'Guard Dog' Cat Attacks Pit Bull, Leaving Dog & Owner Bloodied, in Saanich, B.C

Quote:
A pit bull owner is calling for a change to animal bylaws in Saanich, B.C., after her dog was viciously attacked by a cat.

Javiera Rodriguez told a house cat attacked her pit bull while they were out for a walk with a group of six other pit bulls and their owners on Monday evening.

"The cat actually ran towards the dogs and started swiping at [my] dog's face," Rodriguez said.

Her three-year-old dog, Bandida, suffered scratches on the face, ears and chin. Rodriguez was also scratched in the attack. She described the cat as being average in size with white fluffy fur.

Kyla Grover, the owner of two of the other dogs on the walk, said she couldn't believe what she saw.

"At first I was just shocked that this cat would go after seven dogs," she said. "I thought it would get scared and run away but it never did."

She said she stepped in to help halt the attack.

"Bandida being a pit bull, I knew if something were to happen she would get blamed and I couldn't have that happen, so I just needed to get them apart," she said.

Grover also received puncture wounds and scratches that had to be treated in an emergency room, which took five hours she said.

No dangerous cat bylaw.

When Rodriguez reported the attack to the municipality, she found out Saanich only has bylaws on dangerous dogs.

"Regardless of what kind of pet you have, owners should be held responsible," she said.

Within the larger government district that encompasses Saanich, the Capital Regional District, there is a bylaw that prevents animals from being uncontrolled anywhere other than on its owner or caretaker's property.

One of the owners of the cat, Del Thompson, has apologized and has paid for Rodriguez's veterinary bills.

He said "it could've been a lot worse" and said the cat has attacked other dogs before.

"She sleeps most of the time so she doesn't have any reaction to anything really, except when dogs come by my wife — then she acts like a guard dog," he said.

Thompson's wife was outside gardening when the attack took place.

There would be one less fluffy white cat in the world once I grabbed that fugger.

Wow, unusual but cats are huge predators and this one must have a tweaked little brain!

Aggressive cats aren't all that uncommon. Because there are no laws and people just figure "Cat being a cat", you don't hear about it.

I'd be so angry, I'd want to kill the cat and nail it to it's owner's forehead.

Killed someone?

An animal can be aggressive and violent without actually killing someone.

Yes.

But the severity of the attack varies a lot.

There's a big difference between a scratch on your finger and getting your arm chewed off.
