This is a question Accidental animal cruelty

I once invented a brilliant game - I'd sit at the top of the stairs and throw cat biscuits to the bottom. My cat would eat them, then I'd shake the box, and he would run up the stairs for more biscuits. Then - of course - I'd throw a biscuit back down to the bottom. I kept this going for about half an hour, amused at my little game, and all was fine until the cat vomited. I felt absolutely dreadful.

Have you accidentally been cruel to an animal?
This question has been revived from way, way, way back on the b3ta messageboard when it was all fields round here.

My doggie...
Is a rather excitable yet tremendously affectionate collie / lurcher cross. He loves nothing more than waiting until you've put your dinner down on the coffee table and watching you leave the room to grab a beer, as he always sees it as a means to vary his diet.

Unfortunately he tried this one day after i'd made a particulary hot chilli.

Aha!! I thought as I came back in the room, hopefully the burning sensation in his mouth will negate the craving for his dads food.

.....however, he didn't even flinch. That is until the next morning when I took him for a walk before going to work.

He did the "move your back legs as forward as possible" pose so that he didn't shit on his heels, and proceeded to start curling one out.

There's me stood there, my dog having a shit, and whining louder than I've ever heard him as the ring sting kicks in.

Poor little sod didn't have a clue what was going on as the habanero's i'd used were chemically removing the lining of his anus..

I couldn't help but laugh....

And he still steals food when he thinks he can get away with it.

lurchers ftw
I have one of those too - see my profile for pic. Actually, I don't know why people think everyone wants to see pictures of their dog / cat / small child, but as parents / owners we seem to feel an uncontrollable need to show them off.

Anyway, mine is also a thief and a cheat. I love the look on his face when he checks to see if anyone's looking, then steals away with whatever prize he fancies.

He won't touch anything stronger than mustard though - and he's basically scared of any noise louder than a fart.

I have a colleague...
... who, when she can't be arsed cooking, will buy an extra large kebab and divide it into three portions: most for herself, some for her three-year-old daughter, and some for the cat, who seems to like chilli-sauce slathered kebab almost as much as tandoori chicken.

I had to read this 4 or 5 times
before I could correctly parse this sentence. I thought the dog was stealing the beer, not the dinner.
