Hi! It's me, BJ, the cat!
There's something to be said for draping myself across the heat vent. This cures all (tell that to my folks, because they are both under the weather with a bug of some sort). My Dad is really sick, coughing and hacking and spewing stuff into the sink. My Mom has a sniffle and is complaining that her head is stuffled (or something like that).
I think they should both just flake out on the floor, and flop down on top of a heat vent. They'll feel much better.
I always do.
Meoooow to my fellow felines!
