My cat, Marcela, gave birth to kittens – Huey, Dewey, Louie, Donald and Daisy.

This event led directly to my car accident on the 4th of December.

I was running late due to several factors: My alarm didn’t go off as Marcela had knocked the clock off the bedside table; the boiler had packed in so I had to boil water to wash; Marcela had mistaken my clothes for her litter tray – the only clean shirt I could find was a horse-themed one.

I grabbed my coat and ran to the car. I slipped on the icy driveway, but carried on, limping to my car.

I managed to start the car after several attempts. As I did so, Daisy jumped from my coat pocket and clawed at my face. I panicked, hitting the accelerator instead of the brake. The car, sliding on ice, ran over my front lawn and collided with my house.

I have sent an identical claim to my house insurance company – Brick-A-Break Insurance.

  1. Based on this and the previous story on the InLinkz page, cats are real jerks. I promise, my cat won’t cause a car accident. In fact, there won’t even be one (I wrote my tale before reading any of the others). 😉
