Chance encounter with rouge cat that lurks outside my front door....


This story is about the 'wild' cat who linger in the bushes near the home of the Rambler. A Rambler who walks with her anxiety purse full of worries and drama.

It was a sunny day and Rambler decided it was time for Woof Woof's walk. Time to explore what was beyond the front door. So off we went.

A little pee here.

A little pee there. (Woof Woof, not me)

Wave at neighbor. (Rambler thinks "God, did I forget to put my bra on? Again!")

It was going as expected. Woof Woof was content. Leaving his mark on every.single.tree.possible.

And out of nowhere a ninja black cat flies out of bush of oblivion and onto Woof Woof's back. (No sheeshing you guys....SERIOUSLY!)

Rambler kicks crazy ninja cat off Woof Woof.

Crazy ninja cat attacks Rambler (Oh yes)

Woof Woof turns from little 17 pound dog into some freakish Freddy Kruger Nightmare on Elm Street and attacks crazy ninja cat while it takes one last swipe at Woof Woof while Rambler tries freaked outedly (my new word) to shake off crazy ninja cat.

It decides it's had enough and declaws itself from Ramblers leg and hisses scarier then a cobra snake at Woof Woof. And takes off.

Rambler picks up Woof Woof and runs for her life back to her front door where she frantically calls boyfriend (now husband) at work. He comes home to investigate. Rambler stays behind and just peers out the window. She wishes him Godspeed. And maybe he should wear some kind of protective armor.

Just in case.

Sherlock boyfriend comes home heated and spits out a neighbor feeds stray ninja cats and that ninja cat was only protecting her young and so attacked. And accused Woof Woof and Rambler of causing hate and discontent in the common area. Can you believe it?

The proper channels were then taken. Not much happened except Humane Society placing cages around and dirty looks between crazy neighbor lady feeding cats and Team Ramblers home.

They still lurk. Even years later. Ninja cat has birthed many new generations of new rouge cats. Woof Woof pleads for a rematch.....but not on Ramblers watch.

It's just safer that way.

TOO FUNNY!

DiPaola Momma said...

You must first learn to hear the thoughts of your foe oh grasshopper... "Give me tuna fish, and nobody gets hurt"... be the cat, and you will no longer suffer the wrath of the feline.. ha ha

andy said...

Bahahahahahahahaha!

Ha!

Seriously, that is the most I have laughed at a post since Cate's one on her cats.

You have an awesome knack for story telling. Frig. And I like the new catch phrase "freaked outedly". I'll try to use it in my post today...but don't worry, I'll give credit where credit is due my friend:)

MammaDucky said...

I would have to give the ninja cat a few points for the fashionable ninja headband.
See, excercise (walking) is dangerous, which is why I avoid it at all costs.

Penz said...

My daughter read this with me right now. She was laughing. I can't stop. How crazy is that! That is a memory that you will always have. Does the lady still give you the look of death? Like the picture too. Cute. Have a great weekend there cookie. :)

Muppet Soul said...

OH. MY.

All is not right in the animal kingdom, no sir.

My biggest question is who bravely drugged their cat long enough to get him to wear that on his head?!?

Alexis AKA MOM said...

OMG I so needed a laugh and that was just perfect. Rember that move Cat's and Dogs and the ninja cats? That is all I can see ... LOL

MommyAmy said...

lol, omg...

I think I would have totally flipped out!

Grant Miller said...

Ninja cats are the worst.

Karen said...

What a crazy cat!

My cat used to play hide and seek. Which is hilarious at 3 in the afternoon. Not so much at 3 in the morning.

Tooj said...

I love it. LOL Ninja cat was just being protective. Even if Ninja cat was wrong in her assessment. Love the picture.

K said...

I live with a crazy ninja cat.

(Definitely not my brighest move.)

Megan said...

OMGoodness! Hahahhaha lmao!!

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

See we were meant to be BBF's! You have a crazy cat lady too! Why won't people stop feeding the strays?! It drives me bonkers! I can't believe a cat attacked you. I can honestly say that I have never heard of "When Cats Attack". heehee

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

My friend told me ther eis a cat on the Koko head trail that attacks people and dogs.

The wild cats where I live are tame and love BC. They follow him around like he is their leader.

Mrs4444 said...

I hate psycho cats. Other cats are cool, but the psycho ones? Too psycho!

blunt delivery said...

