Quint’s woodsmoke candle – 2013 © Colehaus Cats

Our dearly departed Seth had a favorite candle in our house. It was a big Rosy Rings Spicy Apple candle that he liked to sniff – thankfully, not when it was lit. Quint seems to have taken up where Seth left off, only this time, it’s a small Illume woodsmoke candle and yes, we watch him like a hawk when it’s lit because that seems to be when he likes the smell of it best.

    My angel sisfur Looppy (the bunny) was fascinated by lit candles too. Mommy was a little too snow and poor Looppy singed her whiskers! Now we rarely ever see a lit candle in the house.

  4. ohhhh yesss please do watch him like a hawk! My angel Bobo once had his tail singed by a candle. I no longer put them where kitty tails can casually swish by!

  5. I love those expressions, especially the top!

  6. How cute is he !!
    He looks so much like the cat I had, Little Andy.
    Orange and white like that.
    Got to love orange boys.

  7. lit candles and cats freak me out! I miss having candles around as I like them very much, but I can’t bring myself to do it now that cats are on the scene. – great photos!!

  8. My sister uses battery candles in her home. They are much safer around pets and are also scented.

  9. I bet that smells heavenly! I wish my human had candles here, but she has gotten out of the habit. I blame Binga.

  10. Wow Quint be careful of those pawsome whiskers of yours. We too are watched like a hawk when we have candles in the fireplace. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Beautiful pics! We never get lit candles since Princeton came to live with us….

  13. Mommy does not lights candles because of us! When she was a little kid, a before cat got burned and set the dining room table on fire!

  14. Quint you are liking the smell!
    Mom only has flameless candles in the house now because of us….something about fire….:)

  16. Quint, so glad you are being a good boy and careful. We’ve had some gas stove and candle accidents that weren’t fun or pretty. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
