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.

kitty flambe
one of my cats, miscellaneous, feels the need to walk across the table inbetween chairs in the living room to go from one chair to the other (lazy git... a short hop will do). one evening i had a lit candle sitting on the table, and miscy decided she wanted to transverse the table and stop to sniff the candle.

in my attempt to keep her from sniffing the candle and singeing her whiskers, i panicked and pushed her off the table. as i did so, she turned at just the right angle, so instead of lighting her face on fire, the tip of her tail went right into the flame and immediately started smoking in preparation to set fire.

luckily it went out as soon as she hit the floor, but the living room smelled of burnt lavender fur for the next five hours. she licked it and made it feel better... but she was more upset with me for making her get down than trying to make char broiled kitty.
