    I have recently got a new rescue cat (has to have my other one put down in November as she has severe renal failure, blood everywhere not pretty) but this new cat is, how shall i out this, a bit on the large side, at 7kg (sure I have her down to 6 now) but she is 5 and sits next to me (not on me) and keeps me nice and warm :-)

    Spend ~100pcm. Roughly 50/50 gas and leccy - 2 bed back to back terrace. Suspect main offenders are aged server, aging TV, and aged combi-boiler. Oh, and lack of "pegging out" location leading to excessive reliance on tumble drier.
    Cats: 1. Probably something of an energy sink, as it causes things to be washed more frequently.

    Currently 125 per month for both Electric & Gas - with Scottish Power and managed to fix the price before the recent hike until August 2015 (I think). Four bedroom detached house with wife and three kids; TV always on, dishwasher, washing machine, etc, etc - so typical heavy useage for our family.

    I pay slightly more than that, however I pay no standing charge, so overall it works out cheaper.

    Three (it's a three now but was built as a two, the large master bedroom at the front has been stud-walled into two bedrooms) bed terrace. British Gas were charging me 140 per month because they'd somehow estimated I was going to use over 33,000 units of gas this year. I've just swapped to Utilities Warehouse and I'm now paying 70 per month (combined gas and electric). Combi boiler, but the heating is scheduled on for two hours per day. Oven is electric.

    Not sure how much use this is, but there you go.
