Our (almost) Chanukah Tragedy

So Saturday night we lit the 5th candle in the Hannukah menorah, and all the cats were present, and we opened gifts and had a wonderful time.

Well, Faraday had a grievance to air, but that's because we're making him wait until the 8th night to open his Secret Paw gifts and his package from Aunt Connie. (And by the way, some brave soul needs to tell him they're for Allie and Maxwell, too....)

Maxwell hung out on the discarded gift wrap, until he decided to go exploring amongst the gifts.

Mind you, there were five adults in the room, carefully watching him. But still, before any of us could react, he jumped onto the table with the menorah ... and his tail brushed across the lit candles.

We all leapt up to "put him out" (thankfully he was only singed). But still.

Please let this be a warning to all during the holiday season:
open flames and your pet do not mix.

Even if you think you're monitoring the situation, all it takes is one brief second, and severe damage could occur.

I should have known better. I did know better. I thought I could prevent it. And I couldn't.

Protect your pets  ~ go electric.
(and cover the cords from pets who chew them!)

Last Day! Enter until 11:59 PM!

Silent Movie Saturday

There's just something about the lighting - or maybe it's Maxwell's dramatic eyes - that reminds me of the Golden Years of Hollywood.

 Feline Errol Flynn, maybe?
