I really enjoy imagery of big, old-fashioned libraries. I also love the concept of library cats. Pretty much, I love the idea of books and cats, and if those two are put together, I couldn't be happier.
Tip of the Day
The above being said, there are a couple of options that allow you to enjoy candles without flames in one way or another. To avoid the danger of an open flame but to still allow you to enjoy the scent of a candle, you could use a candle warmer. There are of course still potential dangers with this option. Though a candle warmer will remove the danger of an open flame, there is still heat involved and could therefore lead to burns on curious paws. There is also typically an electrical cord involved when it comes to candle warmers, and these cords pose the hazard of being chewed on, or causing entanglement and choking. For such reasons, though there is no open flame, it is still safest to keep candle warmers somewhere your furbaby cannot reach them.
Another option is battery-operated candles. These can prevent the dangers of open flames and overall heat and burns. And did you know that there are even scented battery-operated candles on the market? Even so, you still have to be careful having furbabies around battery-operated candles. One reason is because the batteries they require can cause dangerous and potentially fatal injuries if ingested by kitties or pups. The candles themselves can also cause issues if your furbaby is a chewer, as choking or injury to the gastrointestinal tract could result.
We'll also mention that whether you burn candles, use a candle warmer, or set up scented battery-operated candles, some furbabies are sensitive to certain scents. Some scents can spark allergic responses, asthma attacks, or other issues for kitties and pups. If you do use a scented candle and notice any concerning symptoms that might indicate your cat or dog is reacting to the new scent, stop using the candle and, if needed, contact a veterinarian. All in all, if you use any candles in any form, keep your furbaby's health and safety in mind.
