Ive just been attacked..
 
By a cat...manky looking thing too.

We were walking Gucci and it just flew out from under a car and went mental trying to kill her! Im swinging her round on her lead trying to get her away from it,and when i managed to pick her up the cat followed us and started flying at me to try and get to her!
Ive now got bleeding claw marks on my thigh and im not happy.

I [email protected] hate cats.:curse:

Make sure you disinfect the scratches, manky cats tend to carry all sorts of nasty stuff like cat scratch fever. Also make sure your tetanus is up to date.

Was thinking the same about Tetanus MD.
Hope you're alright.....

I was worried about that.God knows when I had a tetanus last!
To be honest I was more worried about Gucci getting scratched by it than me.Christ knows what it might be carrying.:eek:

Even a cat has got more sense than that...if it had hurt my dog or my handbag I would have killed it.Slowly and painfully!

That explains the cats boldness..not a fighting breed the Shih-Tzus.

I´ve been thinking about getting a smaller dog as well but I´m not sure if it could take a place 'in the pack' as my dogs (ridgebacks) are rather tough.
With that I mean running around and roaming the countryside with the others.

Was thinking more of you..if your were scratched you should get it seen to asap, just to be safe (especially if the scratch drew blood).

Yeah I have some wicked stories of people who have been bitten or scratched. House cats and street cats. One had to go to emergency a day after a street cat scratch.

One had to have surgery after my house cat bit her on the leg. ha!

serious, if you're pregnant and been scratched by a stray, I'd go and get checked out, I know a lass who stroked a stray kitten and it scratched her and drew blood and her arm swelled up like a balloon, was bloody horrible.