1. my cat sits in the sink all day waiting for just ONE drop of water to come out. he's a mental case.

2. congrats on SITS

Jamie said...

And this is why I too am a dog person.....My dog even though she's only 26 pounds would make mince meat out of that cat.

Have a great SITS day!

San said...

Hahaha! Awesomely funny post!

Laura said...

Rambler you rock!

Java Cupcake said...

ROFLMAO @ Crazy Ninja Cat!!!

Dan River Mama said...

Dropping by from SITS. I hate crazy cats! I happen to live with one and have the scars to prove it!

Ali said...

A cat made the mistake of getting in our fenced in backyard once. Poor cat. My Siberians let it know that it was not welcome there.

Cindy said...

Now I remember why I'm a dog lover! Love the picture of ninja cat!

Mindyleigh said...

I'm in hysterics!! That just about killed me.

Yaya said...

That is an awesome story!

We have a house in our neighborhood w/ some ninja cats who don't back down to my TWO dogs that are 75 pounds and 45 pounds!

Housewife Savant said...

Happy SITS day. How cool is it that I've lurked your blog before?
Would it still be cool if I told you I'm the lady who chases hostile neighborhood strays with a [harmless] gun loaded w/rubber pellets? or would fellow bloggers blackball me?
Just to be safe, I won't mention it.

sandy said...

Ha! Cats are crazy! And I do believe that every neighborhood has a crazy cat lady. Mine Does!

What A Card said...

Crazy cat! Hee!

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Wow, not many have encountered Crazy Ninja Cats and lived to tell the tail/tale....ha ha ha I crack myself up.

I have two of the sweetest (OK, if not seriously annoying from time to time) cats around. Huge Maine Coons. Occasionally though, they give me a certain "look" and I know that deep beneath that soft, furry exterior lurks the heart of a Ninja cat. My ankles bear the scars.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Yikes! Glad you survived your close encounter.

Pam said...

Happy SITS day! What a "wild" story. Very funny!

carma said...

I'd steer clear of those crazy ninja cats - fer sure!

Wifey said...

Wax on. Wax off.

Love the picture.

Winks & Smiles,
Wifey

Janna Bee said...

I'm totally going to have nightmares about Ninja Cats. I should tell my son about the Ninja cat. He is into cats and karate right now....

On second thought, no I don't want a four year old boy/ninja cat hyprid running around my house.

Too funny- love the picture too!

Songbirdtiff said...

So funny! We have cats that live in the bushes around our house, too. We call them the bush kitties. Now I'm thankful that they are more afraid of us than we are of them.

BlogBaby said...

And that's why we're getting a BIG DOG and not a cat!

Connie Weiss said...

I've always been fairly sure that most cats could rouge at any moment!

So funny!

Moi said...

yikes! its like an episode of When Animals Attack!

Stereos and Souffles said...

Cats can be scarier than dogs!
How crazy!

Cindy said...

OMG that is hilarious! Happy SITS Day!

Cammie said...

How is it that I have been reading you for some time now and never came across this bit of fabulousness?
Happy SITS day!

Joy said...

I'm glad no one was hurt by ninja cat. Hopefully someone can capture her and have her spayed.

Congrats on your SITS feature :o)

becca greene said...

lol visiting from sits. rouge cats are outrageous.

Oz Girl said...

Quite funny ... we have feral cats here in the countryside that sometimes will attack our cats, so you just know what hubby does then... but feral cats CAN be dangerous! Happy SiTS day!

Laura said...

Creepy! Cats drive me crazy. My in-laws have two. Yuck.

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

There is a crazy black male cat that roams our neighborhood. It jumped into our back yard only once and came nose to nose with our 2 lab mixes. Needless to say he didn't come back!

Happy SITS Day!

Willo said...

And this is reason 235890 I don't have cats. :)

Kelly Deneen said...

How terrible!

And funny! hehe.

My New 30 said...

LOL I about fell out of my chair when I saw that cat with a headband on!! My cats would NEVER fly with that.

I had a bird swoop on me like that once. I assume I got too close to a nest. It's all about motherhood folks - well, you know how we are with our 'young.'

C'mon now y'all - cats are sweet. I've had cats all my life and never had one weird out on me. The two I have right now I rescued from being abandoned and they are a sweet as can be. But feral cats that have long been living in the wild - well they can be totally crazy. Best to call animal control when you spot one.

