Unhappy terrible hookah accident :-(

so last night my girlfriend and i were going to do some reviews...we had everything set up and i starting puffing to get it going. I got about 8 puffs in before our new kitten ran up and got tangled up in my brand new razan hose. the whole hookah fell over, my coals went flying. it was terrible. my first instinct was to grab the cat because she was swatting around the coals. After that, my girlfriend was screaming at me to get the coals because they were on our carpet...so without thinking, i picked one up with my bare hand and threw it on my ashtray, then i noticed the other coal was laying on my new razan on my hookah rug. So it ruined my hose but didn't burn through to the carpet.
So..anyway. I ended up with a nice burn hole in our apartment, a slightly burned hand, brand new razan hose with a bad burn hole through it (it's about to split in half), wasted 2 coconaras, somehow ended up burning my ashtray, chipped my already chipped base even more, my stem seems a bit crooked. AND on top of that, we couldn't even smoke after that because my other hoses were at my parents house. Only positive thing is my kitten wasn't harmed.
I was in complete shock afterwards. I can't afford to fix any of that.

Anyone have any tips with burns in carpets? (probably not, but thought i'd ask)
Also does anyone know if i can salvage my hose? I'll try to get some pics up. I thought maybe trying some electrical tape? I don't know much about fixing things.
I don't think i can fix my stem or my base. The base is chipped right where the grommet goes in and now it's sharp enough to cut through skin!

Ahh, i just can't believe this happened...Sorry guys, i had to vent.

those are the 2 I was considering

I'm glad the cat is OK, but that sucks that everything happened the way it did. Do you have another hose you can use?

hey man, ive got over 4 different coal burns in my apt.... my friend said i can probably cut a square section of the carpet where the burn is and replace that only but i know its going to be hard to match the carpet.

is the top part black (part where the coal burnt thru)? if so, just cut the hard black part off til u get near the bottom of the floor w/o cutting the whole carpet. some of the holes i have in my carpet burnt all the way to the plaster crap underneath the carpet, but for the part that didnt, if u just cut the burnt part off it'll look a lil better. you're carpet is still ruin, but its not black and obvious.

okay what you can do is if they are burnt all the way through is go and get the same color carpet and cut the peices you need to fit the holes then take a glue (forget what its called) but when i used to build speaker boxes i would b able to match the carpet colors and what not and make it look like one carpet just make sure you leave alota fluff on top and glue the bottom to the floor lol

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.

Thank you everyone for the tips, i will definitely be trying them out and i'll let everyone know what works best! As much as it sucks, at least my kitten was okay (just scared afterwards) and i came out with only a slightly burned hand. Thanks again everyone.

My cats don't mess with my hookah.
One of them could care less and just sleeps. The other runs up and watches/listens to the bubbles then runs away when I blow out the smoke. It's hilarious.

You can very easily patch the burn holes in your rung with extra carpet from a back closet, a box cutter and some good carpet glue. Cut out the burn with the box knife, then cute out a patch the same size on the unscarred carpet, make sure it fit well before applying glue, if it does fit, apply adhesive and fit into place like a puzzle and weigh it down for a few hours

oh wow, and i bet all that happened in matter of minutes, but felt like eternity!! i'm really sorry i have a cat too and i would think saving my cat would be first also. well you know that everything else is fixable. i hope everything comes out ok, coals don't worry about it at least its only two, the hose is prolly the worst of it all, maybe you can come up with a custom hose if your crafty...
