Crazy Cat Terrorizes Connecticut Town (actual title)

Crazy Cat Terrorizes Connecticut Town

FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Residents of the neighborhood of Sunset Circle say they have been terrorized by a crazy cat named Lewis. Lewis for his part has been uniquely cited, personally issued a restraining order by the town's animal control officer.

"He looks like Felix the Cat and has six toes on each foot, each with a long claw," Janet Kettman, a neighbor said Monday. "They are formidable weapons."

The neighbors said those weapons, along with catlike stealth, have allowed Lewis to attack at least a half dozen people and ambush the Avon lady as she was getting out of her car.

Some of those who were bitten and scratched ended up seeking treatment at area hospitals.

Animal Control Officer Rachel Solveira placed a restraining order on him. It was the first time such an action was taken against a cat in Fairfield.

In effect, Lewis is under house arrest, forbidden to leave his home.

Solveira also arrested the cat's owner, Ruth Cisero, charging her with failing to comply with the restraining order and reckless endangerment.

Yep, sounds like your standard polydactl (six-toed) feline.

What a pussy(And I'm not talking about the cat)


Isn't there a SINGLE man in the town with a bag and a brick and a body of water deep enough to drown one crazed cat?

I seen the report at the end of On The Record with Greta Van Suseren'last night-3/28-/06.
That poor kitty is under house arrest, and I emailed Greta, and asked her to be his lawyer.
I was glad to find this story. I searched Fox News Channel, and found nothing on it.
Lewis looks like my kitty Oreo. The kitty should be kept inside though.
The owner said some of the neighbors had been real mean to him, and he was probably just retalliating.
I love cats!

Don't worry about it. Some people here think if it's not a dog, it's not "manly" or whatever. Tough guy syndrome I suppose. That said I like dogs, but prefer to own cats. Besides, Pope Benedict XVI is a cat lover (when he walks through St. Peter's Square, they follow him in great numbers because he is always friendly to them. He even tried to bring his cats into the Papal Apartments but wasn't allowed to), what better company could we cat owners be in than that? :)

cats belong at home. I cannot understand why people let
them out to catch disease, get hurt, or cause damage to
people and birds.

Eeeeeeew! Did Edgrr kill it, or did he find it dead and just tote it inside?

Dennis dragged in a bird one time - a big damn thing, about half his size. It was still flappin'. Xena's Guy got it away from him, and I think it got chucked over the back fence. But I could be wrong.

Did Edgrr kill it

Oh yes, he's quite fierce.

The doves are easy prey, they'll land right in the yard.

The one he has there is a bluejay who was dive-bombing Edgrr.

He disapproves of dive-bombing.

Thank You, for the reply. I also got a real email reply from Greta. it made my day. Yeah, a lot more serious are going in the world, it is nice to have something light hearted on the radar screen. Although, it is serious for this owner, and Lewis.

Silly! Cats belong outside. Get real!

I've had cats for 35 years at my house. They're outdoors on our acreage most of the time. They get their original shots...... and NOTHING else. They all live over 20 years.

People who keep animals inside better have a good reason........ because it is not natural.

Btw............. cantaloupe and steamed carrots in their food are a secret ingredient to their long age.

I used to have outdoor cats. Pine martens got one, coyotes
got another, still another just walked off, and another caught a bug, got sick and died, and every time my wife was an emotional wreck for a week. Now our cats are always at home, we have cardinals and titmice on the feeders, and they don't get sick.
