These past few days have been relatively sunny and warm. The temperature may have actually reached 75°F! So, I decided to go ahead and shut the gas off to save a little money.
The summer nights in Seattle are cool, usually in the low to mid 50's. That's cold enough that Rose and Willow seek out heat. So, sure enough, the day after shutting off the gas, I come downstairs in the morning, and I see Rose jump up on the stove expecting it to be warm but instead it is stone cold. She walked around the top looking confused and sad. After a minute, she gave up and sulked off.
Feeling horrible for taking away this simple pleasure from Rose's life, I did what every cat obsessed person would do. I immediately turned the gas back on and apologized profusely to her.
Silly humans, always messing with purrfection.
