Cracking Kindle light

Post by Gordopolis » Wed February 8th, 2012, 8:46 am

Hi folks,

I just wanted to recommend a Kindle light that I bought for my wife:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCTOVO-Solis--r ... 565&sr=8-3

It's bright without being intrusive, so she can read during the night without waking me, and it runs for ages off a single AA battery. It's also lightweight and not very bulky or cumbersome. Definitely one of those 'why didn't we buy it earlier' purchases.

The only problem we're finding is that one of our cats starts chasing the shadows about at night when it is on! :)

By accident, I completely freaked Padfoot out while reading my Kindle at night. I moved the Kindle away from me but closer to the wall so Padfoot thought this huge shadow was coming to get him. Needless to say he jumped on my head, barked, and woke my husband up. So much for being able to read at night without bothering anyone!

Arf Arf!

It could be worse, out youngest cat once dropped a half-dead bat on my face late at night. She probably though I'd be delighted. I wasn't :rolleyes:

Mine decided to gift me with a live cockroach in the middle of the night. I thought she had one of her plush toys and reached down to throw it off the bed. :eek: :eek: :eek:

All your stories about your cats make me glad I prefer dogs - poor Padfoot! They did all make me laugh though, as well as go "yuck" at the same time.

They are toerags, the cats. But they do (almost) make up for this criminal behaviour with uber-cute acts, like falling asleep with their heads in their dinner bowls.
