Pets Vs. Rising Bread

December 27, 2010 - 10:49am -- Slider

I have had an unanticipated rising complication; about 2 hours into the final rise, my lovely cat stepped on my (covered) dough in the banneton.

There is a big dent in the middle of it now. Has anyone ever had this or similar problem where the rising dough was flattened? Any pointers or advice on whether it will bake properly, if i let it rise another couple hours maybe?
