09:29 pm - Scary cat!
I love cats. Really. But after my experience of last night I have to make one exception.

Around midnight I heard growling from the bedroom corridor. I went to investigate: Micah sat at the top of the stairs, looking down at a ginger tomcat that produced all the growling. I wanted to get him outside, so I tried to shoo him gently.  He then aimed his growling at me, upping the ante with hissing and spitting. Finally I got him downstairs, where he took refuge behind the couch. It was impossible to get near him, he was so ferocious! I got scratched, and decided that being kind and gentle was not the way to handle this situation. I grabbed a pillow and hit the cat from hell until he ran outside through the catflap. Then I had to look for Hiro who was still outside (the reason the flap was still open). And our nestor City, who is with us for the moment, just hid in my daughter's bedroom untill al the fracas was over.

That cat was really scary, I have never seen such an aggressive one. Maybe he was just frightened, but somehow that wasn't the impression I got.

Ah, in the Veterinary Profession, we call those a Miniature Puma.

Or sometimes A Highly Miniaturized Exploding Thermonuclear Grelbin Device.

Some really are that aggressive.

Miniature Puma, that is a very good description! The HMETGD is also brilliant.
Do you get a lot of those in the practice? (I take it you work 'in the veterinary profession')
I wonder if such a cat behaves otherwise at home. Would he ever sit on anyone's lap?
