To fend off mortality, I've got the heater vent open and my toes stuck right over it. I have a vague memory of being told that this was not good for me either, but the absence of a specific phrase of warning prevents me from worrying about it. It feels nice, so I do it. Anyway, the cat has been doing this for years and she's still around, so how dangerous can it be? But then, she also eats freshly killed vermin and licks her butt and takes no apparent harm. I don't think I'd enjoy those things as much as I enjoy feeling the heat soak into my damp toes. Some things cats do are good to emulate, and some things they do aren't.
I'm blathering. I wonder if that indicates the onset of fever? I'd better take some pills and go to bed (under a thick pile of blankets), just in case.
