I STILL FUCKING LOVE CATS

I like rolling up pieces of paper and throwing them at it

Mr Biggie is adapting to life in a cone-of-shame. He tore open part of his face whilst scratching with a broken back claw (since trimmed off),and just kept aggravating the sores til he looked like a kitty meth-head.

We started with a soft collar, but he learned to turn it inside out, and wrecked his head anew.

He's now sporting a rigid plastic one that fits more snuggly. Doesn't bother him, but it bothers me, as he likes to sit on my lap for extended cuddles and that. One of his favourite things is to lick/bite my nose, so when he turns to do that, his cone fits over my face like a jet-pilot's oxygen mask, and before I can get away (he's fast) I get a faceful of cat stank.

One of our cats purrs away to herself even with no attention. Usually when she's sleeping on the computer chair and I have to use the folding wooden one instead as I'm way too soft to push her off.

The devil cat saga is pretty much over. I received a deferred sentence as it was my only dealing with police ever.

The accusations of threats of violence were thrown out for being lies and after the judge read my lengthy statement justifying why I shouted at the owner and all I had endured because of the cat I was told that that was the outcome.

Glad it's over but still have to deal with the cat. As bad as it sounds I hope it attacks a small child soon as really that is the only way anything will ever be done about it. Scarring someone for life, causing people thousands of pounds in vet bills and putting a pensioner in hospital, breaking of the law and council tenancy agreements are apparently not valid enough reasons for several organisations to take action so unfortunately that is probably the only thing that would but not holding my breath.

Appreciate the support and jokes that have been on here regarding it over the past year. You're all a nice bunch really!

Love to ya Malcy, sounds like such an awful ordeal. I feel sorry for the evil cat as well, no cats are born that way really, it's obviously had a shite time at some point in its life, mistreatment likely, and is probably upset/freaked out by the world. It makes me really sad to think about a cat like that, but like you said at this point there's almost certainly nothing else that can be done save for it somehow being taken in by a shelter, even if it's eventually deemed unfit to be rehomed... Fuck, sorry, this is really bumming me out. :(

Thank you.

I thought it was a stray at first and was all for trying to bring it in and look after it as I felt sorry for it and can't stand the thought of a cat being alone and unloved.

It was the fact it's not neutered I don't think so anytime it attacks a cat it causes so many problems and expensive antibiotic treatments. She claimed it was neutered until I challenged her over and over and then said ok I'll get it done. It's free! But still didn't do it. I sent the council a lengthy complaint and they rang back to say they had rang the owner and asked that she get it microchipped. Microchipped.

I feel sorry for the cat too. It needs a proper home. But it's hard to keep that sympathy up when you're in debt by a lot because of shelling out £3-400 at the vets every time it attacks my Salem.

Cat a few doors up was in such a bad state the owner had to get Cats Protection to collect it in a special basket as it was in such a bad way they could t get it into the normal cat carrier.

And she still gets away with it. It's really sad as think she has other cats which have now been spotted by my neighbour. I've tried everything. I can't help them. It's very sad.

I'm quite amazed about the physical feeling I have never mind the mental. My anxiety is 90% less what it was. I no longer have this horrible feeling of dread every day. I have a lot to worry about still and that cat is one of them but to not have the charge over me is like someone has removed an anvil from my chest. I know it was just a breach of the peace but 35 and not even a caution or warning against me to be put in me by this when I'm the victim was tough.

Should have seen the pissed off look on the judges face when he read my multi page explanation for my actions. With each new page he sighed and had a look of "fuck sake". But glad he took it all in to account.

Bloody hell man. Yeah, that's rough as fuck, I can only relate with the anxiety of having other stuff hanging over me like debt fears and stuff but it's similar I guess, and it is horrible, especially when you're just trying to do the right thing. It's a shame there's no screening process for potential pet owners out in the wild and the world must be full of cases like this, such a nightmare to resolve and to make matters worse you're viewed as the crazy or unhinged one for becoming more frustrated, upset and angry trying to find justice.

You've done your level best though, if you can try and find some solace in the fact that you did everything you could and stood up to it and achieved some sort of very small victory, inconsequential though it is. You fought the law and uhh... weren't prosecuted? Regardless, it takes stamina and guts in the face of horrible adversity and I have to commend that. I hope things get easier for you in the future.

That's really lovely mate, thank you.
