If your pet could write you a thankyou note, I'm sure it would wish to express gratitude for certain human technological achievements. Among these would be obvious boons such as the tennis ball, the fireplace and the paddling pool. And not far down that list of things to be thankful for would, I'm certain, be the humble blanket.

Blankets, throws, duvets, doonas, quilts, comforters - whatever you call them, they're a class of miraculous objects that exclude cold, see off insecurity, and bring pleasure. In their weave they store warmth and, often, the scent of a loved one.

No wonder our pets become so attached to them.

Like the way Oscar is attached to that duvet, which forms an envelope of warmth around him.
