A nightmare.
I was sitting on the deck talking to friends and playing with a kitten in my lap. The kitten became curious with his surroundings and hopped up on the balcony rail. We continued chatting and watch the kitten play about. The BBQ was on as we were making ribs but the lid was down. The kitten hopped onto the hot lid, SCREECHED, and the leaped off. Unfortunately, as I lunged forward to grab the kitten and put his paws in cool water, he leaped over the rail and fell to the ground. I rushed him to the vet, and he was fashioned with a neck brace. When I brought him home, people told me how cruel I had been for letting TBE play near the BBQ.
