Petrified postmen ordered to stay away from Snowball the cat
Metro [UK] ^ | 4th April, 2012 | Mark Molloy

Posted on 04/10/2012 8:47:31 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

Frightened postal workers have been banned from delivering letters to one notoriously hazardous address after being repeatedly 'attacked' by a three-year-old cat called Snowball.

-snip-

Following a thorough investigation the Royal Mail has stopped its workers from delivering mail to the address after labelling the black and white moggy a 'health and safety risk'.

I’d just keep my fingers out of the blessed slot.

If I was a postman and a cat decided to attack me through the mail slot in the door I’d just grab that cat’s leg and pull as hard as I could. I promise you that cat would never pull that crap again! Another solution would be to spray a bit of pepper spray through the slot right in the face of the cat.

Here, kitty kitty kitty... Look what Mr. Postman has for you today you little Niedermeyer!

Nothing worse than a pussy with teeth and claws.

That’s why Martian women are having a hard time dating on earth.

So cute!

How can this kitty seriously hurt someone sticking her claws through the mail slot? She could get a nice swipe, but “serious”? Come on. Our Russian Olive tree is at least as dangerous when mowing the lawn.

Yep. Besides having commercial cook elephant hide hands, I have opposable thumbs and a brain larger than a friggin walnut. How hard is it?

This shows how totally wimpy the British have become. No wonder the muslims are over running their country.

I hear ya. Just stick the mail in and keep your fingers clear. This isn’t quantum mechanics.

What else would be funny is when that cat leg shoots out of the mail slot for the attack just grab it and wrap it up in duct tape!

The cat’s owner will be wondering just how that could have happened!

Maybe, maybe not. One of mine showed up one morning wearing a paper party hat with the little elastic chinstrap thing, and I never asked a question.

My catz never leave the house.

Sometimes questions are best left unasked.

Good idea! A kitty treat with the mail will go a long way towards making friends.

Oh, for Heaven's sake! The kitteh just wants to play, and how a big, bad mailman can't deal with it is beyond me. God save England if
they're afraid of small house pets.

Miss Hissy Slashy loves to bat at stuff under doors. She sits in front of the pantry door every morning until I have time to let her into it.
She rushes inside, and I close the door and wiggle toys in the gap under it. She starts batting and purring up a storm. She just loves it.

And I love her.

Every so often a piece of furniture in my house will grow a set of kitty legs as I walk by. Somehow I survive.

Totally agree with you. No one who’s owned a cat gets the vapors about a few scratches and bites. It’s all in the cat way of going about things. What wimps.

REAL NICE. Would you guys do that to a bully kid? Pull his leg hard and slap the crap out of him? I can’t stand Bullies—anyone that can hurt an animal is a lowlife bully......immaturity is rampant.

When Snowball brings out the claws out for the attack the best thing to do is attack back and give that little Niedermeyer a taste of his own medicine! You’d be surprised the damage a domesticated cat can do. And if it’s a bobcat or a cougar? Even more!

If a bully attacked me? I’d certainly fight back and take the doofus down.

What happened when Trayvon attacked Mr. Zimmerman? Zimmerman fought back and won!

Ummm. I have two catz. They don't use their claws. Ever. They learned that not from sweet reason, but from corporeal correction. Use a claw, get a slap. Not liking getting slapped, they stopped using their claws on me.

It's called training. I love them and they love me. It's based on mutual respect reinforced with firm boundries.

NO...that’s cruelty. You don’t need to HIT anything you big bully..... All you have to do is yell...and not even that loud. Never play with your cats using your bare hands either...always have a toy in your hand. I’m willing to bet your cats avoid you whenever possible.

My catz are up my nose every time I sit down. They visit me when I'm in the bath. They sleep with and on me.

I'll handle my catz as I see fit. They are well cared for, and well behaved.
