Reminder: Don't kick snow into a cat's face
news.yahoo.com ^ | 12-14-13

Here's a not-so-subtle reminder to leave stray felines alone. A woman who was apparently trying to protect her dog from an ornery cat that she'd taken in kicked a little snow in the feline's face. What could possibly go wrong?

A lot. According to WJBK Fox 2 in Detroit, which aired the video, the cat lept onto the woman's face and clawed at her forehead. The catfrontation with its silent-movie-type visuals can be seen as a tad comic, but the woman in the video did suffer significant injuries, WJBK reports.

The victim told WJBK that she had to go to the hospital after the attack with bite marks on her forehead and claw marks on her cheeks. The attack also led to an infection that caused her face to swell.

she had to go to the hospital

Don't worry -- everyone gets free healthcare these days.

Right?

Watch out where
the kitties go
and don’t you shove
upon them snow!

That was so freaking funny.

People don’t realize a pissed-off cat will take on anything and anyone, including pit-bulls.

There was one video of a cat taking on a crock/alligator. Sent it on its way.

According to the article, she took it in because someone else threatened to shoot it.

Wonder whether she feels the same way now?

Well, she kicked snow at the cat at least 7 times and had him pretty well backed into something. Paybacks are hell.

My friend, a petite older woman, adopted a tiny little white kitten. The kitten was misbehaving so she placed it in her bedroom and shut the door. The tiny kitten amazed her by forcefully rattling the door and meowing in anger. She finally gave up and decided to open the door to let it out of her room. The moment it saw her, it hissed little kitty profanity and ran at her. She took off running and together - they circled the house with the kitten continuing it’s verbal threats and chasing her with a look of rage on it’s face.
She took it back to the shelter...

Muggy, the bayou ferry cat. Awesome! On 2 episodes of “Bad Dog”. Winner of 1 of them.

Quite possibly ... video doesn't show what the cat was up to that she was trying to stop. The cat may very well deserve being punted into the next county.

It’s Mugsy the bayou ferry cat. Cat gets angry at all the gators it lives near. Not afraid of them!

Dogs are more predictable. They generally will not kill people unless they have a five to one advantage.

Someone once said that, if your cat was as big as your dog, you would be kitty’s lunch.

While bleeding profusely I entered my home loaded up my shotgun, returned to the battle and blew that cat into so many pieces all the kings men could not put it back together.

It was hilarious. Not a fan of cats, wet or dry, and do know how to deal with them. You don’t kick snow at them. And, cats have a brain and brainstem that is the size of most people’s thumb to first thumb joint. Squirt gun is the answer cold or not cold.

Article says she was protecting her little Beagle-like dog, so probably was angrily harassing the dog.

Hard to tell from the video, but right before the cat went after her, I suspect she actually kicked the cat.

She is lucky it didn’t scratch her eyes up, that is most likely what it was going for but missed. If a cat is hunching its back and hissing at you it is time to leave it alone. They are only scaredy cats until they are cornered. Then they turn into land piranhas.

I want to know how this was caught on film. Did they really think this might be good to film? It was very still, too, so not like someone holding a camera phone.

I love dogs. I love cats, but they are worlds apart in temperament. Cats are an entity unto themselves, and tolerate people who care for them.

I love both, but not true. Stereotypes undue both ways. Lots of personalities. You have to pick wisely. Wonderful devoted adoring cats to be had as well as lousy nasty dogs.

My Tom Cat likes to play fight, and he can attack so hard and so fast, he almost brought me to my knees out of surprise once.
