O.M.G! Today the weather was nice so I have my windows open as well as my back door. My cat which lives entirely inside was sitting at the door looking out when a neighborcat walked across the yard and up to the door. I was concerned but just watched to see what would happen.
The neighborcat kept his/her distance and my cat started growling slightly. I figured that would be a good time to close the door. As I got up and closed it my cat had suddenly turned from nose-licking loving chest warmer to a fierce little lion. She faced me and bared her teeth, screaming and advancing on me. I totally freaked out too.
I was seriously afraid of what she was going to do. I grabbed nearby objects and threw them near her (Not at her) hoping to scare her away from me but she stood her ground. Holy shit! I plucked a small pillow off the couch and threw it at her directly. She ran upstairs growling at me. I let her be.
After a few hours I had to go upstairs. She was on the landing and probably had gotten over it but I slipped and fell on the stairs freaking her out again. She was back in attack mode and I was also freaking out again. I threw objects near her and then the pillow at her again. She retreated upstairs.
Damn! My heart was beating wildly not knowing a cat could do that. I sure hope she gets over this permanently. I would not want to live with that in my house. It was like having someone you don’t know suddenly in the house with you. Freaky! I wold not have thought such a reaction was possible.
I wonder what the hell happened to make her act like that. It’s kind of like a docile rottweiler suddenly wanting to rip your face off.
