Last weekend, it was like someone flipped a switch and put an end to the pleasantly mild weather Japan has been enjoying this fall. Since then, it’s been piercingly cold winds, gray skies, and as of this morning, a steady downpour on the Tokyo area.

To fight off the chill, many people fired up their halogen space heaters. Handy as they may be, though, they don’t warm the air so much as the body of whoever is sitting closest to the device. As such, everyone wants the prime spot right in front of the heater, including this cozy pet parrot.

While massive crowds of costumers were out and about roaming Tokyo on Halloween night, the sudden cold snap had some people hunkering down at home. One such individual was Japanese Twitter user and Bourke’s parrot owner @akaba_211c.

Bourke’s parrots are quite a bit smaller than the standard-size parrots you get when graduating from pirate college, and @akaba_211c has enough space in his home for two of the birds. But while he’s got multiple pets, it looks like he’s only got one space heater, which in turn has zero empty spaces in front of it.

For many of us, our first instinct when we’re cold is to curl up in order to feel the comfort of our own body heat, but this luxuriously lounging bird seems to be more interested in evenly distributing the warmth from the heater to all parts of his body. Still, seeing how there’s no space left for his feathered buddy, @akaba_211c might want to consider picking up a second heater, or maybe even a third if he’d like to have one for himself, too.
