They have been mistreated by their humans one too many times.FTA: It caused deep gashes on the legs of its owner's 10-year-old brotherYep. There's the problem. Kids are assholes to pets, even if they're not trying to be mean. Sometimes the animals get fed up with it. When I was a kid, I yanked on my cat's tail, and she shredded my hand. I learned my lesson, and my parents didn't tell the farking news about it.This. The cat was supposedly "owned" by a child, not the parents. This is a recipe for disaster, particularly with little boys, who are by nature hyperactive savages with a cruel streak a mile wide. I know cats can go nuts, just like people can, but my suspicions lean toward the cat coming to an end of its patience.Exactly. And it sucks to see parents immediately jump to the conclusion that the animal "went nuts" and is dangerous when that kind of thing happens. It's much more productive to patch the kid up and say, "That's what happens when you're mean. So be nice."
