3, when I was 13 years old, I stuck my finger in the holes on the bottom of those things to see if it would hurt.. It stuck for a second or so.... Never... EVER.. Do that, that hurt like a bitch clamping your nipples with pliers LOL.

OP don't put it directly under cold water , you should put toothpaste on it . And then put it under room temperature water .

Never put toothpaste or anything greasy on a burn since it can actually hold the heat in and make the burn worse. Ice is also bad as it can cause ice burns easily.

83, it is actually recommended to have a face cloth over the burn area with the ice on top of that, or having the burn area placed in a bowl of ice water until there is no more heat felt on the hand. Just because it doesn't feel like it's burning anymore, doesn't mean it isn't. - 2 separate First Aid Classes for work and again for another job. Even though I already had it.

A little bump on the nose if they accidentally run into something and serious burns caused by an iron are two completely different things. I grew up on a farm. You do your best to keep your animals safe. Also, some animals are just too dumb for their own good and cannot logically produce a solution to their predicament. Others are way too intelligent that they can hurt themselves proving it.

Also, "things they do frequently?" How often do your cats play with things that burn them?

I know that sucks and I hope you have a speedy recovery but big props to you for loving your pet enough to protect it from the iron!

Your cats an evil mastermind it wanted you to burn your hand. Anyways run it under cold water for about 10-20mins.

Lukewarm water works better for burns. Cold water exacerbates the friction from the transfer of energy on your hand, not to mention worse scarring.
