Warning: Cat May Be Flammable

I had the following email exchange with my best college buddy today:

Her: Guess I didn't tell you that my cat caught on fire last night. Opie is fine, but the house still smelled like cooked kitty. Not even all the air freshener in the world can kill that odor.

Me: Your *cat* caught on fire? Your CAT?!?

Her: Yep. Opie sautee.

Me: Do I want to ask *how*?

Her: Candle on the living room table.

I didn't want to know any more.

While I was a senior in college, a friend lived off campus in an apartment over the town's pizza place.

One night, he came home and found his apartment...the pizza place, and the two businesses on each side of the pizza place smouldering from a fire.

Turns out...the cat, left alone while he went out of town, ran across the apartment (as cats are wont to do) and knocked over a candle that he left lit. The cat survived

I adore my cat, but they are minions of Lucifer. If mine ever did something like that (albeit if I were absent enough to leave a flame going, I'd deserve it), there would be fricaseed feline.

One of my wife's cats once caught his tail on fire from an open candle. She put it out by grabbing it and smothering the flame (helps to have asbestos hands for that trick). That prompted a new rule: no open flames where cats can get at them. Candles go in holders that shield the flame, if they get used at all in our house.
