Melly's First Fire

We had a fire in Geoff's fireplace this weekend, and it was the first time Melly had seen flames bigger than the ones on candles. She was not sure what to make of them, and observed from a safe distance.

Scarlett had no such qualms.

Of course, this is the cat who set her tail on fire once and didn't even notice*, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.

Just a reminder that today is the last day to enter the giveaway!

*She had it sitting over a candle and the fur caught fire. I put it out immediately and she was totally fine - she just smelled like singed fur for a while.

I don't trust Nicki one bit and haven't burned a candle since I adopted him back in April 2007. LOL. Used to burn candles with Chum and Annie around, though--supervised, of course.

We're all glad Scarlett was fine, silly girl!

Melly has the better idea. . .stay far away!

Q used to try to get through the screen mesh to get closer to the fire. 9 and Chani just sit very close and stare :)

I'm glad it's fireplace season again!

My kitties LOVE the fireplace -- Bucky sits so close and for so long that I fear sometimes he'll spontaneously combust. The thought of you puttting out a fire on Scarlett's tail made me smile.

We have a place for that, but Iza an I have never seen it with flames. Ayla says she has, though.

We had fires a couple of times in the old house. Boodie tried to climb on the screen. She's not very bright.

Bobo once got his tail singed as well. I was a panicked freak when it happened.

We gave up on flamed candles and now only use the flameless ones that are battery operated.

Moosey is a little freaked out by the fire. Sammy is indifferent, but likes the warmth. :)

We don't have any candles in the house anymore for some reason but we do have fires in the fireplace but Mommy won't let us even touch the glass doors while we watch the embers fly through the air. She's a worry wart.
