lol...apparently the tea kettle offends them!

lol i had my tea kettle on the stove boiling some water so that i could have a little bit of tea. It's a whistling tea kettle. A minute ago it started to whistle very loudly- and it scared the tarnation out of the Kolar and the dogs The dogs went nutso and started barking and howling at it Kolar ran bout 90 miles an hour and hid under the bed to seek safety from the "evil whistling beast: Anyone else's animals do this with your tea kettles? lol it's quite humorous!

Fortunatley mine doesn't whistle....I can only imagine if it did! Noodles would probably enter a glaring contest with it. Mooch would hide and peek from whatever hiding spot was farthest away yet still convenient.

Now that I think about it, I don't think it's ever bothered my dogs at my Mother's! Thoes 2 get going if you shut a closet in my old bedroom or even one upstairs. Crazy dogs!

I love my whistling one- i just got it a few weeks ago. It's fire engine red / I've used it several times now- and everytime - they all go crazy Fosters and our new dog Digger just ran into the kitchen with their ears perked up and tails sticking straight up and went crazy trying figure out what it was

Mine all duck and cover a little bit when the tea kettle whistles. Except for Leo. He investigates.

My mother used to have one of those while we lived in england, it reminds me of my childhood. I wouldnt mind getting one of those again, but i find it alot easier to use my cheap kettle that i got for 10 euros and its electric!

Gizmo is my "investigator"! All the other cats run, but Giz is up on the stove batting at the steam coming out of the kettle! Of course, this is also the one that decided to jump up on the open hot oven door when I was getting a pizza out one night. I've never seen a cat move so fast (he was fine...his paws were only on the stove for a split second and there was no damage). Guess he learned his lesson, he hasn't tried it again! I haven't figured out if he is really brave, or really stupid!

Our kitties just get annoyed. If it's whistling and I don't get to the kitchen immediately, they come looking for me!

Mmm, some tea sounds nice right now...

Anya doesn't freak out at the tea kettle, but the gurgling of the coffee pot gets her every time. She jumps up on the counter next to it and puffs up twice her size and just watches it. I don't know what she expects it to do...
