One of my heating pads is sick

Our cat Alex is sick at the vet’s office tonight.  I was looking for pictures of him and found this one from a few years ago.  Throughout these past five years, heat has been one of the few things that has helped my symptoms.  Before I stopped working, my squadron mates had a couch installed behind my desk so that I could take frequent breaks from flight planning to  lie down to rest and recover.  Several of my friends still mention how I would have 3-4 heating pads going at once (like in the attached picture from home) in an effort to take the edge off the pain from the RSD/CRPS.  Although our two cats have never been quite as good for heat therapy, they’ve often provided companionship and support during these last several years of chronic illness.
