Re: terrible hookah accident :-(
Thats a bit of a shit one vegloo! Sorry to hear about your rather unfortunate experience. One thing I've learned however is that Hookahs and cats/dogs don't mix.
I don't have pets but my hookah was knocked over twice by my friends dog when we were chilling at his place. Fortunately there was no serious damage.
If there's a lit hookah in the house make sure the pets are far away.
