The moment brave cat lands knockout left hook on shocked Pomeranian
UK Daily Mail ^ | July 12, 2012 | Graham Smith

The look on his face is one of complete surprise. In a case of David versus Goliath, this is the moment a Pomeranian is shocked to be on the receiving end of a left hook from a feline nemesis. For centuries, the traditional foes have been locked in battle with one another, with dogs normally having the upper hand. But this freeze frame captures the exact moment that status quo is shattered as a Siamese cat takes his revenge.

I had a 14-pound Siamese male named Finn MacCoul.

He was solid muscle and quick as thought, and he did have a mean streak thanks to his ggg grandfather, one Thaibok Teriyaki, who may have been the meanest, baddest Siamese cat EVER (I thought it was far enough back to have attenuated . . . but, no). Finny was an indoor cat, but he would routinely sneak out of the house and "guard" our territory.

All the dogs in the neighborhood were terrified of him. He would smack their noses around a bit, then leap on their backs and sharpen his claws on the backs of their heads as they ran for dear life. Size didn't seem to matter - Boxers, Swiss Mountain Dogs, Border collies, whatever. Even two Labs at one time did not faze him. The one dog we had then was intensely respectful of him.

Dogs crossed the street rather than come into our yard.

In a case of David versus Goliath

A Pomeranian is not "Goliath" to any cat. That goes doubly so for a Siamese because every one I've met is completely insane. Take every bit of typical cat craziness and multiply it by ten to get a Siamese.

The cat is showing excellent technique. I nice right hand body punch that got the Pommy to lower it’s guard followed by the left hook to the jaw.

This cat’s a CONTENDA!

No Goliath there. They’re evenly matched.

Miss Kitty here hates the 100+ pound slobber buckets that inhabit her domain. Normally, they avoid her but if they get within range it’s a dozen rapid blam blam blams on their heads. Thankfully, they just look at her all sad and wander away. She doesn’t realize she’s snack sized.

Clearly, the pup is taking a dive. Anyone check out the betting line action?

“Brave Cat”?....hardly.....another Pomeranian is the innocent victim of a thug cat mugger.

“Gimme your milkbone or your life!”, screamed Fluffy the criminal cat.

I have a bobtail cat that just showed up one day and never left. He is an abuser of dogs. If any of my dogs crosses his invisible line of space, they pay for it.

I had a Siamese that used to sit in the center of the stairs. The Schnauzer wouldn’t dare try to pass.

I don’t think a dog normally has the upper hand. In my house, the cat can force the medium sized dog to back off any time it wants. A cat is a killing machine, and a dog soon knows its place. As someone once said, “If your cat were as large as your dog, you would be lunch.”

Your cat is probably a Bobcat or Lynx. Sometimes they are also called “Tufted Ear Devils”. If a two hundred pound kitty shows up at your house, that will probably be a Mountain Lion or Cougar or, as it is more commonly known down South, a “mean, long-tailed son-of-a-bit__”. I saw a report where a mountain lion killed a couple of wolves.
“If you go out in the woods today you’re going to get a surprise!”
Cats....they think people are here for their amusement and consumption.

I would never own a Siamese. I would rate them as the most vicious “domestic” cat breed. Some are just plain mean, the rest will turn on you when you least expect it. JMHO.

We had a cat lady down the street that had probably 100 cats. Of all the breeds, only the Siamese kept to themselves. The first time I walked in the house, we walked down the hall and looked to the right to see about 8 Siamese sitting on a table staring us down. Cat Lady said “You do NOT want to go in there, EVER.”

I visited that house several times and it was always the same. I will never forget that experience.

As an aside, while Siamese as a breed have a certain character, their personalities vary widely on their subtype.

Importantly, some are social with a person, but as with a few breeds of dog, they will limit themselves to just a single person. They are also daytime cats, as they have below par, for cats, night vision.

Some are very effective as “guard cats”, and some who have had their front paws declawed have mastered fighting with their hind leg claws only. Commonly they can have a very loud howl and hiss when needed.

It's the same as any other pedigreed animal - you just have to watch your breeding.

I had no business getting a Teriyaki descendant, even as far back in my boy's pedigree as that old monster was (with my own eyes I saw him meet his teeth in a CFA judge's hand, then flee under the bleachers to hide and bite his owner for good measure. If he hadn't been a Quadruple Grand Champion he would have been put down. Same old story - prestige and show points win over temperament.)

That was when I learned that Breeding Tells. I bred and showed Siamese for 10+ years, and Finny was the only one I ever had who had a mean streak. Quirky sense of humor, yes. REALLY loud voices, yes. Goofy behavior like dropping on people's heads from the top of doors, yes. But never biting, never scratching.

My current little Siamese is a gentle lamb, she won't even scratch the dogs when they give her big sloppy kisses, she just yells at them and sketches a slap in their general direction. She is a favorite at the vet because she's a cuddler and never struggles to get down or run away.

I have a 18 year old (mostly) Russian Blue that for the last 17 1/2 years STILL will dart out through your feet in a dark hallway in the middle of the night at the most opportune (for her) moment. . .

What instinct this satisfies I will never know. We are just their playthings, I guess.

I looked at the first pic and almost blew diet soda all over the screen. Then I looked at the second and I knew I had to just put the drink down and leave it alone for my computer’s sake, LOL.

Little Nifi (for Magnificat) has been known to run across people's faces while they were asleep . . . that can be a bit ouchy. But she's just being weird, not vicious.

Never had a nicer kitty.

Last night while sitting in my hot tub..my cat came running around the corner like a jet...jumped up and went head first into the hot tub. I guess she thought the lid was on?

Our kitten ‘broke bad’ on our little eternally maternal PPM.

That really upset her, to have her loving overtures so cruelly rebuffed.

Last night, the kitten met Odin.

I’m pretty sure the cat will -never- ‘abuse’ another dog again.

He met reality and it scared the bravado right out of him.

[FWIW, he’s supposedly part Siamese...but that did him absolutely no good]
