Wow I just freaked out. I looked over and saw Marijke sitting on this ledge with her tail (which is quite bushy) resting over the top of a jar with a lit candle inside! I'm screaming at her "Kijke, GET DOWN!!" and she just looks up and tilts her head

No, she was not burned!

No kidding! Beckham once singed hair off his paw and his whiskers b/c he stuck his face in a candle and started pawing at it. He wasn't burned, but it sure smelled nasty.

Not all animals are inherently afraid of fire!

I quit burning candles when my neighbors cat stuck his head over one and burned his ear

I had one burning outside before and Patches stuck her face in it too. What is wrong with them?

I try and make sure when I burn candles they're up high enough to where Miss Nosy can't get into them. We've had a few incidents where I've had to yell at her to get her face out of the jar.

Dorks!

My cats have caught their tails on fire many times, thanks to rubbing up against the longer candles in the house. I don't know if they're just stupid, or what.

Does anyone know of any good hairball control food? Or even anything that will control hairballs? I'm getting rather tired of waking up in the middle of the night, fumbling my way to the bathroom in darkness, and stepping in a fresh hairball. The vet recommended IAMS hairball control food, but it doesn't seem to work much on this guy:


(Oh, does he ever look pissed off there)

We brush him every second day as well.

Usually they avoid them b/c I use Christmas/pine scented candles and they loathe the scent of pine and citrus, but this was a vanilla one and I didn't realize Phil lit it on the ledge. Oops.

GG, when I look at your cat I think "hairball" He's purrrrdy.

Yup, I'm the one who lit the candle. I guess if the cat would have caught on fire, she never would go near a candle again though right? RIGHT???

I'm kidding and I'm sorry.

haha, you'd think so....but with Marijke....she's kinda dumb!

I'm moving that candle up high when I get home, I forgot I'd put it there where she sits (to torture the fish in the tank and drink from their filter).

I don't know if you can see it in this picture, but little Huckleberry (our latest addition to the household, this summer), had almost no whiskers when we found him...they were all singed off. We have no idea how it happened...

I don't think "hairball" formulas really do anything. Have you tried adding a little olive oil to his food?

You could also try Petromalt, which is a hairball forumula available at any petstore. Some cats love it and will lick it from your finger. If they dont I just open their mouth and scrape it off my finger using their top teeth

Brushing them is also important, especially long hair cats.
