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 cat arthur
no i didnt give him that silly name! bless him was a rescue cat, see im a sucker so when i walked into the rspca and the little rat looking thing mowed at me i went to him, he turned out to be obscenely friendly and so i decided i must have him in all his 4 toothed glory! anyway i digress.

ever since weve had him (about 5 years now - not bad they told me to expect him to last about 2) he has had skin problems, everymonth or so over the space of about 2 days he would scratch himself till he bled and all his hair had come out around his neck. so every month or so its off to the vet for another dose of steroids and antibiotics to make him all nice and well again. now as we all know trying to get a bloody great pink pill down the neck of a very small but very shap clawed cat is not a simple task. so eventually we resorted to wrapping them up in a piece of cheese and burying it in some other bits of cheese so he thought he was getting a treat.

cue a move of house a couple of years ago and a vet who decided that they wanted to get to the bottom of it once and for all. so after a £300 set of allergy tests it turns out he is alergic to pretty much anything relating to cows / goats. ooops. never mind he now gets to dine exclusively on fish, not fish cat food actual fish (turns out most catfood has beef fat in it) so whilst i may have unintentionally been making him poorly he is now reaping the rewards

lenght too long and not very funny, oh well it beats my earlier post
