CAT ON FIRE FOR CHRISTMAS!!
Just thought the forum might like a bit of a chuckle the day after Christmas.
As some of you may know, Oregon has been socked in with more snow than has ever been seen here. Winter weather has been snarling the city for almost two weeks making Christmas preparations near impossible.
There has probably been at least 10-12 inches of snow but 4' snowdrifts at our place and the low was 17 degrees. My two dogs have considered this a personal challenge as they decide which snow drift to scale like a mountain to do their business. Stuey is very careful and cautious and Sadie runs around diving into the highest drift and scooping up the snow with her tongue. She lies in the snow like a crouching lion, waiting for Stuey to come near so she can attack. She comes in with huge ice snow balls hanging off her fur so have to take time to dry them both. They have reminded me of kids with the first snowfall.
Anyway, yesterday my daughter and new son in law (they got married July 12) came to our home to open gifts and got stuck near our home. They were late anyway because navigating the roads has been a real nightmare. We finally began to open gifts late morning & realized we were going to have to stop and transfer everything to their house because dinner was in the oven and & it was going to have to be taken out before we were through opening gifts.
We packed up the gifts and dog stuff and off to their house we went for the day. Stuey and Sadie, especially Sadie, have to be very good and they are not because they own a cat (& dogs want to chase him) that my daughter dearly loves as much as I love my dogs. I have has to keep them on a leash everytime we take them to their home and the dogs of course hate that. I had them off thinking they were better around the cat when I heard my husband and son screaming to get the cat which immediately brought me to reality. Sadie was chasing the cat with Stuey in pursuit when the cat jumped up on their china table that has several candles burning and lit its tail on fire. Anyway, cat jumps down and I guess puts the fire out, although it was singed and oh did it stink like burning hair does!
Needless to say Stuey and Sadie were definately in the dog house after that! It was a most memorable Christmas.
