This is a little follow up to yesterday’s post regarding Fred the Cat

The funny thing about Fred’s stays at the vet’s boarding facility is that he has never bitten or scratched anyone there. They say that he just hisses and growls when anyone comes anywhere near his quarters. No matter why the people who work there are in the same room with him, he raises holy cat hell.

Thing is, I have never seen Fred show any aggression, except toward me if I try to brush him. I doubt seriously he is even angry with the folks at the vet’s, I think he’s just screwing with them because he can. If cat’s can have fun, I think that is exactly what he’s doing. Kind of like a cat playing with a mouse except Fred has no intention of eating the vet techs after he finishes playing with them.

As long as they feed Fred, everyone should be safe. If not, well...

Well, of course--Fred would never really hurt anyone. He's a pacifist at heart.

i wouldn't want to be the tech who tests fred on that eating thing. our cat is the opposite. sullenly docile at the vets while being examined, hissing and growling at us at home for nail clipping and dreadlock trimming, tho he has gotten to like being brushed in his cat dotage.

Fred has nothing to apologize for! Some pets just get defensive when they're in a cage. Our old dog Alice was that way when we boarded her - they actually wrote a big "Will bite!" on her folder to warn the kennel workers about her. Yet when she wasn't in the cage she loved people.
