Couple calls the cops
on their crazed cat

New York Post, by David K. Li

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/8/2014 7:29:30 PM

A Florida couple called the cops after their crazed cat attacked them and trapped them in their home. Kush, a 4-year-old Russian Blue, lashed out at his owners, Teresa and James Gregory, in a fur-flying rampage that prompted calls to DeLand police. The cat was removed from the home by animal control and has been quarantined for 10 days following the Saturday night attack that left its owners with several bloody scratches on their legs and hands, according to Bay 9 News. They declined medical attention. Kush’s assault sounded a lot like the case of 22-pound Lux, whose feline tantrum drove his owners to hide in a locked room and call

Comments:
Not meaning to profile, but if you have a "Russian Blue," don´t make any sudden movements around them. (Must have seen the recent episode of “My Cat From Hell.”)

A blanket and a tennis racket would work wonders in that situation, followed by a canvas sack and a river.

I admit, I´ve never been in this situation (I´ve been scratched by a scared cat, but not like this)

But you never hear: Do these people ever try throwing water on the cat? I would think it would run.

If not, throw even more water? They really hate it.

(unless it´s a jaguar, but if you have one of those, you have no sympathy from me LOL)

Not to be picky, but that is not a Russian Blue in the photo.

We have 3 rescue cats and they are sweet and loving.
The only thing Russian I like is vodka.

Once upon a time, a rescue cat my daughter saved from a wall cavity in her place of work, as a particularly loud kitten, was in our home and lived with us for a year or so. It was always prone to scratching and the occasional nip. One day I picked up the cat from off my bed and was carrying it gently into another room. It went nuts, clamped down with its teeth on the web of my hand, and wrapped all four claws into my arm and scratched bloody furrows into my arm. My daughter was watching, so I refrained from ripping its head off. I did begin to thump the cat with my left hand ... Well, fist maybe... And did not stop until the cat released my bloody hand and dived under the couch. The cat was relocated to an outbuilding about 5 miles away. It disappeared shortly thereafter. I did not shed any tears.

Cats do NOT attack or go crazy for no reason. Someone hurt this cat at some time. If I ever caught anyone trying anything like what #1 or #2 suggested, that person would likely meet the same fate as they inflicted upon the lesser defensed, smaller creature.

I know probably more about cats and their behavior and psychology than most people. These people are not only stupid but were probably the ones who caused their own problems. I have had experience with mentally ill cats as well (sometimes its organic but often its caused by weaning too early or from abuse)...even when they can be unpredictable, they are still managable with patience and calm.

This sounds like the story that was posted some months back. That situation was definitely caused by abuse (man kicked cat after cat swatted young child who pulled its tail). People can be cruel and often don´t see it.

I hit the button too fast...I wanted to say that I think Galaxy´s diagnosis of the previous cat who attacked was incorrect. From what I had read, that cat had no history of self-mutilation or any other typical behavior of FHS, but I may not have all the information... I just have strong feelings about felines!

California Death Penalty
Unconstitutional, Federal Judge Says
New York Times, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/16/2014 5:07:45 PM     Post Reply
A federal judge in Southern California ruled Wednesday that California’s death penalty was unconstitutional. The “dysfunctional administration of California’s death penalty system,” wrote Judge Cormac J. Carney of United States District Court, has led to “inordinate and unpredictable” delays in the execution of inmates. The delays, the judge wrote, means that sentences are carried out against only “a trivial few of those sentenced to death.” In essence, he wrote, sentences by juries have been transformed to “life in prison, with the remote possibility of death.” In making his ruling, Judge Carney vacated the death sentence of

Texas actress gets 18 years
for mailing ricin to Obama
USA Today, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/16/2014 5:02:54 PM     Post Reply
A minor actress from Texas was sentenced Wednesday to 18 years in prison for sending ricin-tainted letters to President Obama, former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and the head of his gun-control group. Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, was also ordered to pay $367,000 restitution as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in December to one count of developing, producing, possessing and transferring a biological agent for use as a weapon. She bought the materials — castor bean seeds and lye — online. The FBI arrested her in June 2013 after she was indicted by a federal grand jury.

