Why do cats have a compulsion to put out candles? And if you watch closely, I think you’ll see that at least half of these cats appear to be left-handed. Maybe candle-snuffing is a natural urge in southpaw cats.
You’ll also observe that some of these clips have been set up by humans–we don’t generally leave burning candles sitting on the floor. People will do anything to get on Youtube.
Don’t blame the cat if he burns your house down, chuckles.
