Sleepy Kitten Causes Kitchen Fire By Napping On Toaster Oven

Illustration for article titled Sleepy Kitten Causes Kitchen Fire By Napping On Toaster Oven

The theory that technology and pets aren't the best mix is supported by a recent incident in Port Townsend, Washington. In that town, a sleepy kitten caused a kitchen fire by napping on top of a toaster oven.

Apparently the feline was merely trying to find a spot where it wouldn't be bothered by the family dog and in the process wound up stepping on a lever on the toaster oven. The resulting fire was put out with a garden hose and no one—not even the kitten—got hurt. [SF Gate]

Did anyone else think (before clicking on the article) that the cat fell asleep on the toaster and slept while it and the house burned down?
