The integumentary system regulates temperature inside the body by insulation, trapping heat inside the body and making it difficult to escape. This is one of the reasons why the human body is normally warm to the touch.

The skin interacts with other body systems to maintain homeostasis by helping to regulate body temperature.

Your skin has a layer of fat (subcutaneous fat) that acts like a blanket. Also the blood vessels in the skin will shunt blood into the core away from the skin.

How does the skin help us?

Skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is a protective covering - keeps bacteria out, keeps warmth in. It provides us sensory perception: we feel through nerve endings on the skin (touch, heat, cold, pressure, pain). Skin acts as part of the excretory system by ridding the body of salts (sweat). It helps us produce vitamin D when we are exposed to sunlight.

Do cats like resting on warm platforms?

Yes, they do. It feels comfortable and nice. Just because they have fur that keeps them warm, doesn't mean when they go on a warm platform, they get too hot! Animals with fur can sometimes withstand more heat than we can. The fur on them not only keeps them warm, but because it is so thick, the fur takes the heat and hasn't reached the skin part yet. (You see, there is the outer side of the fur, and the inner side of the fur, which is attached to the skin.) If heat touches the outer side, the animal can't feel that much heat because it hasn't reached the skin. For example, you touch a hot surface with your skin. If you put a thick, fur coat above the surface then touch it, it doesn't hurt. It works too if you have it all over your body.

Most heat exits the head, most of the rest is through water sweated through the skin.
