It was an accident

    I accidently hurt my Mittens.

    I was making the bed the other day and was trying to keep Mittens out of the room. I opened the door to get something and Mittens was right there and started to dart through the door.

    I hurriedly tried to close the door before she could get in and accidently squished her in the middle since she was halfway through. She is so quick. I felt so bad. She ran away but came when I called and she seemed okay. I gave her extra love and pettings.

    Poor Mittens. I'm keeping her indoors to protect her from being harmed and what do I do. Squish her.

    Have you accidently hurt any of your kitties?

    I've done that and felt like the biggest shat ever. Worse I've done is run the wheels on my computer chair over my Missy's paw. Oh I felt so horrible!!! And she made me pay for that for days.
    The scary thing for me is the possibility of shutting the cat's tail into the door near the casing/hinges. I know someone who did that and the cat ended up losing part of its tail. Each and every time I always always look to make sure there are no cats around when I shut the door.

    Yep, I've closed the pantry door on Rene's tail. :oops: Luckily she was fine. I've also locked Rene in the basement, Milo in the garage countless times. :oops: I've also closed the sunroom door on Vene and Milo gazillion times. :oops: I'm lucky the cats are not plotting something against me then again there's the placed hacked up furballs in the rugs, the butt scoots all over the floors and carpets, the pukes that are in mystery places. :shock: Maybe it's payback. :shock: :mrgreen:

    I've got gracie locked in the attic, and I shut the screen door on my old cat cinnamon's foot, while I was trying not to let her inside. She seemed okay, but I was so afraid I had broken it!

    Not yet and I hate to even post this for fear of it happening. My two play a very dangerous game. They like to paw each other through the hinged side of an open door, especially the bathroom door. They love the spare bathroom. One gets behind the door where we can't see and the other in the hall. We are very careful to make sure there is no fur person or paw there when we close the door but I just know one of us or company is going to catch a paw one day.

    I closed Moe in the door (the big door going to the outside) last week. I felt bad, but she was fine!

    A year ago, I accidently flicked garlic into Artemis' eye. Must have stung like crazy! His eye watered for a little while, but he forgave me after a couple of treats!

    I've nearly decapitated Emily several times because she likes to zip through doors as they're being closed. Doesn't seem to phase her, though.

    Dad once closed Ten up in the foot rest of the love seat. It was kind of funny because she just had a leg and her tail hanging out & twitching. She was fine though.

    And I kick Romeo fairly often, but I stopped feeling really bad about it because he tries to trip me and make me fall down the stairs nearly every day.

    I have. I closed Hoggles talk in the door one time, he wouldn't come near me for the rest of the day. I was so worried I had broke his tail but he was okay. I also closed Chieve's paw in a draw but he was okay too. I know what you mean though, I felt horrible about it.

    Thanks for sharing your stories. I'm glad I'm not the only one who's had accidents with kitties. Sounds like all our cats are very forgiving. :)

    Lol, funny stories :lol: I'm glad both furry and non-furry seem to get out of these situations without permanent damage :wink:

    Kyrre doesn't dart the doors, but he has started to hunt my feet since he became an indoor cat... It's just a matter of time before I step on him :|

    I was at the vet clinic yesterday and a lady came in with her dog (just for shots, I think). As they were coming through the door, it closed on the very tip of the dogs tail and degloved the last 2" - 3" of it. :shock: It was splattering blood all over that side of the waiting room and the lady felt absolutely horrible.

    That's what I said. If it's going to happen, that's the best place for it to happen.

    It was during the walk-in time which is first come, first serve and the average wait is around 1 - 2 hours (unless you got there way early), but they got bumped to the front of the line which was totally understandable.

    Nice to be bumped to the front of the line but an unfortunate way for it to happen.

    Last week, my 3 month old kitten, Riley climbed into the refrigerator when I was getting out a soda. I closed the door, and a few seconds later, I heard some crying. It startled me, and one of my other cats Smokey. He stood at the door,staring at it. I immeadiately opened the door, and poor Riley ran out. I felt so bad. Needless to say, I watch very closely when I open the frig. door, and I'll tell you what, since that day, he has not gone near that door![/code]

    I often leave the back door open so the kitties can look out of the glass door. I was leaving in a ahrry so I closed and locked the door. My poor cat Oscar was in between the 2 doors. He stayed that way for over an hour while I was out. When I got home I hear this meowing. Poor kitty. I felt terrible.
