Seeing as it's the "Silly Season" I thought 'Catters might appreciate this gem from the "Gaurdian" Clikc E're (as it's the Grauniad!!)

This calls for a song, or poem, I think.

Hee Hee.
My cat once attacked the exterminator.
My apartment in Chicago was sprayed once a month whether it needed it or not. They kept keys to the place and did the job while most people were at work.
I came home to find the man running down the stairs in terror with his face all scratched. He claims the cat was waiting on the refrigerator for him when he went into the kitchen, leapt at his face, she did and caused serious injury. But he never filed a complaint. I suspect that he sprayed her to get her out of the way and she ran to the kitchen to hide. When he followed, she defended herself. Munchkin was a nasty girl known as Munch. Not my nastiest kitty - Fred holds that position after being barred from two different veterinary offices.
I like a cat with spirit.

LOL, I knew a cat like that once.

She (a vicious female Siamese) lived in a remote rural area where mail delivery came by car, and she would lie in wait behind a large spirea bush. The mail carrier learned quickly to wear a heavy glove to stuff the mail into the box, as "Sweetie" would leap out and attach herself to his wrist. The nasty thing also attacked each and every visitor to the home. Her owners lived in fear of her, but she had saved the life of their young daughter, and so was revered. She never once attacked that child, but unmercifully clawed the parents and older daughter. I still have an ugly scar on my forearm where she attacked as I tried to give the younger child a soft drink.

Yes, one of our neighbours had a cat that was very hostile. Anyone ever read the comic "Get Fuzzy"? It's about such a cat. Siamese can be particulary troublesome in this way...they are sometimes very territorial.

Okay, SINS you asked ...

The cat slept on the younger daughter's bed. As in many homes, there was no heat in the house at night in the winter, so this particular family opted for electric blankets.

The cat slept on the blanket. Anyone familiar with pets and electric blankets knows this isn't a good idea. Yep, the cat was coiled as a dead weight on the rumpled blanket. Smolder, smolder. Smoke! The cat woke up (maybe because a fire was starting under it), slapped the youngster on the face (claws in) until she woke up, then screamed as only a Siamese can, and woke the rest of the house. The cat chased her roommate to the front door and forced her outside, continuing to wail. The mother herded the older child outside while the father located the source of the smoke, unplugged the blanket and then doused the now-flaming bedding with water.

The blanket, and the mattress were destroyed, and there was much smoke damage to the room; but the child, and the rest of the family, was safe. The little girl was quite nauseated from the smoke and fumes, but lived to tell the tale. The cat, by the way, lived to a ripe old age, as mean as ever, but also still revered.

Typical Siamese...graceful, psychotic, determined, and deadly. They are very interesting cats, generally speaking.

Gads. There's no way I would keep a cat that couldn't be trusted to give warning before attacking. My brother and his wife have a Russian Blue that is a serious mouser/birder/lizarder- she supports herself, but comes into the house daily to get a commercial fix.

This cat is called Minni, the Grouch. She goes around growling to herself at every thing and event of which she disapproves and of which there are many, from having to go through the pet door to the glimpse of another animal to someone ensconced in her favorite chair.

I will no longer touch her. I had never been bitten by any cat and I have petted and cuddled many a one. One day when I was visiting the Grouch came to me purring and winding herself around my arm. So I petted her. At a certain point she had had enough contact and without ado, she turned her head and sank her teeth into the side of my thumb. When I visit them now and she asks for attention, I tell her: Nope. You blew it. Go somewhere else.

Pluck, my foot.

When I was living in Ipswich, a RAF friend up the close had a marmalade cat the size of a peach basket that was a bit territorial.

One day I was up in his yard, with my sheltie when he advised me to move the dog. "Bobby's about to attack your dog.", and sure enough, it had gathered itself about to spring at the unsuspecting dog. The dog was still young, so it probably wouldn't have been much of a contest as the cat surely outweighed him by about 5 pounds.

    Territorial cats in Suffolk, I guess.

