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 lovely goldfish
Mr Bigglesworth, has lived to the ripe old age of 10, and is still with us. For the first nine years of his life he lived in the porch, first with Mr Bendyfish, his esteemed colleague (who got his name when his tail began to bend upwards at a 45-degree angle towards the end of his life). After this, he moved to temporary accommodation with us, and then to his new home. Unaccustomed as he was to regular human contact, he quickly got used to people milling around him and stroking his tank (he likes this).

So much so, that I now have an attention whore fish, who will pick up one of the bright blue pebbles from the bottom of his tank and throw it at the glass when he feels lonely. This backfired on him the other week when he nearly swallowed one and my dad apparently nearly had to perform fishy CPR.

Long live Mr B.
