And now, a cute picture of our cat.
Catfish's favorite thing in the world is to sit on our heater. When it's off, the pilot light is still on, so the top of it is a little bit warm all the time. We put a placemat on it so she can sleep on it, and she pretty much never wants to do anything else. She treats the heater like it's Shangri-La.
But when the heater's on, of course, it's much too hot for her to sit on. And when it's been turned off, it still retains a fair amount of heat, and it'd be dangerous to put the mat on it right away. So when we turn the heater off, we have to wait for several minutes for it to cool down before we can put the mat back on.
This is Catfish sitting next to the heater, impatiently waiting for us to put her mat on it.
Really. When the heater's been turned off, she sits on that little bookshelf next to it, and glares at us until we put the mat on. The moment we do, she's on it like a shot.
