Claws For Concern

Yikes! After that horrific story about the poor girl who was mauled to death by a pit bull in Liverpool, I've been nervously scouring the internet to see if there's any advice about what to do when one attacks. Given the number of the beasts that are tugged around here on lengths of string, it seems only sensible.

So I was shocked to discover that Ramsgate has it's very own dangerous cat, which has so far savaged five postmen, one police officer, five paper boys, one takeaway driver and a construction worker. The one-and-a-half stone feline, called Blackie, belongs to security worker Ann Hogben.

"He really is a very loving cat - it just seems as though he has problems with people in uniform," she told the London Evening Standard.

Sounds like a fur ball excuse to me.

Mr Eastcliff was later arrested and charged with offences under the Dangerous Puns Act 1991

I never heard it called a mouse in uniform before, but it kind of makes snese.
