Headline writers need to be thrashed. Is the garage expected to heal?

Instead of a “tiger in a tank,” there was a bobcat in the garage.

Good thing we have the Second Amendment. It’s for personal defense, you know.

When I was a kid my Uncle actually had this happen to him ...

There was a Bobcat in the Garage, he just closed the door and invited us all over to look at it. It was perched on top of his Step Ladder and during our BBQ he would take each of us to the Garage door ... open it up with a little fanfare and we could look at the Bobcat... when the get together was over he just left the door open and the Bobcat went about it’s business, most likely avoiding my Uncles property.

It isn’t all that fantastic for grownups but as an 8 year old I thought it was awesome.

Now to me they are just Vermin that kill my Chickens and I treat them as such.

TT

A Bobcat? In Massachusetts?

“Quick, Reggie, call the police! There’s one of those Robertcats under the limo!”

This was no laughing matter! They think the cat was rabid.

A hunter shot one off my property a few weeks ago. Now I know where some of my chickens went.

Modern medicine, however, just makes it an adventure* instead of a tragedy. The guy will live, he'll have to get shots, but he'll have a story to tell.

*Adventure: Someone, far, far away having a miserable time.

I was bit pretty bad by a Siamese cat that I had owned for about a half hour (before she bit me) and I was in pain for almost a week afterward. The bad part was that I was in th emiddle of sewing my daughter’s 1st Communion dress, and it required a lot of hand work on it. That cat drove her teeth down through the bones in my hand which reacted by swelling up and stiffening up so that I could no move my fingers. Then the cat ran away.

The doctor said that if I didn’t find that cat by the weekend and place her into quarentine that I’d have to undergo the shots. Luckily, I found her in about 2 days. But I still remember how much my hand hurt. I can’t imagine how much pain that man is in with the bites on his face, as well as on his back and arm. Bigger cat, bigger claws, biggler teeth, dirtier mouth!

Yep..I can hear the story now.

Sonny, did I ever tell you about the time I was attacked by a bobcat? I did? I don’t think so..you don’t know about this time. See...there was this 580 lb ‘cat hidin’ on the garage door opener tracks. When I went out to the garage he dropped down on top of me. I wrestled with him for about an hour and a half and finally choked the life out of him with my bare hands. I drug him thru 10 feet of snow and when it the snow melted in the spring we had a big barbeque.

(The story as my granddad would have told it, lol).
