Zoe psycho

I'm not psycho, I'm just intense.

What makes Zoe so mean?

Zoe is my “psychoZoe.” When she was a kitten, she was a wild woman! She would act lovey-dovey and turn on you in a split second. She still does that. She tolerates being petted on her stomach for only so long. Then it’s attack time.

Zoe loves to eat lizards and kill cockroaches. (Even she knows that cockroaches are disgusting!) Zoe is also our neighborhood birderer (murderer of birds). One time she brought home a lifeless bunny and put it on our doorstep. What a nice gift!

The other day I was taking pictures of her, and she got all riled. I am submitting a photo of her ready to pounce. She is deceiving. She can look soft and ready for love, and then she’ll turn and put a puncture wound right in your hand.

Zoe is evil

All flying creatures beware. The Birderer of Alcatraz approacheth.

She is 2 yrs old and I rescued her from the animal shelter. She could be a Russian Blue, but I think she is a DSH gray cat. Russian Blues usually have light pink paw pads, and Zoe’s are gray.

What makes Zoe so mean?

My kitty is named Zoe although he is a he. He can be sweet when he wants something, when he doesn’t, watch out! He’s ornery and he bites! He bites me all the time. He can be purring one minute, and the next instant he’s biting me.

And I do mean bite! I have scars all over my arms. He draws blood. There’s nothing to explain this behavior other than he just likes to be mean. You can see it in his eyes.

Zoe is mean

For those about to leap...we salute you!

What makes Zoe so mean?

Even the vet hates Zoe. She’s very hard to treat. She would love to kill every animal that comes in our yard, so we are careful not to let her out. So she takes her killing urges out on us.

In her own strange way, she’s kind of sweet, though.

Woody face

I am the MAKER of house rules. You got a problem wit' dat?

What makes Woody so mean?

This is Woody, who is not so much mean as he is the most annoying cat on the face of the earth.

Woody drinks

I'm not drinking...I'm spitting catbutt germs, hehehe.

His habits include drinking V8 juice out of MY glass, knocking everything off the bedside table when he thinks it time to get up – including the clock and lamp, and jiggling the toilet handle while I’m in the shower. He will learn to flush and scald me one of these days.

Woody is a meankitty

That was tasssssssssty. Thanks for leaving it unmonitored!

He has also made a house rule that all pens and pencils are to be on the floor at all times. Need a pen? Look down.

It is NOT time for my close-up, so bug off!

What makes Wilma so mean?

Wilma doesn’t like to be interrupted when she’s sunbathing, not even by admiring fans like myself who just want a quick photo and an autograph. She’ll give me an autograph, all right…with her claw!

Willow is meanie

I also whine when I draw blood from houseguests. Makes for an interesting contrast.

What makes Willow so mean?

Say hello (from a distance) to Willow aka Willow Fatbelly or Willowmeister. One day, I wandered into a pet shop and saw this tiny little kitten, all meek and stripey and cute, and decided upon her immediately. I should have taken heed of the shop owner who told me she’s never stopped miaowing all day.

“Piffle” I thought. Until I got her out of the shop….

That was 11 years ago and she hasn’t shut up since! She whines for food, for comfort, if there’s a draught, if it’s too hot, if someone looks at her the wrong way. She sulks when we go on holiday and by accounts of the people who come to feed her, she lays on the bed, festering, only moving downstairs for food.

Caretakers have been known to resort to using a long stick to pry her feeding bowl away from her reach – go any closer than that and human blood and flesh is a certainty.

Unsuspecting house-guests have commented on her lovely markings and gone to stroke her. Too late; they don’t see the change of look in her eye and they are just yet another statistic of The Willowmeister!

Willow is mean and bad

I'm BORN TO BE WILD, baby. Not to mention BAD TO THE BONE. A regular IRONMAN.

What makes Willow so mean?

Willow hates absolutely everything except food, water, sleep, and causing pain. He is disinterested in all things calm and relaxing. Lately, he only stops by the apartment to eat. If not here, he’s in the woods adjacent to our apartment complex terrorizing the other cats and viciously murdering the field mice there. His dominion is this small patch of woods.

The other cats run when they see him. He is their tyrant. Their dictator of the deciduous home away from home. The savage hammer-pawed assassin of the night. His favorite spot to rest after a busy night’s bloody romp in the woods? The bathroom sink, where he cleanses himself of his sins so he can commit them again 12 hours later. If he had his way, you wouldn’t be around reading this.

Gallery: Watson 2

Name: Watson (2)
Location: New Zealand

Watson is a meankitty

The white spot on my lip? An angel kiss. I kid you not!

What makes Watson so mean?

I found Watson when I worked at the local SPCA- he and his sister were brought in from a tough neighbourhood. At 8 weeks old, he had already had a taste of being tough: his ear had been torn in a fight.

After his hernia recovery (he fell out of a tree) is when he showed his true colours: his adult teeth were coming in so he tried them out by biting anything he could get his grubby little paws on: me, my husband, the other kitten, his toys and eventually, his favourite chewing toy was our German Shepherd, Misty.

But he grew out of that. His new favourite hobby was to attack our other kitten, Greuber, whenever he got the chance. Watson would lie in wait and would launch himself after Greuber (who was peacefuly sleeping). His targets kept growing as he did: first it was Greuber, then it was the dog. He routinely kicks the dog off her bed, eats her food and launches himself at the dog so he can bite her face, ears, nose and head. He’s given her a few scratches to the general eye area. He then decided that the dog’s bed wasn’t good enough and started sleeping on our bed. Night after night now he takes up half the bed for himself and makes my husband and I move to the other half. Occasionally, he’ll sleep on top of us both and with just a look keeps us still until he decides he wants to move.

He’s earned the nickname “vampire kitty”, not only because of his long teeth, but he’ll climb onto the chair under the pretence of grooming poor, unsuspecting Greuber, but then…he bites Greuber on the neck and won’t let go. Wherever Greuber’s sleeping, that’s where he must be.

Watson is hungry

No, for the last time, I am NOT sharing my mangled snack!

His mean nature extends to those poor woodland creatures such as birds and mice (no squirrels here thankfully). He plays with them, kills them and plays with them more until their mangled bodies don’t resemble anything small, furry or feathery anymore- they are quite literally a shell of their former selves. Nothing is safe from this cat.

He doesn’t even have to say a word to get his way. Everyone thinks he’s the perfect little angel kitty. But we know better…

Viktoria is a meankitty.

*crunch crunch crunch crunch crunch*

What makes Viktoria so mean?

Viktoria just loves the taste of flesh. She’ll maul your hand till it’s smeared with blood. When she isn’t biting she’ll roll around purring and cuddling you like any lovely kitty. But do not be fooled by this- this is just a trap to lure you into the biting zone. She’ll grab your hand and when she done kicking and biting and scratching your hand, she’ll move up to your arm and bite on it. Sometimes I’ve caught her biting my elbow. Then she leaves you to bleed to death and goes to find some poor defenseless bird to torture and bring home. *sigh*
