So that's what Sandy's been doing all that time on her PC...

Pirta -- snerk -- Give that girl a cold drink!
(I did a little research, and hair supposedly has an R-value of 3.88 per inch when used as insulation. That would require Pirta to have about 8.25" of fur.)

Nothing about how long it took for Kasi to finish the thing.

hair and fur are different things. snow leopard fur if i remember right is something like two layers of fur. inner and outer thats is designed to trap a insulating layer of air. so the fluff is thinner.

...Kasi's parents killing one and giving it to her to "practice" on. (Remember what she said when she got the pigtails? "I take my pouncing very seriously.")

That's why she probably said "what?" when that pop-up showed near her.

A big cookie in the shape of a water buffalo most likely.

The first table I found says it's 10 inches of fiberglass or rock wool:http://www.allwallsystem.com/design/RValueTable.html Or over 5 inches of polyurethane foam or Thinsulate.

Wait, does this value apply to Pirta's fur, or to whole Pirta?

Are we talking thermal insulation effectiveness or resistance to vertical compression to see if Pirta is a suitable surface for a road in California?

The hair in question is also being used as packed-in insulation not basic body covering. I'd assume it was packed to produce maximum insulating effect, so it's unlikely body hair/fur would be able to exceed that.

I'd love to find some information on the R-factor of different furs, though.