Happy SITS Day!

Astrid said...

Yikes! Crazy cat!!!

Happy SITS day!

Wolf said...

haha! i love that picture. and yeah, cats are psycho sometimes. mine just run out of nowhere and attack your feet sometimes while you are on the stairs. i wonder if they are trying to cause an "accident..."

happy SITS day!

"FINE"al thoughts... said...

See! This is exactly why I've never liked cats and will never. ever. own. one! Sorry to all you cat lovers out there...they're just not for me!

Libby said...

LOLOL! Ninja kitty. LOVE it. Makes me miss my black cat Charlotte, she was my best friend, my familiar :)

Melissa said...

How crazy! My sister has a cat that goes psycho like that sometimes too!

Vickie said...

Cats scare the poop out of me! I would be running for my life too. Many years ago, in the middle of the night there were a bunch of cats fighting outside my bedroom window. I woke my then boyfriend, now husband, to make sure they can not get in.

Happy SITS day!

tammy said...

I would have freaked outedly, too! ;) Funny story. Although at the time...probably not so funny, eh?

Rachel said...

First of all, let me thank you for putting on clean panties today... I know it can sometimes be a challenge. Secondly, I find my self wondering if "Ninja Cat," knows "Spaghetti Cat?" HUMMMM

lifesbeengood said...

We are a house of four cats, two dogs, 2 guinea pigs, and too many fish to count... so I completely understand. We have our own occasional ninja kitty living within our dwelling.

Happy SITS Day!

Controlling My Chaos said...

Cats have minds of their own, don't they? Congrats on your SITS day.

Brandy said...

Ninja cat...again LMAO!

Happy SITS day!

Industrioushead said...

Great post; I like the picture.

Sam_I_am said...

omg, that is crazy insane. My 60lb pitbull would have pissed in his fur.. if he wouldn't have left it all over every tree along the way.

Daisigirl said...

Funny stuff! I brought home a fluffy puppy for my daughter once and accidentally got between a mother cat and her kittens. She jumped on me and the puppy and well...it was not the pleasant scene I had envisioned for my sweet daughter. Crazy! Happy SITS Day!

Marrdy said...

Hey, I could be that crazy cat lady. I would feed every cat i the world if I could.

Kasey said...

Oh I had to laugh at that. Our pup experienced her first cat this past weekend. One hiss from the cat and she was a little wimp, tail between her legs and she was running for cover.

Denise said...

We used to have wild cats by a house I lived in while in Tennessee. Those cats were freaky!

Mammatalk said...

Hats off! Very well written. Love the anxiety purse full of worries and drama. I think I have one of those,too. Fabulous!

Mom Taxi Julie said...

OH.MY.GOSH. that was too funny!

blissfullychaotic said...

hahahaha! Very well written!

Glad you weren't harmed to bad :)

Lea Ann said...

maybe you and woof woof should take some tai kwan do lessons, just in case.

hellosweetworld said...

I got attacked by a cat once and ever since then, i really think they're out to get us humans. Really. It's true.

foxy gal said...

Ok, let me just say that i had the same thing happen (almost). Crazy cat attacked my 3 lb chihuahua when we were on a walk... tried to carry her off for dinner! After several futile attempts to get the cat off, I finally had to PUNT IT back into the bushes! All the while, my chi baby is SCREAMING at the top of her lungs! It was absolutely horrible and I feel the pain you went thru...

Glad I found your blog thru SITS... very cute all around! :)

coco-ono said...

scary.

Donnetta said...

Yet another reason to ban cats from the world. EESSH!!!

Brave Woof Woof!

Happy SITS day!

Mathea said...

Happy SITS Day, love the story!

Goldibug said...

Great story! I couldn't help but laugh!

Linda Hughes said...

Luv Luv Luv your writing style!Happy SITS Day!

Jacky said...

Another reason not to like cats! =) Happy SITS day!

Shell said...

Poppin in from SITS! Congrats on being the FB today!

Can I just say that the pic of the ninja kitty looks totally like our cat, Ziggy?! Of course, he'd probably bust some ninja moves on me if I tried to put a headband on him. But, anyway...

I'm a Honolulu born gal...I haven't been back since we moved in 1986 and I miss HI so very much!

