Need Advice from a Kitty or a Cat Parent

This is Callie snugged up around the burners on my stove top. She has always looked for warm places, but since we moved she always wants to be on the stove when it is hot.

I turn my back for a minute and there she is looking like she’s sitting around a campfire. I’m waiting for her to start roasting marshmallows and singing Kumbayah.

But all kidding aside, this is getting to the point of being dangerous. We are afraid she is going to get burned. All our usual training and disciplinary measures  are having no effect. We  turn our backs and she’s right back at it.

So, first, is heat seeking behavior “normal” for cats? Hershey didn’t do anything like this. And of course, any suggestions for getting the dangerous stuff under control?  I know I have kitties and cat parents following me here and I need your help.
