Owner suspects her cat set fire to her home. True? — 10 Comments

  1. This screams out to me INSURANCE SCAM.
    Why would anyone let a cat sleep by a cooker which could be so easily turned on?

  3. PS. I think that an experienced investigator would have found that the lady’s explanation did not hold up, but such a small incident was not worth investigating.

  4. I had a similar experience when I was living in Costa Rica, only that my electric stove did not have that safety feature of having to press-in the control knob before it could be turned on. My cat Eccles did turn it on but of course I had nothing inflammable near or on the ring.

  5. Sounds like a last ditch desperate drive for an insurance claim. Or something. I have never seen a cooker you can just switch on without there being some kind of child proof or otherwise safety mechanism on the knobs. It seems almost impossible that her cat could have pulled this amazing feat off.

      I am pleased that you think like me. The story just seems contrived and I would be surprised if the insurer pays but perhaps they have to now because the fire department have said it was accidental.
