Great stories everyone! I love the canary and the vacuum

Several, but before you think I'm some kind of monster Every animal I have killed was done becuase it was sick or injuried and couldn't be helped.

two were very sick dogs that being put down was an act of mercy. another dog was hit by a truck and I had to make sure she didn't suffer

several cats all eithier stepped or hit be ATV's (Yes, those cats crawled out under my foot. and my foot was on it before I knew what happen)

I ain't counting strays that were brothering our cattle, that was defending our living. .

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I almost killed one of my cats several years ago...luckily he survived!
My husband and I were leaving for the weekend at the beach. I always made sure the litter box was clean and our two cats had plenty of food and water, more than enough as a matter of fact. They had each other for company and usually did well during the occasional weekend alone. As I was packing our clothes into a suitcase, one of my cats made it into the walk-in closet and was hiding so that when I closed the closet door I didn't see him in there. When we returned two days later, I automatically knew that something was wrong when he wasn't there to greet me at the door along with our other cat. I searched all over until I finally heard his weak meows from the closet! He was considerably thinner, not to mention the carpet in the closet was shredded with his attempts at escape and smelled (eww). I felt so badly I cried all night. He ate great for several weeks after that incident and I ALWAYS checked the closet before a vacation.

My dads goldfish was killed when he asked my nanna to take care of it. Well lets just say she was cooking...and this fish well liked the look of the frying pan! So the fish ended up being fried to death...

Aww, so sad but then I still had a giggle at some of the silly things.

My mum accidentally trod on our budgie who was 7 years old, he loved walking on the floor and eating crumbs that us kids would drop and mum didn't see him under the table and he ran out right under her foot :(. Before that he survived a few trips down the vacuum cleaner hose, silly bird!

I haven't killed any, but my family sure has.

My mom turned a fan on our turtle Tippy because she thought he'd be hot when we left for the weekend.

We started the car up when a cat was laying under the hood (never understood why they lay up in there) we got her back to health almost but she was an old cat and ended up not making it.

I accidently killed a hamster when I was little. Her name was Goldy *sob* and she used to run around in one of those little plastic ball things. Well, one day I thought I would be really nice to Goldy and clean out her ball.....with a Lysol solution.... Apparently those little holes don't provide enough ventilation to air out the Lysol. I felt terrible, especially considering Goldy had survived getting stuck in my mom's car engine and several other mishaps.

I HATE it when animals die because of a person's stupidity. Parents should keep their kids away from the pets when they are not around.

A lot of these are HILARIOUS! But sadd. :'(
I have a few stories about other people. . not about myself (Yet.)
When I was in Virginia, the women who runs the farm I stayed on was driving a bunch of us back in the van and ran over a toad. The next day, I was walking down the driveway to the mailbox to get the mail, and discovered there were toad guts all along the driveway. O_o
A guy I know shut his garage door on his cat! GAH! The cat lived, though.. amazingly.
