From the point of view of the cat owner

Car damage, caused by a cat Car damage, caused by a cat

In the summer of 2009, between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm I was at home working on my bicycle on the balcony. While working on the bike I had put all the screws, some parts of the ball bearings and other tools on the top of a cabinet.

Unfortunately, I did not notice when my tomcat approached. My tomcat, who weighs 7 kg, jumped onto the cabinet for reasons unknown to me.
This caused some screws and the screwdriver to fall off the balcony (toward the street). Unfortunately, at just this moment a car drove by.
