Almost Wordless Wednesday

Don't bug me

This was just brought to my attention and it is a very important hazard to note about your house!

It seems that many human now keep these paper shredder machines in their home office. These machines can be very dangerous to both woofies and kitties.

Cats like the warmth of the engine. They may curl up on top of the machine to sleep and their furs on their legs or tail could end up pulling the leg or the tail into the shredder.

Woofies have lost their tongues when they stick then in to a shredder that is turned to "auto".

Always keep paper shredders turned completely off when they are not in use or better yet, UNPLUG THEM!

Parker said...

Diamond, I am glad we do not have a shredder in our home!

Cory said...

Oh wow Diamond, that's important to know. My mom and dad keep one closed up in a cupboard so we can't get to it...and it's turned off, but maybe I can convince them to unplug it too. We don't want any shredded tails!

Pee Ess- You look very beautiful today.

Happy Thanksgiving Diamond!

That a very good tip, Diamond! Mom has a shredder...we don't really bother it...but you never know...we may start one day!

Black Cat said...

I read about a kitten who got caught in a shredder a couple of weeks ago on Chase, Kaze and Latte's blog. The poor little kitty was so badly injured he had to be helped to the Bridge. My eyes leaked and leaked. I don't know why anyone who shares their home with a kitty, woofie, bunny, hamster or any other precious companion would leave the darn shredder plugged in! Madness!

You must be psychic (well of course you are, you're a cat, lol!) but only today I was wondering how Thanksgiving Day came about so I was most interested to ready your history of it! :) xxx
