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.

R.I.P. Mr Hedgehog
When I was much much younger a friend and I found a hedgehog in a field. We thought it was cute so we wanted to keep it. We were both old enough to know that neither of our respective sets of parents would be thrilled if we brought it home, so we came up with the brilliant plan of burying a bucket to the rim and dropping it in there so it couldn't get away. After playing with it for a bit (which, looking back, was probably more like torture for the poor thing) we left it in the bucket, already making plans on what to feed it and what tricks we could maybe teach it.

Except it rained that night.

When we got back the next day the bucket was 3/4 full with water and poor Mr Hedgy was dead and drowned.

I still feel like a right hedgehog-murdering bastard whenever I think about it. ;_;
