HAILEY, Idaho (AP) -- A house cat attacked its owner, sending her to the hospital by ambulance with more than 20 bite wounds.
The cat, a black and white domestic male, went on the rampage Wednesday when a neighbor showed up at the door with a different cat, mistakenly thinking it belonged to the woman.
"She went to the door, and her cat went berserk," Jeff Nevins, assistant fire chief for Wood River Fire and Rescue, told the Idaho Mountain Express.
The woman in her 60s was taken to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center with what Nevins described as "pretty serious puncture wounds." Neither the hospital nor the fire department would provide any details to The Associated Press on Saturday, or say whether she has been released.
"I think the owner said she was going to take it to the shelter because that's not the first time she's been attacked," Nevins said.
20 puncture wounds? Holy crap. Hell, after the first couple she should have just taken a mallet and flattened the thing and bypassed the sheltar altogether. If it were me, there'd be furry cat bits splattered all over the walls and PETA can just go and suck my cock. Hmmm...on second thought, this little feline hellbeast could actually serve a purpose in convincing others of the evil nature of cats. As long as insane rage is heritable, they should use this cat to breed a whole army of kittens who could then be passed to sheltars, pet stores, and crazy cat ladies. The carnage might lead some people to reevaluate satan's minions. Cute and cuddly, my ass.
