Cats use fax as toilet, spark Japan house fire
Fri Jun 10, 2005 06:55 AM ET

TOKYO (Reuters) - Two kittens picked the wrong place to relieve themselves when they urinated on a fax machine, sparking a fire that extensively damaged their Japanese owner's house.
Investigators in the western city of Kobe have concluded that the fire in January was caused by a spark generated when the urine soaked the machine's electrical printing mechanism.

The fire damaged the kitchen and living room before it was put out by the house's owner, who was treated for mild smoke inhalation, said Masahito Oyabu, a fireman at the Nagata fire station in central Kobe.

The kittens quickly ran to safety, he added.

"If you have a cat, or a dog for that matter, be careful where they urinate," Oyabu said. "Especially keep them away from electrical appliances and wires."

That's a strange place to pee. How did they manage to actually pee on the fax machine?

We had a cat that would drink from this fountain on our fireplace and piss in the bathroom sink.

But a fax machine??....that's just random as hell. :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

LOL, I read about this in the local newspaper  :D  I'm lucky I don't have pets with all the electrical gadgets in my room.  Not to mention I'm not very fond of cats anyway.

[edit] a quick Goole search brings up the article:

Hmm...I wonder if that cat went to jail. . . MUAHAAHHAHA

I wish I could be careful where my friend's cat pees.  That thing pees E-V-E-R-Y-WHERE and throws up everywhere.  Which I don't think is a good thing.
