Attack Cat?

The following story reminded me of the time our two cats cornered my sister-in-law's Chow. Dutchess the Chow is a pretty happy go lucky type of dog who is a bit hyper. When she comes over she bolts in the door and proceeds to run all over the house checking every room. Dutchess sometimes doesn't know when to back off when it comes to cats warning her to stay away.

We had two cats, both who have left our world, Sneaky and Monster. Well they got tired of her abrasive ways and decided to show her that cats rule and dogs drool. Dutchess came running in the house in her usual way and proceeded to our spare bedroom. Both Sneaky and Monster happened to be in there. We wondered all of a sudden where Dutchess was so I went looking for her. There she was backed into a corner with both cats stalking her like prey. They weren't going to let her out and it almost seemed like if I didn't walk in at that moment, they were going attack her! It was a sight, two small cats intimidating a good sized Chow.

This story is from Dogster's blog...

When a dog attacks a cat, it’s not news. But when a cat attacks a dog, it can be. Especially when it happens on a school playground with lots of children around. And especially when the dog is smaller than the cat.

It seems Rosie the Cat was hanging out at a local primary school’s yard in Cruden Bay, Scotland, as she loves to do. The children give her lots of attention, and she enjoys playing with them, according to the Evening Express.

Then a hapless Yorkshire terrier wandered into the cat’s “territory,” and Rosie apparently attacked him. Reports don’t say if the dog was hurt. It seems the dog was probably more frightened (and perhaps embarrassed).

Rosie’s owner, Angela Blanchard, had no idea her cat had been having a hissy fit at a canine when she got a personal visit from an officer from the Scottish SPCA. The officer told her about the incident, and said it’s under investigation.

Blanchard says Rosie does not, indeed, like dogs. “Rosie’s a lovely little family cat, she is very placid, but I suppose she could attack a dog,” she said.

She told the Evening Express it was “ridiculous” that someone reported her cat to authorities instead of coming right to her.

“What bothers me is that he now has to go away and file a report on this incident. The whole thing has been a waste of the Scottish SPCA’s time and money. They do an important and difficult job, and they could do without calls about a cat supposedly attacking a dog,” she said.
