I’m not much into the “cat blogging” phenomenon, but I couldn’t help but pass along this fascinating piece of cat behavior.
I turn my furnace off at night, and during cold snaps like this one the inside temperature will often drop below 50 degrees, so my cat has taken to spending much of his morning patiently sitting in front of the air vent in my office, just soaking in the heat. Of course, I rarely set the thermostat above 60, so the cat’s forced hot air paradise only lasts so long. And when it does stop, he places his paws on the wall above the vent and gently kneads it, as if trying to coax out a little more warmth.
Kinda cute. And a little pathetic.
