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.

S&M cats...or something like that
When I lived at home we had 4 cats, one of them, a huge black and white monster called Tobermoray (Toby) was mental to say the least.

When my mum had cleaned the kitchen, bleaching the white work surfaces in there, the cat would start slavering and get very excited, leaping up and rolling all over them - to the extent that he actually bleached some of his black fur to a weird brown colour. He'd get really aggressive if you tried to move him. It never seemed to bother him, and we were just a bit amazed that he'd get so excited by bleach!

He also blew up a tv once - he used to p!$$ on everything possible - and aimed directly at it while it was on - causing it to go up in sparks and smoke - he looked a bit suprised...he probably enjoyed the cheap thrill tho, the sicko lol

Seen that too
My childhood moggy used to do exactly the same with bleach after my mum had been washing the front doorstep or whatever.

Not half as effective as catmint though, which puts almost all cats into a hyperactive, drooling state!

mine doesn't like catnip or catmint (isn't cat mint supposed to scare them off) I was dead disappointed! But he does attack the bearer of crab sticks with fury!!

Catmint and catnip is pretty much the same stuff I think, but a different variety. Nepeta mussinii or Nepeta catarii if I remember correctly.

I've never known a cat which isn't affected by it to some degree. Yours must be quite unusual!
