Sponsored Video: My cat from hell!

Have you seen this new show called My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet? They are cutting right to the chase with that title, aren’t they? From the looks of this promotional picture, it looks pretty accurate though.

My Cat From Hell

Luckily, my cats are NOT from H-E-double-hockey-sticks, but I know that there are cats with some major attitude out there!

My parents have a cat with a pretty mean disposition and there is an instance in My Cat From Hell video below where someone says, “Can’t I just pet you?” It totally reminded me of trying to pet my mom’s meanie-pants cat! Of course, my mom would tell you that her cat (Punkin’) is a sweetheart, but the rest of us know that she would sooner bite you than look at you!

My Cat From Hell: New Episodes

The crazy-bad cats in Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell have lashed out for their last time!

Find out if animal behaviorist Jackson Galaxy can change the bad attitudes of these cats from hell through his custom techniques on all new episodes of My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet, Saturdays at 8pm e/p.

Have you ever met a cat with a bad attitude? Was it as mean as the cats in this video?

    OMG I need to see this show!! Thankfully my cats aren’t cats from hell, but I my aunt’s cat, Nippy was. He was vicious and would attack my ankles everytime I moved!

    How funny and ironic! My cousin’s cat, also named Pumpkin, is probably the meanest cat I’ve come across yet! Of course my cousin swears up and down the cat is just ‘misunderstood.’ Misunderstood my butt!

    I just find it funny that these people even try to get near their pets; if a cat was biting and scratching me, I wouldn’t go back for a second time to try to pet it again o.O

    I had one of these one time. He was the cat from hell from 4 weeks old when he would in one leap jump on the chest of drawers from the floor. He would literally “skate” down our arms with his claws bared. He was hell on wheels, and a coworker of mine too him to a farm to be a mouser. Idk what his issue was but he was possessed, and I don’t believe in the devil :D

    I had a cat who was sometimes as mean as those shown. He had a reason to be mean. He was a beautiful black long haired cat brought to a rescue group with his litter mate, Teddy. Teddy was adopted; he was left behind. They determined that he had entropion, a condition more common in dogs where the eyelashes turn in and scrape the eyeball. They brought him to a vet and had surgery on one eye. I agreed to foster him while he was recovering with a cone around his head. He was feisty, unhappy and mean to me and my two other cats. His name was Mickie but I thought that was not dignified enough for a cat of his stature so I called him Miclan (mee-clan).
    After his eye healed I brought him back to the vet for a check up. The vet pronounced him cured. I disagreed and pointed out that he still squinted with his other eye and that it, too, needed surgery. He disagreed saying that Miclan was just lazy. Talk about anthropomorphic!
    When I had to move I contacted the rescue group. No one had expressed any interest in him and if I wanted him he was mine. So he became part of my household.
    I moved to a village and, when I brought him in for his checkup, I talked about his eye. I was told there was no problem, nothing to be done.
    Later I moved to a different village; when I brought him in for a check up I didn’t talk about his eye – nothing to be done, right?
    After his exam, the vet told me that he had entropion and would benefit from surgery. Of course I consented but he had been suffering for so long that, even though he was now without pain, pain had already adversely affected his personality.
    He did not often consent to be petted or brushed and would be physical in his displearure. Sometimes, though, not only could I pet him but I could also stroke his stomach. He always had enough before I did and I would suffer wounding.
    My newspaper delivery woman told me that he had swiped his claws across her leg from under a chair while she was delivering my paper. She was notorious for gossip that was often not true so I ignored her. Her husband approached me soon after and threatened me that if THAT CAT hurt his wife again he would shoot it. We live in Canada where guns are not commonplace and any incident would bring police who would not be tolerant! Thankfully there was no other incident.

    My cat purrs, rubs against my legs and sleeps on my lap and seems to love me, but he sporadically attacks me viciously, tacklingy legs and biting. I don’t know why, and five minutes later he might be back on my lap looking for loving. Any ideas?
