Where there is smoke there is fire!

First of all, we want to wish all of our Catster friends a Happy Thanksgiving!! We would love to send some rosettes out, but we are having trouble with the gift page completly loading!! Is anyone else having this problem? It has been going on for about 3 days now.
Oh yes, we did have some excitement around here the other night. First of all there was this loud noise coming out of this little round thing on the wall. Mom was asleep, but thank goodness this noise woke Mom up. And when she was awake, she found our house full of smoke!! She immediately grabbed Sissel and me and threw us in our cat carriers and carried us out to the garage. She then wisked our dogs, Wesley and Sunny, out to the car. THEN, she called 911!!! Soon there was a big fire engine coming down the street with sirens on and 5 men jumped out of it and ran into our house. It seems the fan in our heating system had overheated and almost caught the whole house on fire!! But these 5 men stopped the fire from causing any real damage and we will just have to buy a new furnace. Mom says she is sure glad she has smoke dectectors in the house and will make sure they are always working properly and she has our carriers close at hand and available for emergencies. Whew, I am sure glad she got us out of there so fast--but maybe next time she should call 911 first???
She justed wanted to make sure all of us were out safely . . .
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hey Smudge... I think your mom did that in the right order... grabbing Sissel first! MOL I'm so happy that your house didn't burn down... you sure have lots to be thankful for. I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.

OMC Smudge, that must have scary and exciting. I'm so glad you, your family and house are okay. Please have a more peaceful Thanksgiving. As for the gifts page... it worked for me this morning.

Wow! That must have been so frightening for you all! I'm sure glad that everyone's o.k. and that your home is still standing! I think, and I pray that I never have to find out, that mom would scoop up us furkids first too!

As you know, we've had problems in the past with the gift page not fully loading. Very frustrating! With us it seemed to be more of a problem with our server than with Catsters itself.

Wishing you and your Family a Happy Thanksgiving! We are blessed to have you as our friends, and are most grateful that you're all o.k. after the fire incident.

~hugs & love~

Oh my goodness! We're glad to hear everyone is okay. I think my Mom would rescue us before calling 911 too!

As far as the gift page not loading completely, try refreshing, as I have found that works sometimes.

Happy Thanksgiving, and happy furnace shopping!

Wowza, that is excitement that you don't need. But, I'm glad your Mom was thinking quickly, and also glad she realized to get the cats out before the stinkin' dogs!

We're thankful you all are okay (even the dogs!).
