Don't know what all the "attention" fuss is about. I'm helping! Petting a cat reduces stress while refusing to pet a cat CAUSES stress.
What makes Leo so mean?
This is Leo, brother of our other Japanese Bobtail Zeus. Leo is huge, so making him mad is not a smart thing to do. He has gotten even bigger since this picture was taken. Leo’s favorite activity is napping and heaven help the person who disturbs his slumber; once those huge paws grab you, there is no getting loose.
Leo likes attention once in awhile and when he does, whoever he has chosen had better give it up or else. He will grab your arm with his paw the first time, add claws the second and bite the third time if you do not comply. It doesn’t matter what you are doing. His needs are much more important and he will yank your arm away from the keyboard or book you are reading. Any resistance to his demands can result in a bloody mess.
I do not know Leo’s current weight, but I can tell it is a lot! One of his favorite ways to wake you from sleep is to climb on the bed and stand on your chest with all his weight leaning on his front paws. You either wake up and give in or you will never breathe again.

What makes EZ so mean?
She is a gray alien, and an angry one. I have no other words to describe her.

Names: Ex and Lilah
The dead cat trick works every time! Try it, SOHC friends!
What makes Ex and Lilah so mean?
Ex is mean, mean, mean. Especially if we expand the definition of “mean” to include “stinky” and “bizarre”. He loves to carry empty toilet paper rolls around the apartment, tearing them to tiny bits while howling when the mood strikes him. He also enjoys pulling rug pads out from under rugs and tearing them to bits too. He’s been working on one in particular for over ten years.
Hey, I want to chew up a rug pad with my big, blurry teeth!
He continues to collect small totems, like milk jug caps, plastic hanger protectors and the aforementioned rug pad bits to put in the people’s bed as a surprise. He likes hiding inside the comforter cover, which he knows makes the lady think he is dead and therefore freaks her out. His meanest trick is the oldie-but-goodie of peeing five inches away from the litter box. Every time.
Is that you, Kansas? Did I get the job?
The brains behind the operation, though, is his little sis Lilah, who really can be mean in the traditional sense, especially when you have petted, brushed or, oh, looked at her for a little too long. During the summer, she likes to meanly catch and hold cicadas in her mouth, thus achieving the elusive and very mean double cat-bug hum-growl-purr noise. Her picture shows her studying hard to find a way to achieve dominion over Kansas, as she is very bright and ambitious.

Dog's nose? Scratching post? Me decide!
What makes Emory so mean?
Emory is a recently rescued, supposedly “wweet” little kitty who was but a mere 11 ounces when we first met a few short weeks ago. Well, at first she hid behind the “sweet kitty” guise, so we’d fall in love with her no matter what she did.
Well, it worked! I won’t even go into details about the deep wounds she’s inflicted upon the ankles of anyone who gets near her, or about the ringworm that she gave about 29 men, women, small children, and other pets. She loves to attack the dogs…yep, doesn’t matter if it’s a pit bull or a chihuahua.
Here’s Emory flying towards the snout of one of our dogs. He’s ready to take it like a “man”, and despite Emory’s vicious plan of action, he continues to be mellow and kind to her.
Well, I must go put some more ointment on my ringworm rash. Thanks for the chance to get posted on your site! Emory would thank you, but she’s busy sharpening her claws at the moment.

