This story comes from my past. Way back when I was just a tiny ghostie and not the repsac I am now.
At the time, my family lived in Brookhaven Mississippi. (the state is key.)
One day, I remember going with my dad and mom to the local TG&Y store. As dad pulled into the parking lot, we notice this pick up truck sitting in the lot. No biggie right? Well there happened to be a large group of people staring at the truck.
Or rather it wasn't the truck, but the cat up on the roof. This cat would paw at anyone that walked past, tended to lie up there purring, and while cute most vowed not to go near the vehicle. Apparently, kitty had gotten out of the cab of the truck through the window and wormed his way up on to the cab. To be honest, he looked quite happy about things.
The police arrived, took one look at the cat and called for the owner to come out and get Kitty down. Kitty wasn't hurting anyone, but yes it was freaking people out. The guy was really nice, and kitty turned out to be a big kitten (figuratively speaking). In fact, when kitty got down the first thing he did was walk over and begin to do figure eights around the officer, purring the whole time. Much to the horror of the cop.
Reading the story about the Pit Bull reminded me of kitty (I really think that was his name) and the little scene he caused. It brings a smile to my face to think that one little cat could cause so much trouble.
Oh, I bet you're wondering why they reacted like that?
Well this was the kind of cat kitty was: http://www.exoticcatz.com/photoalbum...year%20old.jpg
In short. Kitty was a mountain lion. He was also a BIG BABY!
