My girl cat was a puker, and puked on everything. But only sometimes, she would have spells where she was fine for a while, then puke on everything on sight. She was always real good about the litter box though, until the last few months of her life, then it was a free for all. But she could barely walk so we dealt with it.

I had an incident where a tech was calling in to find out how much a new satellite PVR would cost because the owner's cat had peed on the old one, which was purchased. When the tech had to advise the customer they cost 499 the poor guy was like, "I'm gonna kill that cat!"

The happy ending is that I gave him a free rental instead since we're getting rid of satellite anyway...

One of our cats peed on my sweetie's cell phone. In cat's defense, cat always peed on clothes that were left on the floor (kitty helped much more than my nagging did to convince my sweetie that dirty clothes should go into the laundry hamper) and his phone was in his pocket.

My sweetie rinsed the phone off and put it in a baggie full of rice, then called to see if his warranty covered cat pee. Sadly enough for him, it was considered to be "water damage". He got into the habit of putting his clothes in the hamper post haste.

Did he remember to empty the pockets? Or did his phone also get washed?

When I worked in the hospital records section one of the wards sent us a patient chart in a red "contaminated" bag. The ward wasn't supposed to do that; they were supposed to copy the record and send us the copy while properly disposing of the contaminated chart, as we didn't have facilities for handling or storing contaminated charts. My boss raised a fuss, and someone from that ward eventually copied the chart. They also had to disinfect the copier.

My sweetie is nothing but inventive. He has killed phones by:

Phone in pocket going through the washing machine.
Phone falling out of pants pocket into toilet.
Phone and holster plus belt slipping out of loops and falling into toilet.
Phone in vest pocket while riding motorcycle in a monsoon storm. (pocket didn't have drain holes and phones don't like to swim)
Phone falling out of pocket while getting into car unnoticed until I found the crushed remains in the driveway after he ran over it.
Phone being used as flashlight and dropped into bucket of oil.
Phone being used as a camera and getting dropped off boat. (there was another boat incident, I don't remember the details)

The list goes on, but my sweetie learns and never repeats his mistakes. Now, almost 25 years after his first cell phone, he's run out of ways to kill them. His last phone just died because it was almost 3 years old and that's what they do at that age.
