As temperatures drop tonight, we wanted to share these tips!
1. Layer up! Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. Gloves and a hat will help prevent losing your body heat.
2. Frequent checks on our senior family members, friends, and neighbors.
3. Don’t forget your furry friends. Bring pets indoors. If they can’t come inside, make sure they have enough shelter to keep them warm and that they can get to unfrozen water.
4. Remember the three feet rule. If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away – things such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs.
5. Requires supervision – Turn off space heaters and make sure fireplace embers are out before leaving the room or going to bed.
6. Don’t catch fire! If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs.
7. Protect your pipes. Run water, even at a trickle, to help prevent your pipes from freezing. Open the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals out of the reach of children. Keep the garage doors closed if there are water lines in the garage.
8. Better safe than sorry. Keep the thermostat at the same temperature day and night. Your heating bill may be a little higher, but you could avoid a more costly repair job if your pipes freeze and burst.
9. The kitchen is for cooking. Never use a stove or oven to heat your home.
10. Use generators outside. Never operate a generator inside the home, including in the basement or garage. … See MoreSee Less
Thank you for the heads up, appreciated very much.
Do you recognize me? Someone must be looking for me. I was found on Elaine Drive on Friday, 1/10. I am quite tiny, about 5 weeks old, and female. The nice people at the shelter have been taking care of me, but I know my family is looking for me. If you recognize me please call 860-292-8240. … See MoreSee Less
We would like to adopt the kitten and she would have a great spoiled indoor home with another veteran East Windsor feral kitten
There’s probably more. Can animal control look where this one was found?? Sharing…
Oh my ….. poor baby I wonder if there’s more and there outside. I hope someone checks just to make sure. And I myself would love to help with a home ♥️
Please advise if the owners do not turn up and this kitten goes up for adoption. I would love to give her a home!!
It could not have been around too long. The coyotes seem to make cats disappear and at least 1 dog recently. My dogs have not reacted to anything in our yard. Hope it finds a good home.
Such a cutie. Someone has to missing her💔. Glad she is in good hands.
U are all willing to adopt a kitten what about the older ones that only want to be loved before they leave this Earth .
Kittens find homes quickly , so if u have room.for a playful curious kitten why not a older relaxed cat .
I found a kitten that age in Springfield 5 years ago and she is still with me
I can take this cutie in. I just lost a kitty and we have been feeling that void. Please?
So sweet….I lost my kitty a year ago. He was 5 weeks when I took him home 13 years ago. His momma died. I would love her if a home isn't found. ❤
So cute and glad she/he is saved..just wish all the outside kitties can be saved and safe..
I found one about 5 months ago, same age. He is now Ralphie and spoiled rotten. Love, best food and several brothers and sisters
She is SO undeniably cute! 😍😍😍
I would take her just like my fluffy and smokey that I lost last year xx
She is beautiful!
If this baby ends up needing a forever home I will take him/her
So cute I can foster until we find a home
