    Had a cat cut his self at the salt mine yesterday, and laid his self open pretty good. This cat was cuttin those plastic bands that are about 1/2" wide and used to hold boxes together. Turn up he was cuttin towards his self cut through the band and the knife hit his temple. The cat from the safety team told me it was prolly a 6-7 stitch cut. I hate to see stuff like that but the cat need to learn to use a knife:alex:

    That's what happens when a species without opposable thumbs tries to use hand tools. :dunno:

    Well, at least the cat didn't catch himself on fire, as did the Environment Minister of BC's cat.

    Be sure and keep him away from lit candles.

    That sounds like it COULD have been a LOT worse: what if he had hit his eye(s)? Or even his hand? He could have cut nerves and tendons!

    THIS is just ONE of many reasons why I specifically buy big round lenses for my glasses. With really expensive titanium frames, too; so the frame doesn't fail, when something nasty is hitting my glasses.

    I know for a FACT that ONLY because I was wearing glasses, have my eyes saved from severe damage, or complete loss, several times over.

    I was working in a non OSHA sheet metal shop when I was in college; a heavy steel slug flew out of a punch press and broke the right lens on my glasses.

    It hit it dead center. a couple of tiny pieces of glass got in my eye, but one of my coworkers, who had been in the Marines, held my eye open and washed out the pieces. I would have lost my right eye, for sure. The shop had less than 15 employees, so they had NO safety equipment at all. Nothing. It wasn't required. Not even goggles.

    The asshat owner wouldn't even pay the $25 for a new lens. I was earning $1.75/hr. That was a lot of money for me, back then. :steamed::steamed:

    Glasses with small lenses may be in style, but damn: I only have one set of eyes! :dunno::faint::wow:

    Here's another cat that caught fire: http://www.explodingcigar.com/article197.html

    Roasted cat catches fire, 400 left homeless

    More than 400 Cambodians in Phnom Penh were left homeless when a roasted cat caught fire, sending flames shooting through a village of wooden shacks. The fire, which destroyed 62 houses, was started by a man who tried to cook a cat.

    Police are searching for the culprit.

    And another: http://www.explodingcigar.com/article1507.html

    Cat starts fire that destroys two apartments

    Investigators in Pennsylvania say a cat knocking over a candle started an apartment fire that injured two people and destroyed two apartments. The two injured people are hospitalized but expected to recover.


    They're old stories, but they happened.

    You'd better be careful around all those cats, Mark.