Israel agrees to

humanitarian aid into Gaza
Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

Israel agreed Wednesday to halt its airstrikes on Gaza for five hours in order to allow humanitarian aid, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday. It warns however that it will retaliate "firmly and decisively" if Hamas or other militant groups launch attacks on Israel during that time. The cease-fire request came from U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Robert Serry, Haaretz reports. After news of the cease-fire broke, Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system continued to

White House defying
aide´s congressional subpoena

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday. The White House is arguing that Obama adviser David Simas is immune from subpoena by the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into the political office that he directs. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa that the Simas subpoena threatens the constitutional separation of powers. White House lawyers spent an hour and 15 minutes Tuesday briefing the committee´s staff behind closed doors on the political office´s

A Transportation Safety Administration agent at the Orlando International Airport rejected a man’s use of his D.C. driver’s license as identification — because he had no idea where the District of Columbia was located, according to a report by WFTV. According to the news agency, Justin Gray — a D.C. resident — was flying out of the airport and attempted to use his driver’s license as his form of identification when passing through a security checkpoint. The TSA agent attending to Mr. Gray rejected the license and demanded his passport. Mr. Gray, who did not have his passport on his person, asked the agent why it was necessary,

Dozens of Disney World workers

Almost three dozen Disney theme park workers have been arrested for alleged kiddie-sex crimes since 2006, according to a broadcast report. The 35 busts have been for possession of child porn or trying to meet a minor for sex, CNN found after combing through law enforcement and court records. So far, 32 of those busted have been convicted and the other cases are pending. Two cases of child porn allegedly happened on Disney property. Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said these scary arrests represent only a tiny fraction of the company’s workforce. “Providing a safe environment for children and families is a

Paul Ryan: Immigration Bills Dead,
At Least for This Year
National Review Online, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/15/2014 7:49:16 PM     Post Reply
Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.,) has given up on passing legislation to overhaul the current immigration system because the border crisis has poisoned the political atmosphere for such an effort, at least for this year. (Snip) Ryan also summarized his view of how to resolve the border crisis. “The ultimate goal ought to be to secure the border, get the resources at the border that you need (and that’s where I think there’s a case for a supplemental; they’re burning through funds). But you’ve got to change the human trafficking law so that we’re not resettling people within the interior of the country, because all that does is create the incentive

House Passes $11 Billion
Highway Bill in Bipartisan Vote
ABC News, by John Parkinson & Jeff Zeleny    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/15/2014 7:40:06 PM     Post Reply
Washington - Behind a slight majority of Democratic votes, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives voted late this afternoon to approve a $10.8 billion short-term extension of the Highway Trust Fund. The temporary lifeline for the nation’s construction workers passed 367-55, with 186 Democrats joining 181 Republicans on the vote. The legislation, known formally as the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014, was opposed by many conservatives, with both the Club For Growth and Heritage Action pressing lawmakers to oppose the vote. Forty-five of the House Republican Conference’s most conservative

Lawmakers move to block
EPA wage-garnishing rule
Washington Times, by S.A. Miller    Original Article

Lawmakers pushed back Tuesday against the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to garnish the paychecks of accused polluters, advancing a bill that would block the new authority. The House Committee on Appropriations approved the countermeasure as a policy rider on a $30.2 billion spending bill for natural resources agencies, including the EPA, the Interior Department and U.S. Forest Service. The amendment by Rep. Tom Graves, Georgia Republican, passed the committee in a voice vote, signaling an absence of strong opposition, if not support for prohibiting the EPA from claiming authority to garnish wages to collect fines

For an unknown candidate, political campaigns are not glamorous. “I’m sick, tired, hungry and broke,” jokes Joe Carr, a Republican Senate candidate in Tennessee. (Snip) But Carr was convinced his primary challenge to Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander was primed to catch fire. The spark may have finally come last month, when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was bounced in a GOP primary by an unknown challenger named Dave Brat. The black swan upset buoyed Carr’s campaign, opening a fresh spigot of cash and prompting comparisons to the Virginia economics professor who was written off by everyone until he toppled Cantor.

Stolen uranium compounds not
only dirty bomb ingredients
within ISIS´ grasp, say experts
Fox News, by Perry Chiaramonte    Original Article

Plenty of materials for a potential dirty bomb are likely scattered throughout the area of Iraq controlled by ISIS, and pulling off an attack that spreads even a minor amount of radiation could be a huge PR coup for the terror group, experts told FoxNews.com. Last week, the Iraqi government in Baghdad warned the UN that ISIS operatives had stolen 88 pounds of uranium compounds from Mosul University. Even though many experts said the research materials were not enough to cause widespread harm, spreading fear is even more important to terrorists than a big body count, one terrorism expert said.

Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) may have captured as many as 52 U.S.-made M198 howitzers in their march across Iraq in June. “They shouldn’t have too much trouble shelling large area targets like a city if they have sufficient ammo,” Jeremy Binnie of the British military consultancy HIS Janes toldMcClatchy news service Monday. The artillery weapons, which cost roughly $500,000 each, include GPS aiming systems. Mr. Binnie told McClatchy that the Islamic terrorist organization would have a difficult time figuring out exactly how to use the technology’s pinpoint accuracy, but that members would still be able
