Wife calls 911 for help as family cat attacks her husband — 11 Comments

  1. It’s very rare to hear about a feline attacking it’s owners to the extent they call 911. Much more common and a daily event in most cities to have calls about dogs biting , attacking or menacing. But since this story was about a CAT it got blown up.
    Cats and punishment don’t mix. Cats require redirection.
    Little Mercy was dumped back at the shelter at 4 months old for being aggressive. We have yet to see a hint of aggression and she’s been with us for 7 months. She is in fact sweet and gentle, loving and very well behaved. Scratch post training took less than 3 days. I got her the same day she was turned in so was able to speak to the AC officer and the intake person as well as the keeper in the cat area. The scruffed her to take her out so we could visit. Mercy looked in my eyes and clung to me. They had to pry her off. She’s now a happy secure young lady who has no clue she was on death row.

    • You make your point very eloquently ME. And the point that you make is excellent. There is a lot of misunderstanding out there amongst many cat owners and arguably the standard of cat ownership is not high enough in general terms.

  2. Yes Michael, you sound correct again. It’s so unfortunate, no, unforgivable that having had cats as pets for so long, humans by and large still have little knowledge about them. Reasons for getting a cat are too often they just want low maintenance (don’t have to wash and walk them), and if that’s the priority, the lazy human isn’t going to burn one calorie toward thinking what the cat might want, at all, at any time. Heck, just ignoring your cat when it asks for a pet can hurt them. They are exquisitely sensitive if we bother to notice, and it’s the number one, if not the only animal on the planet that should never be punished. You’d think to remember that one thing about that one animal that’s around all the time wouldn’t be too much to ask.

    • I totally agree with you Albert. Most cat owners are cat caretakers in guardians and decent people it seems to me but not everyone is. Some are just “owners” and they are lazy to boot.

    • Although I don’t live in the USA I do understand what you are saying. The south and the Bible belt seem to be areas where there is slightly less regard and respect for animals than in the North.

  3. Anyone who can’t handle their domesticated cat needs to move aside and rehome.
    Ofcourse, the idiot husband was abusive. Exactly why the cat retaliated.
    For me, it would be… goodbye -sshole hubby and hello kitty.
