Chun likes to play on the stove. Whenever I see him there, I make loud noises and tell him no and plop him on the floor. He only behaves for a moment before he’s back, unless I distract him with a mousie. Thank goodness he has never jumped on the stove while it is hot.
Today, he climbed on the back of the stove, above the temperature dials and started pushing them with his paws, like he was trying to turn the burners on. Maybe I can teach him how to scramble tofu and make chickpea curry. One thing I cannot manage to teach him, however, is basic personal safety. At least it’s an electric stove – no open flame.
