He only LOOKS innocent. Trust me.
Meet Quaker. He’s a good kitty that I got a few years ago the week before Thanksgiving. His cage had a warning sign at the shelter. It said, “THIS CAT BITES.”
Most of the time, he’s a sweetheart. He snuggles, nudges, rubs, purrs, and tries to lay on your
head pillow to get attention.
Last week, he SCRATCHED the baby’s cheek, though. And that’s a NO-NO around here. I chased him down the stairs with a belt and caught the end of him with a pop as he quickly squished his huge self out of the cat door to the garage in horrified retreat from the raving lunatic mama and her bleeding little man-cub.
I doubt he’ll ever do that again.
Dogs might not be smart enough, but old kitties CAN learn new tricks.
