Fleece & CHEs...Learned my lesson tonight!
 
49 Attachment(s)
I had Lily out for some cuddle time tonight, so I had pushed her CHEs to the back of the cage top so I could open the door and get her out. Had her out for a couple of hours, lots of great snuggles, then got ready to put her away. When I was moving her CHEs back into place after the door was closed, I found...this. http://i605.photobucket.com/albums/tt13 ... C04132.jpg I believe my reaction was along the lines of :shock:! I knew the CHEs got hot, but holy crap! I didn't realize that it would actually melt the fleece. I'll definitely be more careful about having anything touching those now...Glad that it at least happened during cuddle time rather than before bed when it would've been touching the CHE all night. :?

I've got an infrared temperature gun. I pointed it at the CHE out of curiosity when I was working with Fred and Sam's bins, and the ceramic element itself was typically 400-500 degrees when turned on :)

My CHE once snapped & the bulb fell into the cage, left a singe mark. I also once touched the bulb as I didn't think it was working - turns out it was & I got a wicked burn and huge blister on the tip of my finger for a couple weeks.

Wow... :shock: That's definitely a good reminder to be careful with these things, even if they are safe to leave on!
