Cat and Dog Act Gone Bad!
This isn’t my typical nature post but this is worth changing everything around for the day! My mother continues to be tested by her two adopted kids teaming up together and causing nonstop trouble. I received this phone call from her telling me about how this most recent event went bad for everyone.
Supposedly the dog decided that it was too cold outside and left a stinky treat for my mother on the kitchen floor! Upset with the dog, she yelled at him and cleaned up after it. Because it had stunk so bad, she decided to light 3 candles to help mask the horrific odor. Of course the cat had to investigate the crime scene after hearing her partner in crime had been yelled at (as she always does).
My mother continued telling me how she was running around trying to get ready for a funeral that she was about to attend. While running around the house and head outside to start her car; she happened to notice 4 flames over in the kitchen. With motherly instincts she realized that the cat’s tail was on fire. You have to hear how my mother explains it but there sat the cat with no clue that she had just placed her tail in the wrong location. Mother now needed to rescue her, ASAP!
Of course my mother freaked out (as would anyone finding their babies on fire) and smothered the flame by placing the closest towel over the cat’s tail. Being startled by all the excitement the cat took off hiding in a location which made it impossible for my mother to check to see if she had been burned.
Of course the cat is perfectly fine with only shorter hairs on her tail now. We continued to discuss how lucky the cat was that those huge flames were seen just as the event happened. We could only imagine what would have happened if the cat got startled while on fire and hid somewhere!! She could have burned down the whole house, curtains or even one of the couches. She is so luck that she didn’t get seriously burned which wouldn’t have been good.
So, not only did the house stink from the dog, it now smelled like burnt cat hair. MOM – I know you are reading this! PLEASE place your candles in locations which the cat will not be sticking her tail or whiskers in!!
