Thanks, all, for your concern. The little furballs all seem fine, and I have pampered them mercilessly! The headaches have receded for me--I can't speak for los gatos, but they are doing their normal catly things.

Glad the kitties took care of their "person" and everything ended well. I second the suggestion for getting a detector. Cheap insurance.

Thanks for all your concern, folks. Reanie and Katie--I am shopping for propane detectors; they're not too expensive and probably a good bit of insurance.

I actually had a similar experience when I was young and single, living alone in an apartment in Arlington, VA. Had an old gas stove I'd complained to the management about several times because my sensitive sniffer could smell a gas leak. One time a friend was visiting and pounded so loud that she woke me up (in those days I never napped but fell asleep during the day, I was so tired) and yes, once my cat woke me. Yes, they finally fixed the stove. But if it wasn't for the friend and the cat ... who knows?

SMART kitties! 5lbs of fresh tuna should do it.

We're about 2# in. I figure in a week they'll be done with the 5# and be jonesing and I'll regain the illusion that I have the upper hand!

LOL! I completely understand how that goes. Our cat Tuxedo has a built in alarm clock in his furry little head and never lets us sleep in...even when we want to. Used to be 7:19 he would wake us, now its 6:50. He purrs to wake us, but the message is still the same, "TUNA NOW!"

I'm glad to hear that you have no lasting ill effects from the gas. That would be truly awful.
