Um, angry cats are scarier than any sized dog. Seriously, terrifying.

I have worked at a groomers and a vets office and I have never been savaged, nor been scared of a cat, but we had these pole things that kind of looked like the ones snake catchers use for cats (can't remember what they were called) so if they were really bad we would use those to pin them so the vet could sedate them.

So true.

At the clinic I worked at, I was the one that they'd make glove up and pin angry kitties because I was the only one who wouldn't flinch when attacked. Fun times.

Evil cats are the devil.

(But yes...I can't imagine I'd let a cat trap me somewhere.)

I am sticking to my "cats can be scary mofo's" guns.

We don't use catch poles on cats at my clinic, or on dogs for that matter.

We didn't either unless said animal was an extreme danger and that was only long enough to sedate.

Remember I also handle crazy, half ton animals for a living so no, a crazy cat is not intimidating to me, I give respect where respect is due, but I don't fear them.

This just reaffirms my belief that cats are kind of terrifying.

I really like cats. I will own cats someday (post Siri ). But I am worried that I will end up with a fractious cat at the vet's office. In which case, I will probably leave the room while they deal with it

After working at the clinic, I have every faith in the people there to handle my fractious cat. They do an amazing job of still being gentle with the animals while getting done what they need to on the really tough animals. So if I ever do have a fractious cat, I'm dropping that sucker off with CAKE!

I will happily restrain a 100lb unhappy dog before I will restrain any unhappy cat. I am so not into unhappy cats. They climb people.

We never used catch poles on cats either, I do believe it is not recommended due to serious risk of injury to the cat (you can't catch them on the neck). The few times we had SERIOUSLY fractious cats in boarding, we knew right away and had the owner come pick it back up (we wouldn't house an animal we couldn't get to a vet). Sometimes throw a heavily towel and use bite resistant gloves. At the vet clinics, the vet would use a long stick with a syringe on the end to sedate.

I had to bathe the occasional cat at one boarding place and just...no. Terrible.
