    Her tail caught on fire...

    Advertisements
    Yep my cats! I was cleaning up today and had a candle lit on the kitchen table. She never ever ever gets up there so I did not even think twice when I lit it. I was cleaning the kitchen and feeding maddy her lunch and I happen to turn around to see her standing on the table. I told her to get down and started to walk across the room and her tail slid across the candle and went up in flames. I got her and got it out within a few seconds but it scared the HELL out of me and smelled quite nasty too. I thought I was going to have a heart attack!!! I thought the kids were good at giving me a scare. She wont even go near the table now lol Guess I won't be lighting candles anymore

    I cried, I couldn't help it. I've heard of it happening before but never really thought about it with her because she is so good about not getting on the counters and tables. Guess I learned a big lesson today.

    Just singed the hair and not even really that bad. I grabbed her as soon as it happened and got it out.

    Wow, that is scary! You can always use those fake candles that are battery operated. They have ones that smell nice and also give off a candle-like glow. Glad she is ok!