Names: Emily and Blossom
Location: Barsley, UK
If only I could flip a bird with a middle claw. Or terrorize a bird with all my claws, I'm not picky.
What makes Emily and Blossom so mean?
I have another cat, Salem, and Emily and Blossom spend hours beating him up so he sleeps in the garden to avoid them. If he comes into the house and snoozes in a chair, whack, kitty claw across his head and another one biting his tail. Poor Salem just hisses and runs through the catflap so fast that he nearly takes it with him.
Emily is the ginger/white one, Blossom is white with brown and grey-black patches. They were litter trained when we got them but seem to be going through a rebellious phrase of hiding behind the cooker or fridge and leaving an unpleasant message. When they started going behind the sofa, where I keep my handbag, is when I had the most trouble. of view from visitors or burglars. Here I am, ready to go out to an important Town Hall meeting where I attend with councillors to discuss educational matters, my best suit on instead of my scraggy Levis, and I picked up my handbag to find a very diarrheic brown splodge all over the inside. Yes, one of the little monsters had crawled inside the handbag and left me a message I would not forget in a hurry.
Hey, Emily, where you wanna go poo next?
I happened three times since, so now I leave my new handbag on top of a very high shelf. So now they favor my shoes, basketfuls of ironing, and the sofa itself.

You can't hear it since this cheapwad site isn't hooked up to audio, but I'm engaging in some really frightening Satanic growling in this shot.
What makes Emily so mean?
Emily is a three year old Tortie best known for her shrill whining which turns into very deep satanic growling. Her demonic growls were first discovered when she was a small kitten; she was nibbling on some chicken bones and proceeded to eat a drumstick bone whole, growling unusually deeply as we tried to take it away from her.
Do not even TRY to take my bag from me, or the Satanic growling will escalate to some Satanic biting.
Her favorite activities include drinking other people’s drinks, biting feet, bothering the older cat (Brooke), randomly freaking out and scratching, and loving only my dad.
Emily Update 2009:
Don't I look like the Goddess of Killing Poison-toothed Rodents? I have applied for my own temple.
Since last year, Emily has become a little less volatile. Just as she had become snuggly (on her terms only) and we thought she was finally mellowing out, she actually flipped out and got one of the neighbors good on the leg (he was standing on the picnic table to get away from her!). She had to be quarantined for ten days to make sure she didn’t have rabies (sadly, simply being a psychotic demon-spawn wasn’t enough of an excuse). She’s safe and fine now, but we definitely know Emily will always be a timebomb meankitty at heart.
Emily continues to make regular shrew sacrifices.

Name: Evil Emil
Location: The Stunt Guilt
I'm practicing for Mission Impossible: Dogpocolypse!
What makes Emil so mean?
My kitty Emil spent his whole first two months with his mommy and yet still this is the face I come home to. What’s to make a kitty normal? I love him intensely yet he seems to only be interested in eating me and my other two cats.

Bond. James Bond. Catagent Double Oh Awesome. The flower turns into a gun.
What makes James so mean?
This cat has given me 2 stitches already. He is an unstoppable, bulletproof force. A real action kitty with a major attitude problem. But as you see in the picture…he’s a pretty boy.

Bright colored? Don't you mean neon yellow? I'm just trying to curtail your bad fashion sense.
What makes Ivory so mean?
This is a picture of my pretty and tough cat Ivory Jones. She can be mean whenever she wants to be, especially if you push her. She hates it when anyone in the family messes with her paws; she’s very sensitive about them. She’ll give a low growl and start biting your fingers. She will attack your legs if you have on bright colored pants. We love her to death, but when it comes to fighting, she doesn’t mess around.

Hey... Keekee... Smell my butt.
What makes Ivan so mean?
Meet Ivan. Named after Pavlov but it should have been after ‘the Terrible’! Ivan was found at a local psychiatric hospital (don’t ask cuz I won’t tell), a skinny, pathetic wisp of a grey cat with mites in his ears and a nasty boil on his butt. His was indeed in a sad plight! And so the decision was made to take Ivan into our home, doctor him, feed him, love him….introduce him to our kitty KeeKee who was also once a stray.
Ivan responded oddly to all the love and attention. He grew healthy, chubby, and oh-so-mean and violent!!! Gratitude – ha! Respect- ha! Oh no….Ivan’s psych ward kittenhood has reared its head in full glory. Not only is everything a personal chew toy, but he has teamed up with the dog in making KeeKee’s life pure hell. In fact, KeeKee is beginning to be a mean kitty too (you can see her eyes starting to convert in the corner of the photo.)
