My Cat Has Gotten Wayyyyy To Brave

Recommended Posts

I get home from work about twenty minutes ago. Go out on my patio with my wife, and notice my cat has acquired some kind of new "trophy". He's sitting in the grassy area behind the condo playing with it. All of a sudden a frickin hawk swoops down and lands about four or so feet from the cat and his dead thing. Mr. Cat springs up and jumps on the hawk, hissing and spitting the whole way. The hawk says to Heck with this a launches off the ground onto a tree branch about twenty feet up. Where he sits and still all ruffled up from the attack starts cawing angerly at the cat. My cat proceeds to scoop up his chipmunk and wander off up the hill.

Ive seen this cat get after a possum and he reguarly brings squirrels home, but attacking a hawk? That's totally new to me. Even at 18 pounds I've never heard of a cat going after a hawk. I think he's having a bird day about like I am.

I have no clue what he is. We got him from a shelter when he was a kitten. He ain't furry enough to be a Maine Coon. But Im definitely curious now. I'm gonna see what I can come up with via the internet.

18 lbs? Good lord that hawk sounds like the brave one to me.

Yeah, I have been Red tail hawk watching for many years as a farmer. Mice, moles, snakes are the usual fare. Every once in a while, one swoops down on a rabbit.....the rabbit usually wins. I once saw a rabbit cave a hawk's head in with it's back legs. Hawk vs. cat....I am going to say the cat has the upper hand.

Sounds more like your "cat" is actually a honey badger!

Fisher, this is not a cat.

Did you find that in person or on line? That's too funny!

As far as the hawk incident, I have a friend in Jefferson City, MO that had some small terrier pups running around his yard and a hawk came down and got 2 of them.

Driving up to scout camp one year, we saw a hawk swoop down and pick-up a cat out of a farm yard.

I also saw one of the bald eagles on our lake pick-up a turtle; it was really something.
