Considering how many thousands of dollars I had to pay for my own trip to the emergency room after being savaged by a four pound cat - and yes, we called the police because I ended up trapped in a bathroom and the owner in her own bedroom?
This isn’t funny.
I can call what happened to me hilarious, in retrospect. I got my ass kicked by a four pound cat, and had to have part of my lip excised and stitches - but… four pound cat. I can call it hilarious. Unless you’re a friend of mine, you can’t. Because it wasn’t funny.
That? A cat that size can do permanent, horrible damage. Can take out an eye. Can cause really badly infected wounds.
Seriously. Not funny.
I think the reason I found it funny was because I have been attacked by our own cat multiple times, still have long white scars on my right arm, and (from a separate incident involving punctures) had to go to a clinic four days afterwards with inflammation nearly up to my elbow because no one would believe it was serious, and had to be given “the daisy cutter of antibiotics” and a steroid shot. It was an “I’ve been there” kind of funny.
I can see getting mauled by a cat. not getting trapped by a cat. For future reference: use a comforter/heavy blanket, throw over cat, deposit outside. you can also use a laundry basket or a hamper. I feel like these people had no problem solving/survival skills here.
