To just "knock over" a pot of water is pretty hard. Unless you swung your hand under the handle and then lifted up with 10 or so pounds of force, it would have just sloshed around and slid a little bit, because stove rings are made to be anti-skid. I made an account just to point out the bs.
If you don't hold the handle of the pot you're stirring on my stove, it would be very easy to slide the whole thing right to the floor. It also depends on what kind of pot you're boiling water in. If it's a big, tall pot with the little handles, sure, it's a little harder to knock over, but I don't always need to boil a massive amount water. Many times, I'll use one of my smaller pots which has a long handle. I, personally, am a HUGE stickler for making sure ANYONE using a pot like that never ever leaves the handle sticking out where it could get caught on someone's sleeve or anything else because of the potential to be pulled right off the stove. I also have a burner that isn't completely flat, so it's already a little tilted in the right direction to slide off. We don't all have perfect stoves.
I'd only say it's not OP's fault if OP was using the pepper for that meal, specifically had already used some so it had been opened & was planning to use more which is why it hadn't been closed properly. Otherwise YDI because cats tend to knock things over & cleaning up spilled spices from the stovetop/counter/floor isn't fun. Plus then you need to buy more.
Sounds like a cat all right.
