    Cat saves Houston-area woman from pit bull attack | Dallas - Fort Worth News | wfaa.com | Pets

    PEARLAND, Texas – A Houston-area woman is recovering after two large pit bulls attacked her outside her home, police said.

    Cherry Woods, 39, claims her cat, Lima, saved her from the dogs by scratching and hissing at the animals.

    According to the Pearland police report, the attack happened May 21 just before 8 a.m.

    Woods claims she was walking back to her home in the 2300 block of Short Springs Court in Pearland when she saw the dogs from a distance. When they started charging towards her, she tried to fight them off, but they knocked her down several times.

    Her husband, Harold Woods, said he was inside the home when he heard her screams. He unsuccessfully tried to separate the dogs from his wife, he said.

    That’s when the couple’s cat, Lima, jumped into the fray.

    According to Woods, the feline clawed and hissed at the dogs and distracted them.

    "Our cat came out of the bushes and scratched one of the dogs, and started hissing at it," he said. "They both turned their attention to the cat. I was able to grab my wife and pull her inside the house."

    There was a big cat one of my previous boyfriends had that was fat and kind of mean with an ugly meow but that one was little and very aggressive.

    OMG, that is fucking HILARIOUS! I made the mistake of watching it at work and I'm laughing my ass off and can't quit.

    I had a psycho Persian who attacked me when it was time to feed her. She was serious and drew blood. I also had a friend's cat attack me completely out of the blue. He made my EYE bleed, for Pete's sakes.

    I love animals - especially dogs and cats.

    But I would have kicked that son of a bitch flat up against the wall about 1.2 seconds into his first lunge.
