Blame the cat.

Investigators believe a Washington-state house fire was started by a cat who likes to sleep on the toaster oven.

Lois Lund tells The Peninsula Daily News she doesn't hold a grudge against Osiris.

She says he likes to snooze on the toaster to get away from the dog.

Lund thinks her cat probably stepped on the lever, turning on the toaster oven.

She was able to put out the fire with a garden hose.

No one was hurt, including the cat.
