Default kitty + hookah = near disaster

So here's the scene. Last night, I'm laying on the floor smoking my evening bowl of Nakhla 2 Apple. My 22" hookah is on the floor in front of me, about hookah height away. HookahPro.com is glowing away in front of me on the laptop, Thievery Corporation is providing a soothing aural atmosphere. The only other light in the room is coming from two candles.

I've got a nice, mellow buzz going...life is good!

Rizzo, one of my cats, decides she wants in on the good life and lays down in front of me. Being fairly dark, I couldn't see that she had lied down on top of the hose. I thought the hose was running behind her and felt it would be better if the hose were in front of her. So I give the hose a tug, the cat freaks out and runs, catching her rear legs on the hose and pulling the hookah right at me. Three red hot ******* Hookah natural coals come flying towards me. Being my turn to freak out, I jump up and start cursing like a sailor.

I guess it goes without saying that the mood was broken at this point. "Luckily", I was laying on an old bed sheet, which the coals mostly landed on. I quickly bundled up the sheet and ran it to the bathtub and turned the water on. One piece of coal landed on the carpet and by the time I got back it had a pretty good mark in it.

I think maybe a "smoking rug" is in order.

Thankfully Rizzo didn't end up with a coal on her back. I don't even want to think what the results of that would have been.

I have a cat that I take care of from time to time. He hates smoke but for some reason loves rubbing up against the hose. I've had quite a few close calls with that cat. He has only succeeded in tipping the hookah once and luckily I was down to a single quicklight burning.

My dog used to be afraid of the hookah, now he just likes to chill next to me with it, but he doesnt ever try to mess with it really.

A hookah rug is always needed man, they arent too costly and you wanna protect whatever surface it hits

Dude, Teardrop is by far my favorite Massive Attack tune..beautiful!

photolinger, yeah for sure on the rug. I'm going to go out this weekend and pick something up. I'm going to re-arrange the room a bit and make things a bit more comfortable for smoking.

uglybiker, that is a GREAT pic! LOL!

My two senior kitties are pretty apathetic about my hookah. They usually pay no attention and retreat to the basement on their own at night. It's my young male tuxedo cat, Chaps, who makes mischief everywhere he goes. If the hose moves, he bats at it. If I've just cleaned the base of my hookah and set it on the floor, he scrubs himself all over it leaving black hairs all over it. When I'm smoking, he looks up at me and cries. Maybe he's getting in touch with his royal Egyptian ancestors

My two dogs are little enough to stay away from the KM. They know better. One got it on top of them (Thank god while it was in storage mode. It's like a transformer...) and he now never goes near it. HAH!

My dog is deathly afraid of my hookah, like everything else. Once she hears the bubbling, its straight downstairs and under the cough for her. But before this fear set in, she would come way too close to knocking over coals with her crazy tail, and I would always get so nervous when she was around.

One of my dogs kinda smoke hookah once lol. I took a hit then let him lick my face and i breathed it out a little. Then a tiny bit of smoke came out of his mouth. Prolly didnt go in his lungs but funny nevertheless. Expecially since his name is yoda.

LOL maybe! Both of my girls are getting up in years, they were curious of the hookah at first, but now they don't much care. Rizzo was just looking for a place to chill, and her favorite place to chill is anywhere she can be near me!

When all was said and done, I was just happy she didn't get hurt.

My cat's getting too old to be so curious thankfully... Im super paranoid when it comes to coals, so even if she'd wanted to sniff around I'd kick her out the room b4 hand.

The Kitty's here are to busy eating sleeping or roaming to disturb any Hookah session

So they stay away from the hookah
