I just watched my brother eat a piece of steak, not knowing that fifteen minutes ago, my cat had clawed open the saran wrap, knocked it to the floor, and taken a bite.

He didn't know or you didn't know? Sloppy sentence there.
the busy bee has no time for sorrow.
How the fuck do you suppose the slab of meat got back on the plate, Amy? Sloppy reading comprehension.
Knowing might be worse or more questionable, meaning, Dog On A log in Korea doesn't mean Ball Park Franks but you go for it or you don't ...

If she meant that her brother didn't know, she would have said:
I just watched my brother unknowingly eat a piece of steak
Which makes her brother sexy like me
I just watched my brother unknowingly eat a piece of steak that my cat had, fifteen minutes prior, clawed free from the confines of its saran wrap prison, knocked to the floor, and began to nibble upon.

You're a retard.
You're all a bunch of nerds.
I feel like a few of my previous teachers would instruct me to split it up into two sentences, but I refuse.
I've come up with about 10 variations on the sentence in the last hour.
I would agree with your previous teachers. Sometimes simplifying is far more effective in conveying your ideas appropriately.
That is the correct way. Thank you, thank you.
Right -- bland, boring advice from teachers interested typically interested in the regurgitation of information. If I were to develop it into something more substantial, I'd probably stick with the original, confusing sentence and see how long the ambiguity could be teased out.
I watched my heedless brother eat my cats leftover dinner.
I allowed my oblivious brother to eat my cats leftover supper.
I almost uttered a warning, but realized I'd have to explain the slab's rewrapping and unsuspecting presentation -- besides, he'd already poured half of his freshly refilled prescription into my palm. It was a good, thick steak, charcoal grilled rare, and for all he knew, this was as usual a trade as any.
Plus, that 5 minute grilling m brother gave the steak probably killed most of the bacteria my cat was carrying on its claws from the litterbox.
Oh, no. The steak had already been cooked. I just sort of, blew air onto the side that had been on the dusty floor and cut away any incriminating tooth marks.
I guess you don't like your brother.
I'm sure your dragon breath took care of any nefarious microbes.
