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.

Fried or Boiled?
When I was just 10 or so my brother had 2 gerbils, a black one (called snowflake for some bizarre reason) and a white one.

One day I decided (God knows why) to put the white gerbil in the microwave to 'see what happened'. In my 10 year old brain I was just thinking it would be funny to watch it run round on the little turntable. The radiation and actual damage it would do to the gerbil didn't occur to me.

Anyway this suddenly dawned on me and I grabbed it out of the microwave shaken but apparantly unharmed. A few weeks later it got these huge boils on it's body and had to be put down by the vet.

You can't imagine how bad I feel about this.
