The Warm

Our kitten, Frank, loves to be nice and toasty warm.  Whenever I pull out the heating pad he gets excited in the hopes he'll get to snuggle into it.  He also has figured out that warm air comes out of the air vents.  I find him all the time laying on top of the vents when the air is off hoping to absorb some of the heat off the metal...and lately he has acquired a new talent.  See below.

He straddles the vent while the heat is on.  He'll stand like this for the entire time the air is blowing.  Smart little rat. 
(As an aside, doesn't Winston look THRILLED that Frank is hovering that close?)

That is so cute. Black cats are funny. Tuxie used to lie on the heater vent all the time. One time burned his little paw and we had to put neosporen on it. But He still kept doing it. I miss him so much.

Smart cat! I have a small cat back home with my parents who lies in front of the fridge on her side and shoves her feet right up against the vent that blows hot air out of the bottom of the fridge. She's small enough that you can still open and close the fridge door without her moving, so she just stays there all day long.
