Puff is a great cat and begs for almost everything I eat.
However, Saturday night he got kind of crazy, jumped up on the stove and scrambled around making a ruckus. When I got over by the stove I discovered he had turned on the gas with one of his paws and luckily I actually saw this happen and turned off the gas which was on quite high.
The only solution to this problem I decided was to take off the knobs permanently except when using the stove. I found that the gas cannot be turned on unless the knobs or handles are in place.
One day I came home from work and the gas was on and my husband was unaware this had happened. I thought he had turned it on and forgot, but now I think Puff has done this before.
I would like to keep the cat out of the kitchen but would have to find a new place for the giant litter box (this cat is 18 lbs and somewhat of a mini-mountain lion). I know someone who suspects her cat started the fire that burned her house to the ground a few years ago. Life is full of risky things to watch out for. Sometimes it pays to be a pessimist.
