Common Questions: Hungry Cats

Unexpected things happen all the time and life can get complicated pretty quickly.  Luckily, we’re here to answer questions about common legal and financial situations you may find yourself in.

Q. A neighbor’s cat wandered onto my property and ate our bunny.  Can I sue my neighbor?

A.  Sure you can and they would have to pay you.   Call them and ask for their insurance company.  Most homeowners insurance covers things like this.  If it doesn’t, and they do not pay you, sue them.  Probably small claims would handle this unless it was a “special” prize bunny, and then if it was, the neighbor might say you should have had the bunny in your office or protected.    If your bunny was loose, you might be partially or even wholly to blame.
