Re: very OT - close call w/ a pit bull

A pit bull and he lets it loose? Thank goodness Sugar realistically weighed her chances and skeedaddled. But even for you, a pit bull could have done much more damage. I once had to protect Orangecat from a huge manic stray that we had befriended. It just went whacko and attacked him. I picked OC up to protect him and the stray actually climbed it's way up me to get at him. Very disturbing - and painful. If it had been a pit bull instead of a cat, the consequences might have been dire.

Stay on this. Insist on filing a police report. Take a picture of the bruise. Get this stuff in writing with a case number on it. If anything else happens you will have a history.

Subject: [CHAT] very OT - close call w/ a pit bull

Well, the useless neighbor next door's pit bull tried to get my baby
tonight. I jumped in between them and Sugar had the good sense to
high-tail it around the other side of the house. Idiot boy refused to
answer his door so I called the sheriff's office trying to get Animal
Control. No one on duty tonight. I told the dispatcher you got a pit bull
loose now and it won't wait until 6am tomorrow. I've got a nice bruise on
my shin from where the dog plowed into me trying to get her but no other
injuries saints be praised. As usual, the law came out and did nothing
much. Trash boy just went peeling out of here all hacked off. He's got no
cause, thank you. I'm still so agitated my hands are shaking.
Sorry, just needed to tell someone who gave a flip because no one around
here does. I could just scream.

thanks for listening y'all.