And there was me thinking it was about Max the titloving cat.... although, come to think of it, he's about as killer as your average rabbit (Monty Python fans need not comment... I said AVERAGE!), but he was on the loose.

We lost him a couple of days ago. Bratling and I canvassed the area on Friday, when we heard a report of him hiding in a front garden, fending off all comers with spits, growls and hisses. Apparently, our tit loving kitty, mild as milk and twice as wet, was fending off all offers of assistance, with violent action. We found him about 30 mins later, by sheer dint of knocking on every door down the street. Everyone who answered had seen him, and all testified to his ferocity. When we got to the last house in the row, the owner said 'oh yes, she's (sic) out the back and won't let us near her!' I called and out he trotted, good as gold, into my arms and home, where he's not moved off the sofa or our bed for more than 20 minutes at a time, and then only for food and potty breaks!

And Morty - I must admit, when I found out where the incidents were happening, I too, thought of Loki.....

Can fix a cat with a gun. Seen them do too much damage to native wildlife (most of which never had to develop defences against serious predators before European settlement here).

Had a cat once (well I had him for 15 years - from when I was 5) and he hated most men except for my dad. Any men (including a few boyfriends later on in the mogs life) were open prey, and he'd chase them, attack them, launch stealth attacks on them and generally be very anti man - women he loved, he'd fuss up to women and sit on their laps all kitten like and harmless....

Not a cat story, but a few years ago, somewhere in East Anglia, an Eagle Owl made itself quite well known for attacking, Postmen, Traffic Wardens, Rottweilers and Dobermans. The bird used to fly down and head-butt the humans, the dogs it used to attack by clawing their backs.

It turned out that the bird, which had escaped from an aviary, used to taunted by Security Guards who used to patrol the place with dogs each night. When the Owl escaped it found it could exact revenge on what it perceived to be its former tormentors.

The Owl was finally safely netted and placed somewhere else.

On cat attacks, My eldest daughter had a pet rabbit. The rabbit was fully house trained and just used to wander about the place. It never went out the front door of the house but had free range of the garden at the back of the house. One morning it was sitting on the lawn, quite unconcerned as one of the neighbourhood cats stalked it. I went to scare the cat off, but my wife stopped me, telling me to just to watch. The cat eventually made its move and this large doe rabbit just lifted itself on its front paws and lashed out with its hind legs. The strike was timed to perfection, the cat must have been flung at least eighteen feet into a holly bush - the cat didn't stay round for more. The rabbit is no more, but the local cats who were her contemporaries to this day only cross the garden on top of the wall at the foot of the garden.

Just a note though! Some cats will and can attack rabbits. My cat who still lives with my parents (they grew too fond of him and I lost custody when I moved) is a seasoned hunter and regularly brings home rabbits. So, they can do it - much to our disgust, but they do live in the country and there's loads of the things around us.

Ooo Alison...

You've just reminded me of a friends tortoise who used to go mad if you were wearing white socks or white shoes. It would chase (ok, toroises version of chase) you and try and nip your toes or ankle. Either that or it would sneak up on you when you were sat at the kitchen table eating, and suddenly you'd feel a nip!

Very amusing but psycotic torty!

Hi Ella,

Noddy was a bloody big rabbit and a whale of a character.

Quite early on she realised that everybody in the house had their own room, so Noddy commandeered the lounge. It enjoyed watching television but hated anybody changing channels. She would lay stretched out on the sofa and if you picked up the remote control to switch over channels, Noddy would do a double take at the screen, look accusingly at you, look back at the television, look at the remote control, then bat it across the room - it used to be hilarious.

My friends Fred and Frannie built a box in front of their mail slot, to keep the letters from going all over the floor. Into that box went Sam the Siamese. When the letter carrier came, Sam went into action, swatting through the slot, and singing as only a Siamese can. It was a couple of weeks before Fred and Frannie found out why they weren't getting any mail. Then they put a lid on the box.
The letter carrier at our house used to smack our standard poodle on the nose with a bunch of letters. Like most big poodles, ours was excessively friendly, unless a letter carrier came up on the porch. It was the only time he became aggessive.
