Cat on a hot-PLATE: Does any pet really need protective boots to explore the kitchen?


Smart: Mischief the cat modeling his bespoke heatproof 'Kitten Mittens'

Curiosity will no longer necessarily kill the cat.
Thanks to these groundbreaking kitten mittens, cats investigating dangerous hot hobs and other kitchen surfaces will not burn themselves - as long as they remember to put their heatproof boots on.
The launch of the bespoke boots comes after a survey found 43 per cent of all cat owners worry that their kitchens are unsafe for their beloved pets.

Snug fit: Inquisitive Mischief the cat will no longer scald his paws when he goes to investigate what's cooking in the kitchen

Owners such as housewife Jackie Cable find that their curious cats ended up burning their paws when seeing what's for dinner.
Her pet Mischief regularly lives up to his name as he clambers on to the ceramic kitchen hob.

Safe at last: Housewife Jackie Cable, with Mischief, can finally relax about him snooping around the kitchen thanks to his bespoke boots

Mrs Cable, 35, from Newbury in Berkshire, said: 'My cat means the world to me, but cooking anything when he is around is a nightmare.
'He gets under your feet when he senses food is being prepared.
'Several times Mischief has hopped up on to the ceramic cooking plate and burnt his paws quite badly.
'Once I had to take him to the vet as the burns were so bad they caused a cyst.'

Innovative: The boots were launched after a survey showed cat owners are concerned about their dangerous kitchen surfaces

Mischief's new mittens means he now is free to explore the kitchen without the risk of scalding himself.
Mrs Cable added: 'He is happy to wear them and it's a big relief to know he is safe, particularly because of how badly burned his paws used to get.'
The survey, of 2,000 pet owners, was carried out to mark National Pet Month.
