Vicious Attack Cat

November 6

Looking at our cat Jimmy D, you’d never guess he can intimidate an entire animal clinic’s full of grown humans. His sweet countenance is matched by a placid nature. But only at home.

I recently had to drop the cat off at the vet’s. I usually make an appointment and am with him every minute. It couldn’t be helped this time. As much as I hated to do it, he had to be dropped off and left. Due to prior experience, his carrying cage comes with bright orange stickers that say “WILL BITE”. Not might bite, could bite, or is thinking about biting. Will Bite. I suppose they’re busy printing up additional stickers for him that say “WILL SCRATCH”, “WILL FOAM AT THE MOUTH” and “WILL HISS AND GROWL ALL DAY”.

All I can say is, you know its bad when a room full of technicians and vets, who work on wild and feral cats quite frequently, refuse to even remove ours from his cage. They examined him as best they could by peering through his carrier door and deducing his weight. When they called for me to go get him, they sounded as if they really wanted peace restored to their animal kingdom. Good thing his health is good overall.

    I am cracking up over here! Who would have guessed your cute little kitty was so vicious? I love the crazed look in his eye in this picture! Too funny!

    He is too cute! Yes, I see the dangerous glint to his steel-hardened criminal eyes.

    Jimmy was thrilled about your comment, Truffle. He’s been praciticing that look in the mirror for months.

    My Perry Penelope was like that with her former owner – she’d been banned from three veterinary practices. Perry was “teased” a lot with her former owner – but not with us and between that and her advancing age she mellowed considerably. Ginger tabbies are the best – treat with love and respect and the returns and enormous…

    I’m not saying you treat Jimmy poorly – just recounting my own experience.

    LOL! Poor Jimmy D. I’ll bet he’s just misunderstood. Maybe you should change that sticker to “Will Maul”? Nothing confusing about that.
