"Javiera Rodriguez told CBC News a house cat attacked her pit bull while they were out for a walk with a group of six other pit bulls and their owners on Monday evening.
`The cat actually ran towards the dogs and started swiping at [my] dog`s face,` Rodriguez said.
Her three-year-old dog, Bandida, suffered scratches on the face, ears and chin. Rodriguez was also scratched in the attack. She described the cat as being average in size with white fluffy fur."
A kitty cat has an altercation with seven pit bulls, but it wasn`t the feline who ended up in an animal hospital. One of the dogs suffered cuts and bites that required him to go to the vet, and one of the dog owners was taken to ER.
This incident dispels two myths:
Cats aren`t "fraidy cats", they are fearsome predators who will rarely back down in a fight.
Pit bulls aren`t savage animals, the pit pulls howled and barked, but they didn`t attack the cat.
The owner of the cat paid for the vet and ER bills.
I love my cats. but I`m careful not to get on their bad side. Sometimes cats will seek revenge immediately, but at other times they will bide their time, they understand that revenge is a dish best served cold.
