Cat Shoots Owner: "BATES TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A man cooking in his kitchen was shot after one of his cats knocked his 9mm handgun onto the floor, discharging the weapon, Michigan State Police said. Joseph Stanton, 29, of Bates Township in Iron County, was shot in his lower torso around 6 p.m. Tuesday, the state police post in Iron River reported. He was transported to Iron County Community Hospital."
Remind me never to leave a gun on the kitchen table, since my cats are famous for knocking things over. The most damage they have done so far is to attack a large vase of lilies, spilling the water and staining the small rug my Mom had hand-hooked back in the day. It's either the cats - or my husband. He will turn over almost every vase of flowers I put on the kitchen counter and blame it on the telephone cord or the TV antenna. Why can't he just admit he was careless?
