Dave doesn't mind cold weather, like many cats do. While Jack spends much of the winter months sitting on furnaces, people, or other warm objects, Dave doesn't change much about his habits. One thing he does do, however, is employ The Crevasse. It's a perfect time to do so, because being covered on both sides helps Dave conserve his body heat, as well as avoid any wind chill. Dave remembers sleeping outdoors on the mean streets of Iowa, where it can get cold. Although he now lives in an indoor, climate-controlled environment, he still carries over some of his old habits, like shielding himself from wind.
