I thought by the title of your thread this was going to be something to do with superstition..! glad shes ok! bet it took 10 years off your life. It will grow back though.
the other night mark was just finishing cooking and had been using several rings on the hob. Nismo was up on the counter but i was watching her, she walked over to the cooker and started doing this kind of dance and i thought what the heck is she doing?? then mark went 'OH MY GOD!!!!' and we realised she's walked over a hot ring. we put water all over the counter and stood her in it and tried to run her paws under the tap but thats now easy with a 10 week old.
She was absolutely fine, i think she just got a shock, i could only hold my finger on the ring for a second or so, so it must have been hot for her but i think they are thick skinned... i felt like a terrible meowmy
