Bad cat news

Visitors to one of France’s most beautiful tourist areas were today warned to be on their guard after a pack of feral cats launched an attack on a young woman.

About six cats pounced on the unnamed dog owner as she walked her poodle in the city of Belfort, in the popular Franche-Comte region, on the Swiss border, dragging her to the ground and mauling her.

She was bitten repeatedly and left with a torn artery which could have proved fatal, while the dog was also badly hurt.

It is thought that particularly high summer temperatures may have made the cats far more aggressive than usual. Read more. The Telegraph

I get cranky when I'm hot too. My kitties (above) just chill out. But seriously, feral cats are the result of not spaying and neutering. So irresponsible.

PS: Don't tell Dave about this.
