|Yeah, I don't see the appeal...|
Anyway, check this out. It's about a family in Portland, Oregon who got into a fight with their cat. Yes, a fight. With their goddamn cat. And yes, the cops were called.

|Was the cat a misidentified velociraptor?|
No? Then perhaps they're over-reacting.
'Cause they did. Yes. 911: the number we call for heart attacks and murder. They felt that the cat was so dangerous that they had to skip right over animal control and bring in the human police, who had to take time out of their day of doing cop things to come and rescue a family from their pet.

reconsidering her career
|I don't know Lee, maybe you could give |
the baby away to a nice farm. You know, one
with lots of room so he can run around and play.
"We are debating what to do...we definitely want to keep (the cat) away from the baby and keep an eye on its behavior."

I guess my issue isn't so much with cats as it is with what people do to them. I mean, we've taken predators out of their natural habitat, bred them for adorability, de-clawed them, spayed and neutered them, and then we've devoted like a quarter of the internet to their humiliation. Of course they want to claw our eyes out, wouldn't you?
