This happened last night - pretty weird event really.
I was passing a ghey SUV on the inside of two lanes when suddenly a black and white puss cat runs at full pace from the far lane, right in front of me.
Even with a deft swerve to avoid him, the little guy catches my right guard, gets belted well hard and sprawls into the gutter. I stop and run back to help him where the gay SUV dude has stopped too. He is pretty fukced up, his right paw is at some dodgy angles and he has a big scrape on his face.
So I guess I won our first encounter.

I wrap him in a blanket, get him in the WRX and take some directions to get to a 24hr animal shelter from the gay dude.
Once I get him there, he has somehow gotten from the rear compartment and is now under my passenger seat.
I stick my head down there to have a look, and give him a gentle prod to let him know Im there. (All this time Im thinking he is almost dead)
From this point, he comes out from the seat, and proceeds to avoid me for the next 3 minutes by frantically scratching his way around the inside of my WRX like a hornet in a beer can.
Finally he gets up under my brake pedal, and as I open the drivers door to get a hold of him, he splits, through my legs and is gone, that fukced up foot looking pretty good as he sprints away.
I now have cat fur and scratches all over the inside of my WRX.

So I got owned in our second race - couldnt catch him for the life of me.
Next time I'll have better mods. Cat food and a bag.

Good to hear that there are still people out there that will go out of their way to help out another living being. Seems like everyone is in too much of a hurry to lift a finger.

Good thing it wasn't reeeeeaaaally pissed. Even a small cat can put a hurtin on you before you can even blink.
Man...you ain't never lied! 10 years ago...when my son was born...my in-laws were in town. My wife's sister came with them. She had a baby about 3 weeks earlier, and the baby was with them. Well, the in-laws arrive at the house to see our new baby, and my Father-in-law walks in holding my Sister-in-laws new baby...who was hungry, and crying. We had a young cat...maybe 6 months old. Good cat, too. But, something about the baby's crying freaked him out. As my Sister-in-law was standing at the kitchen sink...running hot water over a baby bottle to warm it up...my cat attacked her. He grabbed ahold of her legs and started biting and kicking with his back claws...as cats do when they fight. She knocks the sucker across the kitchen, but he comes flying back at her. By this time, I'm in the kitchen, and I grabbed the cat and threw him in the garage. When I come back in the house, I see my Sister-in-laws legs bleeding like you wouldn't believe! We took her to the Hospital, where they proceded to put in 75 stitches, and 3 shunts to drain the bone-deep wounds in both her legs. Keep in mind, this was a young, small cat...probably less than 3 pounds in weight. I'd hate to see what a 50 pound cat could do to someone...

best part of the story right there. :rotfl:

Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law though. That must have sucked.

Yeah...she spent the majority of her Saturday in the Emergency Room. She wasn't real happy to say the least...

BTW...we had to get rid of the cat...as we had a new baby of our own in the house, and couldn't take a chance that he'd freak again and maul the baby, or one of us. So...we gave him to our Vet, who says he's been a great cat ever since. *shrugs*

You're a good man archiebrown. :D

I agree. Any animal running out in front of me is my worst nightmare. I'm glad the cat at least survived. My old boss died (R.I.P. :( ) in a car crash a few years back swerving to miss a rabbit on a highway in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately he wasn't wearing a seatbelt. :confused:

Anyways, I love animals and will do anything to help or save one, but if it's them or me.....:(

my lil brother got his arms ravaged trying to bring my cat back in the house.
(he's not an outdoor cat)
cat freaked out thinking their dog was still in the doorway, and shredded my bro's arms and hands getting away.

if it had been me, my cat would still be outside to this day.

how come the SUV and the driver were gay?
I dont know if this is just an Australian thing, but the gay community has this gay pride thing where they identify themselves (nay proclaim) by putting a rainbow sticker on their car, or shop door or letterbox etc. So, this SUV has a rainbow sticker on the back of it, and when the guy gets out, he is as camp as a row of tents.
In retrospect: the fact he bats for the other team is probably superficial to the story - he did stop and help out, so he was cool in that sense.
I have attached an example rainbow sticker below if anyone wants to put one on their WRX.
