Heat seeking

c'est Sachat!

My roommates are sick and I think I’m coming down with it. I can’t say I’m thrilled about this.

The only one who seems to be fine is the cat, which is good for her, but annoying as hell for us, because it’s no fun when you’re feeling kind of crappy, minding your own business and someone is biting your leg. I’ve tried to explain this to her but I don’t think she understands.

Our heat still doesn’t work. This place is so draughty that there’s not really any difference between the temperature indoors and that outdoors. Someone came to look at the boiler last week and the prognosis was not good. The landlord decided that she wanted a second opinion but said second opinion has not arrived yet and I’m unclear as to what the plan is there.

We’ve taken to using the fireplace, which cuts the damp a bit, but really doesn’t seem to ward off the chill. Some people say it does but I don’t feel it.

Once again, the one entity in this house that seems to be keeping warm is the cat, but not in a way that I’m comfortable with. The other day I looked over toward the fireplace to see that she was curled up in the corner behind the grate. Aww, she looked comfy.

I did a double take. The cat is in the fireplace. She is going to track soot everywhere and dirty stuff up. I need to discourage this behaviour!

It was shortly after that that I realized that there was also fire in the fireplace. The logs were still glowing red. The cat was snuggled up beside it.

Trying to explain to your roommate how her cat got cooked on your watch is not a conversation I want to have. I sprayed her with a squirt bottle. She ran out. She was pretty pissed off with me.
