angry_catMy friend told me a story of the time they had a mother cat with a litter of kittens in the house.

They came home and a stray dog walked through the door.

He saw the storm coming and hurried the dog out the door, but not before it brushed against his wife’s leg.

Momma cat came tearing out the door, took one sniff of the wife’s leg and attacked it like it was the hound of hell itself.

Wife is screaming. Kids are crying.

The cat from hell is biting and scratching, so Dad takes action.

He admits, “I just reacted on instinct. I grabbed the cat, but then it started going for me. It was not pretty so I drop kicked the kitty and it hit the wall.”

The cat, unfortunately experienced severe PTSD and was never quite right.

A friend adopted the poor creature, but it wasn’t happy and the Southern boy that he was said to my friend, “Somethings wrong with that cat. Somebody’s got at that cat.”

True enough.
