Mundell, his nephew and his wife, are being treated for rabies. His wife wasn't bitten, but got the animal's blood on her

There goes $150k down the drain. Staying alive is expensive, getting snake antivenom is a lil cheaper.

Sounds like they pinned it down with a gun by shooting it. Perhaps it was near death. If it was really rabid it wouldn't have much left in it. But then the "no touchy" goes up to 11. I have some ferral cats on my farm. If I need to catch one, I corner it and use a fish net. I've got a really good landing net. Presuming it ran outside then for some reason was still in the yard, that probably means it was near death. They might have just done something like throw a tarp over it.

Bobcats are extemely wary & secretive animals that usually stay the hell away from people & houses, the fact that it went into the garage is not normal behaviour.

Dude... wait.... what?


Okay, I hope this isn't spamming but it's really important to me, so here goes.

I know the owner of the original "Dude... Wait, what?" kitten. The cat's name is Oliver Donovan, and he has a Facebook page you can like for updates. He's only seven years old, but he's dying of congestive heart failure. There's a calendar you can buy with proceeds going to pay for his vet bills - I won't link it here so as not to spam, but you can find it by looking for "Oliver Donovan calendar". His owner has had a really rough time this year - Oliver was diagnosed as dying, she had a sudden, tragic death in the family, and then another cat died unexpectedly - and any help would be appreciated.


On another note, I feel like I should make a UK joke here, but I can't think of one.

I have serious reservations about whether I would survive a bobcat attack if I wandered into my garage and one leaped into my face.

First off, I have way too much stuff in my garage, and when it leaps at me, it would probably cause a cascade of various garage detritus, and I'd probably go ass over teakettles into a collection of rakes and ladders and shovels and then become trapped between the snowblower and the generator.

The stuff I land in would probably do more damage than the bobcat.... and then I'd be rolling around a pile of equipment and machinery with a bobcat attached to me.

I should seriously clean my garage in case the rest of this bobcat's family wanders 15 miles east.

No, I found an account it was better than I remembered. It ran in and bit him, and he couldn't get its fangs out of his side, so he strangled it with his bare hands.

(semi) related CSB:
Dad always left the windows down when the car was in the garage to "vent it out." He inadvertently left the garage door open one night. The next morning he's headed out to start his pre-dawn commute and finds a pissed-off owl on the passenger floor board. So he grabbed by T-Ball bat and

stuck it in the car like a perch for the owl, who happily jumped on, then took off with a single flap of its wings and disappeared silently into that dark morning.

I have an ordinary housecat who is the best companion imaginable, except on very rare occasions when he flips out.  I think he's kitty schizoid or something.  This is only when he's let out of the house, apparently (we don't let him out any more).  The last time it happened, I had to go put on a heavy coat and gloves to pick him up; he was a crazed, feral animal at that point, terrified and apparently unable to recognize who I was.  He nailed me, right through the glove, sank a fang right into my thumb down to the bone.  Fortunately, at that point, he stopped biting, although he was still hissing and writhing for all he was worth.

I sure as hell would not want to think about dealing with a cat twice his size.  Your brother had better hope that cat doesn't have any psychotic episodes.

I have a cat who was declawed before we got her, so she learned to bite. She's also blind in one eye and easily startled when approached on that side. Last time I took her to the vet, I told the vet tech all this and suggested repeatedly that she muzzle her, as they usually do at the vet. She said she'd be fine. She promptly tried to give the cat a shot on her blind side. Before I realized what was happening, she was bleeding. She had to go to the hospital and my cat had to be quarantined for ten days.

The cat was feral and basically as crazy as Hannibal Lecter when we got her. She's actually a really sweet cat now, as long as you pay attention to her body language and respect her blind side. (It took about a year for me to figure out she was blind, though. I thought she was just a psycho.)

He was one of those "animal husbandry" types where he had what ever permit or license to take care of wild animals. He's had just about everything at one time or another. The bobcat was nothing but a kitten when it was given over to him. As I said above, he got his fair share of scratches and bites from it, but no more or no less than anything else he had around there in all the years he's done that.

When I was a teenager some friends of mine and I accidentally live trapped a bobcat. Amazing animal. Gorgeous eyes. It emitted this sort of electric energy is the best way I can describe it. We played this game where one of us would try to place a copenhagan can on the cage (hey, you had to know this was a redneck story). Every time the cat would flick the can away right before we could set it down. You wouldn't even see her (?) paw move. Thirty-five years later I'm still surprised we took her back to woods and let her go. We really wanted to skin her, but she was just too cool of an animal to kill.

Ahhh...came in here to say the same thing.  1979 Mercury Bobcat, white with red trim along the bottom.  Inexplicable mudflaps.  Installed my own sunroof from one bought from the J.C. Whitney catalog. The car was the prototype for modern-day car subwoofers - two homemade 12" speaker stage monitors shoved into the back, hooked up to a cheap amp and equalizer.   Loudest car in the high school parking lot, thank you very much.

DROxINxTHExWIND: DeathCipris: fappomatic: I've hunted bobcats. What did they pin it down with? a truck?
Those things are fur-covered chainsaws.

This. Seriously, how the hell did they pin that thing down? I am honestly curious.

I watched a video this past weekend of a guy with balls of steel...or no brain (depending on your position) pinning a bobcat down with a damn stick to help it out of a trap.

I just finished the post-exposure rabies series: $18,000

(Was trying to get my dogs away from a raccoon and it bit my big toe. If you think white boys can't dance, you should have seen me. And I'm so glad there was no one around to hear how high-pitched my voice can get.)

We have a Redbone Coonhound and regular "Critter standoff events" are the norm around here. So far no bites although I did have a raccoon bypass the dog and confront me for a few seconds. I had to check my drawers when I came in the house after that one.

My Redbone "Bella" has delivered, to me: a raccoon, possum, black snake, countless squirrels, bumble bees. I fully expect her to drag a deer onto the porch. If she does, I'm thinking she'll be ready for the big woods.

Sounds about like "Hayley". Her specialty is chipmunks. She gets about 4 or 5 every spring and summer. She definitely has a talent for catching them.

wow... I hope they are going to be OK... Rabies is a scary thing... Even with the vaccinations some people die from rabies.
