    My GF had a cat when I met her, so by association, I have a cat. Cats aren’t necessarily evil, just narcissistic.

    We got a rescue orange tabby about 8 months ago from the SPCA. He's a pretty big boy...almost 20 lbs. We'd had Mickey for about a month when he began biting me every once in awhile. Prior to that he had been a real sweetheart...no problems. Twice in about a week he came up to me while I was watching TV and bit me on the knee out of the blue...not hard but definitely I had been bitten. And after the bites he would be sitting back, 'coiled', ready to spring with his ears pinned back...got my adrenaline going I can tell you. Then one day while petting him he REALLY chomped on me. I had to give him a good knock on the head to release his bite. Immediately my hand began to swell and throbbed and this continued through the night. The next day I got myself to my Dr. and she put me on a antibiotics for a week. You need a specific antibiotic for a cat bite because of a particular bacteria in their mouths.

    I called the SPCA and they were willing to take him back. But I got thinking about things and reviewing how I was interacting with him and that he was very new to our home. I came to the conclusion that I had largely been responsible for his behaviour...he was responding to how I was interacting with him. Frankly, I had been very physical with him, picking him up a lot and handling him like the big boy that he is, assuming he would be okay with that. So, rather than demanding that he behave differently, I figured that since I was the creature who supposedly has the bigger brain, I would alter my behaviour and give it a second chance. After a friend saw my post on FB about the bite he said to me "I wouldn't put up with it!" And I said, "I'm not!. I'm going to change my behaviour."

    Things have been just fine since. We've had a couple small incidents but nothing like in the past. We get along just fine now. He's really very sweet. I limit my interaction with him and I'm aware of his moods. I pick him up every morning and cradle him for a few moments and he purrs and licks my hand...then I put him down. That's a daily routine. I pet him briefly throughout the day from time to time as well. I've lived with cats my whole life and they are can be strange little creatures, that's for sure.

    I have picked up by actual count ONE MILLION pounds of cat shilt out of my yard in the last twelve years. I see that dirty bastard out walking, we eye each other from a distance, and ponder which of us will outlive the other! Our association is strained at the very least. People say their cat doesn't stink. There a house on the path between golf holes at a local golf course, that everyone knows to hold their nose at least a hundred feet before and after passing, or pay the price. Gagging at a minimum, puking at the max. Even the drunks can't stand it. Why the HOA hasn't burned the place down is a mystery to everyone who plays the course.

    Probably not the first time that a cat house has been adjacent to a golf course…

    You're lucky to still have that hand. Catmouth bacteria is 'Nature's Novichok'.

    Cat bites are serious and not to be taken lightly. Here in California if you go to the Dr they are required to report the cat to the county and must be quarantined for about 1 to 2 weeks and the county charges you a fee for this service even if you quarantined your own cat. If you say you don’t know who’s cat it is then they try to give you rabies shots. At least that’s how it used to be.

    I thought about getting one of those Wrist Rocket sling shots & even a BB gun for the offending felines but I reside in the city so, I don't want to get on the bad side of the law.
    I figure I would just buy a trap, trap them thar vermin, and transport them down to the Mighty Mississippi so, they can become breakfast for bears. :lol:

    Felines also spread ringworm like it's a X-Mas gift.
    I just love it when Moms say something like, "I don't know why little Timmy is covered in these strange, round, red patches, and Timmy says he itches all to Hell" and Mom has four cats. :lol:

    Sure Mom, keep them thar kidos safe. :rolleyes:

    I love my cat, but I do have a theory about cats being fundamentally evil.

    I figure that cats are evil roughly in proportion to their size. I'm allowed to have a ~15lb house cat, because 15lbs isn't very much evil and I can handle it. If I were to try and have say, a 400lb cat, like a tiger, the authorities would come and take it from me, because they don't think I can contain so much evil.

    Compare that with dogs - the authorities will let me have as big a dog as I care to have, because dogs are fundamentally good, so they aren't concerned.

    My current cat is the sweetest little lady, not at all evil.

    ...unless you are a rodent...or try to pick her up (that will involve blood and cursing - I discovered this the day we picked her up from the SPCA. I still have the scar on the back of my hand)

    Next time she needs to go to see the vet, I'll be borrowing some welding gloves.
