Stove-Loving Cat Wears Heatproof Shoes

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Mischief has been fitted with the heavy-duty shoes to protect him when he prowls around his owner`s kitchen in Newbury, Berkshire.


Boiling water has been named among the biggest dangers to pets in a poll for Just Eat, with nearly half of all cat owners naming their kitchens as the most dangerous place for their animal companions.

Mischief is a repeat offender and has often burnt his paws while climbing around as his owner Jackie Cable is preparing dinner."

My cat, Ebony, is fascinated by my culinary expertise, whenever I`m preparing a meal she likes to get close to the action, even if it`s a stove with all four burners on full blast.

Ebony has accidentally turned on a toaster oven, and almost set my house on fire, but (knock on wood), she`s never stepped on a stove burner.

However I might consider buying her heatproof kitten mittens, those clunky shoes will probably prevent her from being able to jump on the stove.

Keep your cats safe: Buy them kitten mittens, or at least ban them from the kitchen when you are cooking.
