1. Three people have unfriended me

I think the cat was reacting to noise and then a stranger, good watch cat; did they name him Timex?

Creepy family, spying on the sitter.

3. YIKES!

I've heard of cats attacking humans but I didn't think they'd be quite that violent.

11. That's why God invented gin.

So the rest of us could 'appreciate' rhythm sections.

5. Next door neighbor while in college,,

was a couple with a cat named Kitty. The girl said Kitty was her protector, her beau agreed and said watch this. He began to hold onto the girl while she cried out HELP ME KITTY! HELP ME KITTY! The cat, under the bed in the next room, came running into livingroom, jumped on the sofa, back all arched up, taile straight up and fluffed out, and began swatting at the beau!
Funny! But to be afraid of a cat? never.

13. You would say otherwise if you ever has the pleasure to meet my late mom's cat.

25 pounds and the vet still said he really needed to a little more weight on him. That cat sharpened his claws one the stone back porch, front and back. Those claws were lethal!
Mom didn't want to have them remove since at that time West Joplin had some mean rats popping up at the time.


As for the weight, the grasshoppers kept it off. No matter what Mom feed him. That cat LOVED grasshoppers.

6. I've never seen a cat act that like before.

That would be a little bit scary.

7. When my wife moved in, one of the cats wouldn't let her in the living room

The same cat got out of the house and decided the neighbour wasn't allowed in his house. I had to go rescue him.

16. I heard David Lazarus on NPR today, talking about the hospital bill for his cat bite

Here's David Lazarus' (Business columnist, L.A. Times) introduction to his original article:

"First, let me explain why you haven't seen my column for a week or so. There will be some who will say I grabbed my cat after he slipped out of the house, and the darn thing bit my hand, causing a painful infection that penetrated deep into my tendons and ligaments.
That strikes me as kind of lame. So I'll say that I broke up a knife fight."

There was a thread about the huge bill on DU about it last week-
