Man, that's was a military precision paw strike.
I once worked for a vet. You wouldn't believe the carnage we'd see in a given year due to flame slapping.
she wished for the scary fucking fire to go away
I believe it. Tried to light candles during a power outage exactly once. Within a few minutes, one of the cats was swatting at the flame and almost knocked over a candle. Flashlights only from then on.
I hope he made a wish first.
It was quite satisfying to see. I was expecting a mess.
A true fire fighter
One of my babies tried to sniff a candle flame once. Just the once. Haven't had a repeat for some reason!
