You may remember the story of Kush, the Russian blue cat who we are told went berserk and terrified her owners. To me it appeared like a copycat scenario to the one regarding Lux, another allegedly super aggressive cat who was diagnosed by the well-known cat behaviourist Jackson Galaxy.
You may remember that this cat was taken to an animal shelter for a 10 day quarantine to check out rabies which didn’t look all that good to me and I wrote a subsequent article about Kush with a video in which the cat’s owners explained why they thought the cat had gone berserk although they appear not to have said the same thing to the police or animal control. The owner’s explanation was directed at the news media after the event.Apparently the owners, Mr and Mrs Gregory were unsure whether they wanted to reclaim their cat but we’re now told that they have decided they want her back. Apparently, Kush has behaved well at the animal shelter. There has been no behavioural problems. People aren’t sure whether this is due to the insecurity of being in a strange place or whether being a different place to where she lives it felt inherently safer. The latter suggestion is probably wrong because animal shelters are rather unnerving places.
Deland, Florida, animal control officer Michelle Realander:
“They have decided they are going to keep the cat at this time,” she said.
“The cat is going to the vet for vaccinations and then to be spayed and then the owners will claim her.”
