Stray Cat Attacks Woman
It started with a good-hearted woman from Melvin, Michigan, taking in a stray cat that she named Buddy. Unfortunately, all does not end well for the woman or Buddy.
When the Melvin, Michigan woman named Maxx, took in the stray cat this summer, she simply was trying to be nice and said that Buddy was “as sweet as pie”. However, when Maxx tried to protect her mother’s dog from Buddy, many think she got what she deserved.
Security cameras rolled as Maxx tries to shoo Buddy away from her mother’s dog, and even kicks snow at him to get him to leave the dog alone. But that’s when Buddy decides that he has had enough. Looking a little like Superman, Buddy leaps at Maxx’s head and attacks her. Sinking his front and back teeth into Maxx’s forehead, Buddy manages to wrestle the woman to the ground. But not before Buddy creates quite a gash on Maxx’s head while clawing her face and cheeks.
Your first reaction was to get him off and when I went to go pull, I could feel his teeth.
The Michigan woman did end up in the hospital after the cat attack with an infection that caused Maxx to develop cellulitis, causing her face to swell.
Because of the attack, county officials let Maxx know that they had to determine if Buddy had rabies. And to do that test, Buddy would have to be put down. Maxx said,
When they came to get him I couldn’t even watch because even though he did that to me, I couldn’t see them take him away because I knew what they were going do to him.
Maxx does admit that she is the owner of three other cats, continues to love her cats and would definitely take in another stray cat if she had to.
