This year's African migration got a bit out of control.

That cat has a "what did I do?" look on its face.

I thought they were non-migratory?

Of course being an African American cat, it was jailed.

Oh see, I thought this story was about cougars biting their dates.

Boy, was I wrong.

I'm thinking for every Fark thread, it can be correlated to a Python sketch.


Funny, "pythonesque" is a bit cliched now.

Let me tell you something, my lad. When you're walking home tonight and some homicidal maniac comes after you with a bunch of loganberries, don't come crying to me.

What a large African cat may look like.
 
2021-04-19 2:12:22 PM  
My mom had one of those.  It was just a cat.

Certainly not on the slutty end of the affectionate-aloof spectrum, but still just a cat.

It was probably freaked out less by the fire than it was by all the large hoomans with funny clothes and big hats arriving on a big screaming truck, barging into the house, and making lots of noise.

Shouldn't they have taken the firefighter to see a doctor first before locking him up in a cage?

Mind you, cat bites can be pretty nasti.

FTA:

Officials estimated the cat weighed 60 to 70 pounds, though the cats typically only weigh up to 40 pounds in the wild.

Sounds like he was used to being overfed.

I thought that this was going to say "firefighter bitten by a large African spider" so when it said "cat" I said, "Whew, it was just a cat."

Clark County is in Washington, not Oregon, subby.
 
2021-04-19 3:20:11 PM  
Not Oregon. Clark County is on the other side of the river.

/Also, this is not only in Clark County, but Felida... it's right there in the name. Don't say you weren't warned.

Depends on the state, probably, but they're used to create Savannahs which is my dream cat.  At $16,000, it's going to stay a dream cat.

Yeah. You can, they're basically like a maine coon, but a little less domesticated. Which is to say, essentially feral, because, well, its a cat.

So, it's birthday present is salmonella?

Or are cats fine with eating raw poultry?

Most cats don't cook meat out on the savanna.

That's how my dad found out a Guinea pig can bite right through a firefighters glove if scared enough.

/His father and my grandfather put heavy duty batteries in a battery recharger.
// Heavy duty because it was the 70's.
/// Dad went back into the fire for the kittens and says that's the stupidest thing we ever did.
 
2021-04-19 4:05:22 PM  
Is it a Serval or Savannah cat?  They're not the same thing.  Serval is a straight-up wild cat.  Savannah is a domesticated cross-breed, usually several generations removed from an actual Serval.
