I was attacked by neighborhood Feral Tom Cat, but I'm Ok!
Dear Friends and Fans of Princess Sugar Pie,
On Friday, April the 24th, while I was on my leash, sitting on my front porch with my Human Daddy, while minding my own business, I was attacked by the neighborhood's Feral Tom Cat. He came up to sniff me and not liking it, I placed my paw on his head to keep him back. After that, he started growling at me. When I turned away, from him, he grabbed me around my back which caused me to scream. The attack also scared my Human Daddy as well as my Feline Family. When my Daddy started hollering at the Tom Cat, he ran away. After my Daddy unleashed me, I was so scared that I didn't know what to do but run inside the house. Fortunately, I was not hurt. This was the "Very First" time that I have ever been attacked, because I usually stand my ground and run the other Bad Cat(s) off.
On Saturday, I rode with my Daddy in his Pickup Truck over to the Sevier County Animal Shelter to deliver the Feral Tom Cat to his temporary new home. The Feral Feline rode in the back of the truck in an old "Dog Pet Porter" that my Daddy uses as as an extra "Cat Bed", when the other cats need a place to rest and get out of the sun. My Daddy managed to capture the Feral Cat about a couple of hours before we took him to the Animal Shelter, after gaining the Feral Feline's trust a little over a week before this happened. Prior to this incident, my Daddy was able to pet and brush the Feral Tom Cat which made his capture very easy. My Daddy seems to have a way with Feral Cats while making them calm down and feel at ease. Since the Sevierville Police Department's Animal Control Officer was "off duty", Daddy was the only person that could transport the Feral Feline to Shelter. Hopefully, the Feral Tom Cat will be adopted very soon, after the Animal Shelter has him neutered. I was so glad that Daddy saved me, my Step-son, Step-daughter, and Step-sister from this mean spirited Feral Cat. I am so thankful for that! Until next time, Ciao, Meow and Bye for Neow.
Love and Purrs,
Princess Sugar Pie
