Petey is mean

It's true, I hate men. They smell like dogs.

What makes Petey so mean?

This lovely big ball of fur is Petey. Petey has a sister who is on this site, and that would be Lucy. Petey is Lucy’s unfortunate little brother. He is about four years old and is my very first cat of my own. He was given to me after our other male cat, Bo-bo, died. Petey isn’t a mean kitty to me or my mother, but to any bed spread, book, or make up brush he is. He also doesn’t like men. He especially hates my twin brother Cory. Cory likes to play helicopter with poor Petey and Petey has recently drawn blood from Cory’s cheek.

Petey is mean

We don't need no....EDUCATION! We don't need no books, neither.

Anywho, Petey has a tendency to lay on my books while I’m trying to do my homework. If I attempt to move the books he will sink his teeth into any part of the book he can and proceed to kick it furiously with his hind legs. Once I get the book out of his grasp he will attack my bed spread, violently.

Petey is mean

Hey, can you pour me some more Fruit Loops? I got no thumbs.

Petey is also in love with human food. He would much rather eat our food than his own. Whenever someone has lunch meat or cream cheese, he will stalk you from the kitchen to where ever you are going to enjoy your food. He will then jump on the table, bed, counter, etc. to get in your face and loudly meow at you until you cave. He is the light of my life and I love him so much, but he tends to be a brat and really, really mean to my brother and my boyfriend. Or any other male, for that matter.

Name: Turnip
Location: Facebook

Turnip in Ohio

One tree left and I can qualify for Erosion Cat of the Year!

What makes Turnip so mean?

Turnip recently, um, turned up at our house in Athens, Ohio, and he’s been terrorizing us for a month now. Though he is not quite 4 months old, he has left our lives in a shambles. He calls long distance and orders live mice by the dozen; he has felled all the trees in our yard with his terrible claws; most terrifyingly, sometimes head of staff David wakes up at night with Turnip cowering over him, making odd purring noises. David doesn’t know what this means, but he figures his time is limited on this earth. Please keep David in your thoughts, and also his soon-to-be widow, Christine. I’ve seen the way Turnip looks at her – she’s next.

If anyone wants to check on Turnip’s reign of terror, look for his chief of staff on Facebook – David Roche in Athens, Ohio.

Akeem the mean

Apparently my human mistakes SOHC membership for psychosis. Silly biped.

What makes Akeem so mean?

This is Akeem, whose full name is Akeem Bathsheba, Queen of the Universe.

Akeem is now 12 years old and has mellowed over the years, from frankly psychotic to merely bad-tempered.

Her chief pleasures in life are baiting human children so that she can wallop them and whaling the tar out of neighborhood kittens. Oh, and lying in the sun.

Gallery: Mischa

Name: Mischa
Location: Perth, W. AU

I'm in therapy for those embarrassing timid phases. My goal is to be a meankitty 100%!

I’m in therapy for those embarrassing timid phases. My goal is to be a meankitty 100%!

What makes Mischa so mean?

Mischa is schizophrenic. She is either totally timid, afraid of noises, other cats, dogs, the vacuum cleaner, lawn mower etc, or the complete opposite.

One thing she is never afraid of is the cat brush or whoever is using it on her. Show her the brush and she goes into immediate attack mode, taking flesh with her.

When she’s in her tigress mode, she arches her back, moving sideways like a crab, and dares you to move. If you do, she attacks ankles, calves, knees, and enjoys pouncing from nowhere and kicking me in the legs before running off and hiding, ready to pounce once more. She has a scratching post which has not been touched because she prefers to shred the couches and dining chairs.

When just a kitten, her favourite pastime was to climb the feature brick walls to the ceiling. She will drink from nothing but the birdbath in the yard, which she has to stretch from rocks to reach.

UPDATED SEPTEMBER 2014: Now that Mischa is older and in ill health, she still fits the mean kitty bill and hasn’t lost the ability to draw blood from my legs, particularly when another cat is around. However, the brush she fought so hard against back in the day is something she demands many times a day as her medium hair is now very long hair. In fact the vet had to shave her chest today because of fur matting.

Advice: How To Be So Mean

August 10th, 2014  / Author: Meankitty

Dear Meankitty,

I have been reading all your advice and I think you are one pretty special kitten. I wish my humans were as well trained as yours. I really admire you! How do you do it?

Signed,
Tom

Dear Tom,

Tip #21 on training your human: mean mostly, sweet sometimes and never let them see you plot. Work that one a little harder and soon you’ll be eating tuna right out of their hands.

Signed,
Meankitty

Oliver the Meankitty with LePaws

Shew, I'm tired after all that boxing.

What makes Oliver so mean?

My best friend and I really, really wanted a cat when we got our first apartment, so we got Oliver. A man who owned a mechanic shop found Oliver one day outside his business’ door and kept him there until he could find him a new home with some very forgiving and tolerant owners…us.

