Below are some unusual claim stories:

An IT problem– It is impossible to prevent pets from helping themselves to anything. Particularly, cats can be very curious as one cat owner from San Diego discovered when they left their laptop unattended. Unfortunately, the cat spilled a cup of coffee that the owner had beside the laptop all over the keyboard. Both the cat and the owner learned a valuable lesson.
Splash screen – In Kansas, a 2 year-old dog had his dream of a refreshing swimming experience feature on a television. Thinking that it was a real swimming pool, the dog jumped and ended up hitting the screen causing an estimated damage of about $250.
An unexpected and unwelcomed guest– cleaning ones teeth is normally a peaceful affair until you introduce a wasp into the act. Thankfully for the Kilmarnock resident whose mourning clean-up was rudely interrupted, the only damage caused was to his sink after he knocked over a glass which damaged it while trying to chase the wasp away.
A shoe in – Children are another recipe for disaster at home as a Rochester resident discovered. One of the little darlings broke the television screen after launching a shoe at his sibling.
Something’s fishy– Another weird claim came from a man who was taking part in a competitive billiards-type of game. No sooner had he made a wild shot did the ball soar off the table and hit an expensive fish tank. All the fish were rescued and his claim paid.
