Cat on a Hot Entertainment Center

Pet owners know the struggles of living with curious animals.  Cat owners, more specifically, know their animals are like perpetual toddlers."He doesn’t read the warning label that says place nothing within 3 feet of the heat source."

They get into everything.  My cat Tucker is a bit like Dr. Strangelove.  If you saw the movie, you know the character was constantly battling to restrain an arm that wanted to make a Nazi salute.  Tucker isn’t a German scientist, but I’ve caught him on counters and shelves trying to knock objects onto the floor.  You tell him, “No!” and he stops.  Then, a couple of seconds pass and he makes another attempt.  After the second “No!”, his paw starts to quiver and you realize his internal struggle.

My commands versus his internal nature.  My latest concern is the electric firebox I purchased over the weekend.  He did his best to assist with assembly.  Then, when I finished he wanted to curl up in front of the unit.  He doesn’t read the warning label that says place nothing within 3 feet of the heat source.  This is going to be an ongoing effort to position the box at a point where he can’t become a torch, although.  Since I’ll place it along the edge of an entertainment center, he’ll then work to send it crashing to the floor.
