I had hamsters growing up, of course now I shriek if I see anything rodent like.

One day I was playing with my hamster in a window sill. The window was propped open by a small plastic coffee cup, I think it had Rainbow Bright on it??

The hamster was running around in the open window, and I was sitting next to it, watching it......Next thing I see is my sister coming up, and pulling the cup out of the window!!!!!!!!

Down goes the window, and there goes my hamsters blood and guts all over the window.

Needless to say I wasn't very happy about the ordeal, nor was my mom with having to clean up blood and guts.

I have. It was a total accident and I don't even know if its considered murder.

We have a few outdoor cats that love to hang around the house and where the cars are parked. And a lot of tims they'll lay underneath the cars or even up under in the car parts when its hot out. There have been many time when we are pulling out to see a cat run out from underneath the car and so we've tried to develop the habit of checking underneath the car before we pull out to make sure there are no cats underneath.

Well, one day I had to go into town to run an errand for my mum and had to take the car. I swear I checked underneath the car to make sure there were not cats underneath and I didn't find any, so I went ahead and pulled out of the driveway. So I got up onto the road and started to drive only to my sickening disgust to feel the car's back end rise up like it does when you run over something. I know that feeling very well because this had happened before with an older cat we used to have. I made myself look in the rearview mirror and so one of our cats squirming on the road...............yeah............he quickly stopped moving.

I couldn't believe I had done that.......he must of been hanging onto one of the pipes under the car and once I hit the road--there's a slight bump going onto the blacktop--he must of fell off and went under the rear tire.

Yeah...........that was an awful day....... :(

When I was lil (like 4) my brother and I decided to play in the bathroom with our birds. We filled the bathtub with hot (or warm) water and we put a floating boat like thing in there and put the birds on top. I think the steam kept them from flying or somethin' but all I remember is his bird jumped on mine and made it drown! My bird's name was Tweety cause it was yellow :) lol.

A fish jumped out of the tank and when we reached behind the bookshelf we knocked over the x-mas sign (the kind you stick in your yard) . . . and bam! It was like a butcher knife! Good thing the fish was small.

A few weeks ago one of my turtles got out and got stuck between two aluminum screen door frames. He ended up cooking to death .

I have killed a few pets.....none on purpose but it just happens sometimes. I was kinda spoiled as a kid and we had several pets.

Guppies....OMG I had a 10gallon tank and I just HAD to have some fish so my parents got us 5-10 guppies....Like all kids I eventually lost interest and tossed some food in when I would remember. Eventually mom got involved and we had to do something....I'm not kidding when I say we had to have had over a thousand guppies in that tank!!!! We gave them to neighbor kids by the sandwich bag full and flushed.....A LOT... I switched to gold fish and killed them too.

Gerbils...stepped on one...threw one that bit me.
Guniea pigs....forgot to shut the door and the dog got it.
Bunnies......stepped on a baby bunny, and loved one to death trying to keep it warm in my jacket...Must have suffocated.
Parakeet...I didn't kill it but my brother threw a fork at the cage trying to get the bird to quit chirping so loud.....The fork went thru the bars and stabbed the bird in it's eye....total freak accident!

I have had much better luck with cats and dogs!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

when my parents first got married, my mother had a canary named Sunny. She loved Sunny. He'd sit on her finger, he'd sing. She used to clean out his cage with the central vacuum. He was used to it, he'd always just hop up on one of the perches and wait till she was done...

Till the day my mother sucked him up by mistake. Poor Mum. Poor Sunny.

i have NO clue why she ever thought the vacuum was a good idea...

Oh, yes, I have!

I had three hens. Two black-and-white speckled Plymouth Rocks, one Silkie Bantam. Their names...hehe...were...Lacy, Tracy, and Stacy. I know. So creative. Anyway! I had them for 4-H; I was going to compete with them and such. Sadly I couldn't register for that season in time, and, well, they didn't survive till the next...which is what I'm getting to, hehe!

I was pulling down hay in the barn and throwing it into a wheel barrow to spread in the pastures. I was, I wanna say, 12? Well, I'm throwing hay bales, when Lacy comes out from whoknowswhere...and I accidently throw a huge 50-pound hay bale at her. Lacy was the Silkie, you see...and she was like...3 pounds...so...yeah. She suffocated, I guess.

If I didn't feel bad already, I killed Tracy next. I'm pulling the wheelbarrow and squashed HER HEAD. Ew.

And then...Stacy... I believe she died of a concussion. Either that or she was suicidal. In the barn, next to all the hay bales, is this little drop down -- I don't know what it was supposed to be for, but it was never used. You have to climb down a ladder to get all the way down, and I was going into the little...cell. I figured Stacy wasn't stupid enough to come, right? Yeah. No. She's "balancing" on the ledge...and then...BAM! Hits the dust (ba dum dum).

So there is how...I killed my pet chickens, hehe.
