In my years of working in this industry I have been attacked by quite a few vicious little kitties.
I have been mutilated on the palms of my hands
I have got a scar on my ear lobe from a nasty whack.
I have got my fair share of injuries ... from frightened nasty cats... note: "frightened" first...
I have gotten pretty angry .... but my anger was never directed towards/ at the cats really... usually more upset because of my OWN carelessness.. or inability.
In my intern years, I have witnessed a certain vet grabbed a nasty Persian by the neck in one hand and the hindlimbs by the other hand ... and literally strangled and pulled the cat's body straight... I was mortified.
I promised myself I will never ever morph into this kind of person.
I know ... I have met really scary cats before... and they really need a firm, steady and strong hand...
BUT not a strangling, killer's grip.
So back to the question... how angry does one get when he or she gets scratched/ bittened/ mutilated???
Do you become a "cat hater"?
Do you hit the cat?
Do you avoid cats forever?
Or all of the above?
I hope your answer is none of the above.
Cursing and swearing .. should probably be enough.. and that should be it.
Tomorrow's cat is not the one that bit/ scratched you.
