Make sure the switch is set so that the air is blowing down. It will help to push that warm air back down.

    Ties can also be used as cat toys... as long as the can wiggle along either by hand or attached to a stick my cat will attack it! You can also cut into sections and sew (or tie it off) to make little pouches and fill them with catnip or more tie material... then seal the end and poof a stuffed toy for the cat to bat around the house!
