Inquiring Minds


Firsted, Miss Megan from Down Under asked what we do to keep Derby or Ducky from burning their paws on the stove top.

Well, mum usually only uses one burner at a time and as soon as she is done, the tea kettle gets moved on top of the warm burner. This keeps us from stepping on it while it cools off.

You can see that the hots are going and the water is cooking some noodles. 
Then the little tea kettle gets moved here and you can see the red light behind showing that it is still hot.

However, Derby did do this years ago.Here is one of the posts, but there is one before this one and several after talking about when he likely burnt his pads slightly. After than mum started with the kettle thing.
The Katnip Lounge's mum wanted to know about rolling the yarn into a big ball. Well, mum says that some yarns are put together and sold where you can gently pull out the yarn from the inside out. This is not one of them. She would rather take the time to roll it into a ball. It takes up less room in her bag and on the couch. Plus then she can check it for any snags and such too. She says this is a cheaper type of yarn and not her main brand that she likes. But she liked the colors so much that she bought it.
So we hope this answers your questions!

Binga doesn't go near the stove when it is hot! Because usually there is a human nearby who yells at her if she tries. Boodie and I aren't counter kitties.

I am glad you can't burn your toesies. I am not allowed on the cooker, but I don't try to get on any counters anyway apart from the one next to the computer. Mum has got her laptop case there and put a towel on it so I can nap next to her when she is using the desktop.

My mom does that kettle thing, too, only it's just Caroline who might have a notion to pass over the cooktop on the way to the refrigerator top.

Thanks for letting me know. I was concerned for you, but clearly your mum had it figured out and wouldn't let you guys come to any harm.

We are glad that you are safe from burning your toes. That is one of the reasons the head peep has avoided the smooth cooktops.

We love Q & A time at your house!
We gotta teach mom to crow-shay so she can make us colorful blankies with gorgeous bright yarn!

Our mom can't keep us off the stove so she does exactly the same thing your mum does...puts a kettle on the hot part. And for the same reason...Ernie burnt his paws on the stove...since then, she uses the kettle.
