Well anyone who has read my posts knows I love cats....but that second video scares me. The cat wasn't "soothing" the baby, he was reacting to the
stimulation of the baby crying, and could very easily scratched the baby (as shown by the "mouthing" on the baby's head) Those parents were lucky.
Cats are sensitive and loving, but they are still animals, and must be respected as such. I learned this the hard way. My sweet boy "Smoochy", who I
bottle feed as an abandoned kitten put me in the hospital once! He is VERY sweet natured and is strictly an indoor cat....but before I got him
nuetered, he got outside and quickly came across another male cat. The other male cat had him cornered (during mating season) and they were about to
fight.....my "motherly" instinct kicked in, and I tried to "save" him from being hurt by the other cat. I stupidly reached out to grab him (thinking
he would be grateful to have me protect him).....and he visciously ATTACKED ME....all teeth and claws. He ripped my hand and leg open (and I mean he
SLASHED me!) and I got a bad infection...spent 4 days in the hospital! Most people said "I would have left his a** OUT or killed him!!!". But
NO....it was MY mistake for projecting human emotions onto an animal. He WANTED to fight, to claim his territory, and those instincts overide any
affection he felt for me. He finally came back in, and I swiftly had him neutered
He has never shown aggression since then. Moral of this story:
You can NEVER 100% trust an animal, no matter how well you know him, because their primary instincts will always be there, and cats are predators.
Here's a pic of Smoochy....could you imagine that this sweety is the one who almost killed me?
I treat him with the utmost respect now
did nothing wrong...I did.
