Bad Kitty

Usually Bootsy, our cat, stays out of the limelight. The worst he does is hiss or scratch at the dog.  Well, he did something pretty significant this time.

My husband went outside to fire up the grill.  He was planning to make dinner.  Unfortunately, he wasn't able to. The propane tank was empty.  "Didn't I just fill this thing?"

"Yeah, you did," my daughter confirmed.

"I know what happened," said my son, Bubba.  "The cat turned on the grill when he sat on the side where the knobs are.  He drained the tank!"

Bubba was right. That's exactly what he did.  Bad Kitty!

  2. Now you have to wonder if he knew exactly what he was doing. ;)

    1. You know, since it was probably nice and warm for him sitting there, I'd say he knew exactly what he was doing!

  4. Oh yikes. Hey, if you get Coupons.com there were coupons on their for three bucks off a tank refill or new tank. I don't know if it's still up, but usually during this time of year, straight on through fall, they pop up.

  5. I turn off the knob on the propane tank in case the grill gets turned on by accident.

    Love,

    1. That's what we'll be doing from now on. Thanks for suggesting it, though, in case we hadn't thought of it.

  9. That darn cat! He was scheming for you to make tuna something for dinner so that he could get the juice. Pretty crafty, actually.
