10 Ways Yo Kill Your Pet And Get Away With It

by | 20th, October 2008

WANT to know how to kill your pet? A survey by a pet insurance company says:

PlayStations and iPods have emerged as greater threats to the nation’s pets than traditional dangers found in the home such as tumble driers, washing machines and electric cables.

Which might mean that if you own an iPod, PlayStation or some other electronic device, your premiums might be higher. What are the odds on an insurance company discovering that, eh?

The Guardian notes:

According to the survey, iPods are most likely to cause injury to cats; rabbits are particularly at risk from Sony PlayStations; while the biggest dangers to guinea pigs come from DVD players and remote controls.

Readers are free to draw their own conclusions as to why a rabbit should be fatally attracted to a games machine, or why a guinea pig would be left alone to work the DVD player.
