    Exclamation help urgently!!!!

    is it possible to use causative have in a sentence which has an inanimate subject; eg.

    the cooker had something greasy spillt over.

    It's possible, though your example doesn't work for me without 'it' at the end:
    Look, that car's had its windows smashed.
