    i would say the worst thing is that just before i was meant to be handing a book back to my school library , the dog ripped off the front cover , quite embarrassing , also the dog peed on my brothers bed when he got scared about heavy rain.

    My cat often brings in mice, frogs or worms and puts them on my pillow but the worst was when he put a slug on my mouth while I was asleep (I woke pretty sharpish!) I guess he was complaining about my snoring.

    My cat Roxy, likes to jump on top of the bedroom door and cry until we get a chair to get her down. She's recently realised she can jump onto the bed from the top of the door without hurting herself. It's actually quite funny when she bombs from 7 foot up onto my sleeping Mrs

    My Benji was a real terror and very partial to a good chew.The first week should have run up the warning flags but probably like yourself I was tolerant of the new family addition.Two pairs of shoes,a sofa and the rabbit cage,the rabbit I think must have made a bolt for freedom over the back garden wall.
    But he was a lovable affectionate soul and sort of grew on me.
    However one day I found him in the garden with the fence between next door destroyed and the bloke was'nt too happy.It seemed his two pitbulls were nowhere to be found,I think they must have made a bolt for freedom over the back garden wall.
    Then came the evening of the burglary.I woke on hearing a commotion and on running downstairs found Benji in the kitchen amid an awful mess,a crowbar,a single trainer but no sign of any intruder.The Police arrived with a German Shepherd Police dog.

    As I talked to the officer by the front door he sent the dog for a hunt around the house in case the burglar was hiding indoors.The dog started barking and the officer ran into the kitchen then out again at speed straight through the open front door.
    Never did find any trace of the burglar or for that matter the German Shepherd.I think they both made a bolt for freedom over the back garden wall.
    Anyway shortly after I was offered an overseas work contract and did'nt think it fair to leave Benji with a pet sitter.Especially as the last one had left without notice or even made contact to give an explanation,might as well have disappeared into thin air.
    So I found Benji a new home and he seems quite happy at Whipsnade zoo with the other crocodiles.

    I have two Beagles so the list of candidates for "worst thing" is extensive, but the absolute worst thing? My little boy Beagle has a poop eating habit, and every now and then he vomits up the partially digested contents of his stomach - usually onto our bedroom carpet. The stench is beyond belief, and this is coming from someone whose nasal sensitivity has been dulled by years of exposure to Beagle farts and bad breath.

    Just last night I got home from work to find our middle cat making her way across the cupboard in the lounge gently pushing all the cuddly toys on top, off onto the floor.

    She then settled down to lie on a cushion. Then realising I was watching, flicked a koala toy off the shelf, whilst looking at me with a "and?!?" look on her face.

    She looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth but is the naughtiest of our three cats by far.

    Our late pet cat once presented me with worms and I was terribly afraid of them. No one was around but me so I was in a hurry to bring the worms outside the house while trying my best not to look at them.

    My cat peed on my shoes. I didn't know about that and tried to wear them in the morning. You can imagine how "happy" I was...

    Labrador mayhem!
    Our lab dug up a foxs cache of food and ran up and down a public footpath shaking a huge, bloody rabbit about much to the horror of lots a parents and children out for a nice Sunday bike ride! She refused to come back and a think my cries of It was already dead when she found it! fell on rather stunned deaf ears.

    Not my cat, she belonged to one of my housemates at the time, about 15 years ago.

    I was in the kitchen chopping up chicken to make a curry, at the time the cat was nowhere to be seen. In the 10 seconds or so it took to me turn away, walk over to the hob, light it and put oil in the pan, the cat had appeared from nowhere, jumped up on to the worktop and was gulping down the raw chicken. When I shouted at her she ran off, but not before grabbing the biggest remaining chunk to take with her.

    My Mr Dexter is a mischevious minx, he has destroyed my phones (landline & mobile), shoes & slipper many victims, chewed my watch strap & back kicked my laptop off bed but thankfully it escaped damage.

    I don't know if she did it intentionally but there was one time when we were walking, she jumped (or fell) and swam in a sewage filled with black stuff who knows what's in there. She was so smelly and so filthy. Our beagle is tricolor but after that incident, she was just black. Pure black. It took us days to get rid of the smell.

    Ive had my cat nearly two years and hes gone missing about a dozen times. I had to get a collar with our phone number on. Now I worry that hes gone missing if he fails to come home when expected, and I sometimes worry that hes dead and Ill never see him again. We havent dared stay away overnight since we got him, because he always looks for us when he comes in, and I worry that if he thinks weve gone hell go and find a new home (hes already testing his options around the neighbourhood). So I live in a constant state of anxiety.
    Thats worse than the live mouse he dropped on my lap,or the dead mouse on the sofa!

    One of my cats (the boy one, and the constant source of trouble) dragged a sewing needle out of the pin cushion and ate it (thankfully spotted) - a rush to the emergency vets for removal before it perforated him internally. But of course, he did this two days before we were due to go away on holiday - so cancelled flights and cat-sitter also factored in
    In a better financial position than ever before (thank you MSE!). Moved back to Scotland and now trying to keep debt-free!

    I hope your cat is all right now. My cat recently ate clay. My daughter and her friend were playing and dropped the clay on the floor. The cat felt was very bad, we did not immediately understand why until we found the cause. But it is good that we quickly turned him to veterinary and cleaned his stomach.

    The worst thing my pet has done
    My first pet was a male tabby cat that ruled the roost back in the 80s. He was into everything, climbing ladders, catching all sorts, once he caught a creature that he dropped in the garage, it was screaming in terror, I nervously put my hand in to a dark corner and rescued.... a baby rabbit, which happily hopped up the road, unharmed. He was a fantastic pet but one of the worst things he did was stealing the neighbours cooked chicken and somehow getting it over a 6 foot fence. They were not pleased and we never found the chicken!

    Love these stories especially the chicken over the fence!

    Once caught one of our cats dragging a string of sausages in through the cat flap. To this day I know not which of our neighbours found their BBQ had been somewhat compromised .

    One of mum and dad's older moggies was a terror for pinching. She hoicked a lamb chop out of the frying pan while it was still cooking, and licked all of the cream out of a cream merangue. Still don't know how she managed to do that without disturbing the merangue shells.
