Default Cat attacks Pit Bull....

Did anyone hear on the news today that some lady's Pit Bull was attacked by a stray cat? I was watching ABC news Channel 12 in Milwaukee and they had a story on about a Stray Cat attacking a lady's Pit Bull in he back yard. It was bad enough that she had to take the dog to the Vet to be sewn up.

I didn't catch what city in happen in (Just know CA), did anyone else hear about it? I have been trying to find the story on the web and haven't had any luck.

I wonder if they will push for BSL on cats?

I had a cat once who blinded a lab in self-defense, and my grandmother's cat (who was as big as a racoon) regularly chased dogs out of the yard. They're little, but they've got pretty good weapons if they choose to use them.

Link to that station's website with the stories for the week, I don't see it but you might know what the exact headline was.

The story is getting ready to come on the local news here. I'll report back!

Not much. I think it was in CA. She just simply let her dog(s) out (yet I saw no footage of another dog) into her fenced in back yard and the cat was there and attacked her dog. She had to take it to the vet and it cost $100 and her dog got a few stitches. She was just complaining that cat owners should be as responsible as dog owners, because if "HER DOG" would have done that... yadda yadda... and she has no idea who the cat's owner is. It was kind of overblown, IMO...

Lady has a point though, wandering cats kill wild birds and crap in my garden. Then I have to listen to the wife moan about that on top of my dog peeing on her flowers. Ban cats!

I agree !!! My past neigbor's cats used my garden as a litter box, were after my birds and decided my crawl space was the place to fornicate and have their litters.... the smell was awful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fixed that by fostering a high prey drive dog chased them out, and even though that dog has been homed the cats do not return. He taught Maddie that inside cats are okay, but outside cats are not - unless I say "Leave It"!

No offense TroyF but cats have to live, too. I find it cruel personally to keep a cat indoor, it would be like keeping your dog in your house or in the yard all the time without letting them out.

But again, there are about 10 cats that come and go in my neighborhood so even if mine didn't go outside, it wouldn't change a thing. It doesn't bother me, plus when my cat kills something she leaves it in the yard or brings it in, so nobody else has to suffer from it. And it's not like we don't already have poops to clean anyway.
