Cats are known for their docile and gentle nature.
That's why they're so popular as pets.
But sometimes even the most amenable creature can have a bad day.
And that might explain what happened to Kyla Grover, of Victoria, British Columbia, when she was out with a walking group called Pit Bulls of Victoria B.C. one evening.
A cat, named Baby, charged them.
The attack sent one of the dogs to the veterinarian and the pup’s owner to the emergency room.
“The cat is swiping at them and latched onto one of the dog’s faces,” Grover told the Victoria Times Colonist. “I got bit and scratched in the process of trying to separate them.”
“I spent the whole night at emergency because cat bites are nasty.”
The Times Colonist reported that the cat’s owner agreed to foot a $222 veterinarian bill for one of the dogs, Bandida, which ended up with a scratched face.
The cat’s owner, 78-year-old Betty Jean Thompson, said that the cat was startled when one of the dogs showed a friendly interest.
“She’s kind of a slow sort of thinking cat, but one thing is she is very protective of me,” Thompson said.
