Baby, an average-sized fluffy white cat in Victoria, British Columbia went on a violent scratching spree last week, with a group of seven pitbulls at the receiving end of her rage. Described as being “very protective” of her owner, Baby apparently jumped out of the bushes and started swiping at the dogs when one of them, named Bandida, approached her owner in a friendly manner.
Bandida, required veterinary treatment after the attack and, according to owner Javiera Rodriguez, came close to losing an eye! The Times Colonist reported that the cat’s owner agreed to foot a $222 veterinarian bill for Bandida.
Interestingly, there are no laws in this area against violent attacks by cats – only dogs. While Baby’s owner has agreed to pay the vet bills associated with the attack, Rodriguez believes she should be held accountable – regardless of what kind of animal Baby is.