I do remember all of the stray cats -- we lived in Navy housing and they.were.everywhere. How funny that back then they scared the heebie jeebies outta me and now I own (well, I am owned by) 3 cats.

Hilarious rogue cat story!!!

StampinMom said...

Oh poor Woof Woor (and team Rambler, tee hee). I dislike crazy cats too. There is one that tries to attack me and my pups when we take walks. Sad thing is, it's actually being walked by it's owner...so wierd!

Jamie :-)

TattooedMinivanMom said...

I'm so not a cat person for this very reason.

Craftymoose Crafts said...

No cat fan here! Bit once by one & not going back!

Just say Julie said...

hahahaha! I love that photo, and can totally see the entire episode. Too much, woman, too much!

AP said...

haha sounds like my cat!! HAPPY SITS day, come by my blog, got some giveaways going on

Jennifer said...

THAT is so funny! Not that you and your dog were attacked but you have a way of telling it that is hilarious.

hotpants™ said...

I'm so glad this post was picked. It cracked me up the first time around.

Mariel said...

I used to have a ninja cat when I was little. It would hide and when I would come looking for it, she would jump out whack my cheeks with her paws and bite my nose. I was traumatized forever more and haven't had a cat since!

Great post.

Alex the Girl said...

Did it wax on...wax off?

cath said...

what a lovely introduction to your world!! looking forward to reading more ...

The Mom said...

Congrat's on your SITS day ... I am sooo not a cat lover so I'm sorry you had a run in with a stinkin' ninja version of one! Glad Woof Woof was ok in the end though!

Lida said...

Oh yes some cats can be a bit psychotic tell me about it I have 51!
Congratulations for being SITS of the day!

Juliet Grossman said...

Love the accompanying ninja cat pic:-)

Cher said...

This is so funny! What a weird thing to have happen! Congrats on SITS feature blogger!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Very cleverly written...I hope Woof Woof is okay!

Makeup Theory said...

This is so funny. I can't believe the cat simply jumped on your dog's back. I, personally, find cats FAR more interesting than dogs, but this cat needed meds.

the BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

Whoa...ninja cats...there's nothing worse! Have a great day!

Mimi said...

I wonder where the ninja cat found the tiny headband??

WildfireBelle said...

And dogs STILL bark at cats. So much for Jung's collective unconscious.

Leslie said...

crazy ninja cat! gotta love 'em!

N said...

too funny. :-)

Rocksee said...

Hahaha..

this was a great story..
I started to laugh out loud and my co worker gave me a pretty funny look.

:)

Michelle said...

I kept waiting to hear where the blushing cat was going to come out ;) But wow. I feel for you. My cat when I was younger once attacked a friend's two dogs -- BIG dogs, mind you -- and blood was shed. By the dogs. It was not easy to get my poor kitty off those dogs invading her territory!

jubilee said...

There are few things worse than a crazy cat, for sure. BG

Gamma Sharon said...

That is just to funny! Congrats on being the FB!

greedygrace said...

LOL!

Happy SITS Day!

Funny in my mind said...

Don't like cats. You can carry a squirt bottle of sorts. Fill it with vinegar and spray it at the cat whenever you go out. It will get the hint!

Sparcam said...

When cats go bad....they go really bad! Love a cat, but he stays in the house unless I go out with him!

Ryan and Katie said...

I hate stray cats!

Laura said...

Cats can be so unpredictable.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Gah! We have stray cats here, too. They've never attacked me. I'm not sure what I'd do if they did.

C.G. the Foodie said...

Funny! Cats really do have minds of their own!

Kate said...

Here from SITS, late as usual. Oh my word, I just posted about insane psycho ninja-peeing cats. Coincidence.....

Cristin said...

Visiting from SITS...

Like I needed another reason to dislike Cats....

Katy said...

creepy dang cat....so scary.

Holly Tried It said...

So funny, my nose didn't even start itching when reading about cats. But, oh, owe...now my scalp itches. Hate cats. Achooo!

Future Mama said...

Happy SITS day! I've visited your blog before and I think it's sooo cute!!

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

Sounds like something my crazy cat would do.

delilah, the unruly helpmeet said...

Oh, people who feed feral cats infuriate me. You're just perpetuating the cycle, crazy cat lady!

Happy Saturday SITS Sharefest!
