I burn candles, but won't leave them where tails can reach... a couple months back, JoJo's tail flipped to hang over the coffee table where some tea lights were burning... far enough in where I didn't think her tail would get to them. I smelled something funny... a few hairs caught some flame, but only singed. No flaming kitties here. So now the lights only burn on top of the TV and on the speakers (next to the TV where they don't roam). and I don't leave them unattended.
She had no clue anything was wrong... it was just the tips... so I still burn them, but in places they don't go, and can't get to. No problems since.
DOH! Was so focused on commenting about candles and cats that I forgot to comment on the pics... Je suis un Bonehead.
Very cute pics... she's probably wondering what it is... she has that look on her face...
"Is it edible? Can I touch it? Hmm... it's warm."