When we picked him up, he had very little hair and was in really bad shape, but one thing that he didn’t lack was an attitude. He would be so sweet and crawl up in your lap and purr and love on you, but heaven forbid you get up before he wanted to or he would turn into “boxing kitty”!!! He will stand up on his hind legs, meow really loudly and just start boxing at your face with both paws…not just once, but over and over until you lay back down.

We are honestly always scared to get up if he’s laying on us. And, if he’s hungry and you get up and walk to the kitchen, he slaps at your legs and bites your ankles until you feed him. My life would definitely be more boring without Mr. Oliver LaPaws. I am happy to say that after 3 years of living with me, he is now fat, furry, and happy…that is, if you DON’T get up!

Location: The Roost

Ragamuffin the Maine Coone

Rescue me from the gunk in my eye!

What makes Ragamuffin so mean?

This is Ragamuffin, AKA Rags. She’s a 1 yr. old rescued Maine Coon cat that rules the roost. When I got her at two months she was sick and weighed just over a pound. She is quite an attention hog. When I’m reading she eats the pages.

Ragamuffin grown up

If you want to know what cats think of David Baldacci...

Now that she’s older and bigger (10) pounds, she’s taken on hardbacks. When I’m at the computer, her bid for attention is running down the hall, climbing the back of my chair and sitting on my shoulders. The bad part of this exercise is when she misses the chair and gets me instead. Maybe she’s trying to tell me it’s her bedtime because that’s where she sleeps.

Gallery: Adair aka Alstair

August 8th, 2014  / Author: Meankitty

Name: Adair formerly known as Alstair
Location:
Adso’s House

Alister is a Meankitty

Loooook at this fuzzily cute face! Don't you want to quit being mad about that whole 'you nearly broke your neck falling down the stairs' thing?

What makes Alstair so mean? (Yes we know the post says “Adair”…keep reading!)

Alstair is a M.K.I.T {Mean Kitty In Training} under his Yoda like mentor Adso. He adopted the sucker, er, me 1 day before Samhain at my new house. He used the “I’m so defenseless” strategy to attract my attention, which was easy because apparently the ‘sucker’ tattoo on my forehead was glowing like a candle in a Jack o’ lantern!

Alister the Meankitty

No, no, not the harness!

Adso promptly clued Alstair into all sorts of nifty stuff once we took him in. Things like:

* looking “adorable” then pouncing on the unsuspecting hand
* the art of AKB {aerial kitty bombardment} into the human bed late at night
* attacking thru the railing on the upstairs breezeway
* stair run-by/trip the human.

In other words, all kinds of wonderful things. But I have to admit, when he is “adorable” and “fuzzily cute” on the outside it’s his best tactic to bend the household to his will with his newly discovered and untapped Meankitty potential.

Alister is actually Adair

I am looking for tips on how to punish humans who dare put a harness on me and think I'm a dude. Don't turn it off yet!

Update: “Alstair” is actually known as “Adair” now because he turned out to be a SHE. Those silly humans and their gender issues!

Location: Stockton, CA

Screecher wants a drink

Feelin peckish. Think I'll have a little snack.

What makes Screecher so mean?

Here’s a meankitty for you. This is Screecher. This cat is a wild barn kitty from the tough town of Stockton, CA. Stockton is to California like the Bronx is to N.Y.

Screecher bites

The fish wasn't enough...think I'll have a bigger snack.

Screecher has lots of pent-up anger. She tries to eat bicycle tires and anything you put in front of her. If you accidentally leave the food out, she’ll eat it all! She’ll drink your coffee if you’re not looking, eat your pantyhose and socks, and swipe at your every foot step!

Screecher’s nick-name is “Aqua Kitty” because she likes water…especially the shower and the bath tub!

Screecher in the bath

Fact...or faked? Perhaps we need the SyFy channel to figure that out.

This cat even has a rap song written about her. (My name is Screecha…and I’m going to eatcha…)

Tazmania the meankitty

I've got two colored eyes to match my two sides: mean... and evil!

What makes Tazmania so mean?

Meet Taz(maniac). He decided to come live with us, take over our lives and destroy our home when he was only 7 weeks. I am convinced he is schizzo – if he is picked up and loved he will hug and kiss you back, purring madly. Back on the ground, you are barely allowed one stroke before he is on you with all four feet, claws fully extended + a mouth full of teeth. He is afraid of NOTHING, but he does dislike bum baths in the extreme.

To name the best example of his fearlessness, I can run a vacuum cleaner up and down his body and he just lies there; he will even give it a slap when I take it away! This has made deterring him from using our Persian rug as a scratching base harder, since a spray from the water bottle only stops him at the time. Almost immediately he will come back again and rip up the rug.

Tazmania is mean

Uh-oh...you look like you want to give me a bum bath!

Taz is also harness-trained and loves walks and car rides. He is put out at the moment because it is 50 degrees centigrade + in Dubai at the moment so walks are out of the question and he is stuck in the apartment — reduced to chattering his teeth at the local pigeons (I put bread out to attract them for him).

He follows me around the house all day but his real adoration is reserved for my husband. (Little b@$t@rd! Who feeds you, hey?)
