How much torture can a cat take from a six year old? Usually, he will take a lot from his best friend…BUT SOMETIMES….CatMan Jack Sparrow has to shoot a warning shot across the bow!
Our cat Bruiser has been dressed up in doll clothes, topped with a crown, hit with pillows, kicked (by accident), stepped on (because he’s a daredevil), and held like a little baby at times. This cat is 20 pounds and he will not put up with crap from anyone….except Isabella.
The other night, Isabella was rough housing with Bruiser and he finally had enough. He turned toward Bella and scratched her face over her eye. Now, I am at work and get the call from Kas…”you may need to come home so we can take Isabella to the hospital…Don’t freak out but her eye is bleeding where Bruiser scratched her.” WHAT? Don’t freak out? OK…I freaked out! All I saw in my head was blood gushing from a half hanging out eyeball and my GOD! She may never see again or even be deformed in some way permanently! So I rush home….run up the stairs and everyone is lying on the bed around my daughter who has a cloth over her eye. She seems really calm…so I slowly remove the cloth to see this mess that I expected to see….and……………………..there is a little bitty scratch under her eye on her cheek where the blood was coming from…her eye was not even touched and Bruiser was hanging out by her watching cartoons on the TV…..I guess CatMan Jack Sparrow decided that she would get another warning shot across the bow…FOR NOW!
