Glenn the Houdini Cat

Mmmmm! Tastes like chicken poop!

What makes Glenn so mean?

Glenn, a Russian Blue, was a gift to me from my husband when I moved to Israel to be with him, but we’ve since come back to the U.S. and currently reside in New Jersey. When Glenn was a baby in Israel, he used to sneak out and terrorize our neighbor’s chickens. He’d come back covered in chicken poop and I’d have to give him a bath. If we left the house and didn’t separate him and our dog, Punto, we’d come back to find little streaks of blood all over the wall because Glenn had attacked the poor dog’s tail until it bled.

When we decided to come back to the States, of course we weren’t going to leave our animals behind, so we got their papers in order, and we were instructed by the vet to give them sedatives for the 9 hour flight from Israel to Newark, New Jersey. Well, a mere cat carrier is no match for our meankitty, and somehow he escaped enroute to the airplane! When we were on the tarmak, boarding the plane with the rest of the passengers, we asked one of the officials about our animals and they said, “Are you the ones with the cat? He escaped and ran over that way, they’re looking for him now.” Then she pointed about a mile down the way to some hangars. Long story short, we wouldn’t get on the plane without Glenn, and they wouldnt take our luggage off because in Israel that’s against regulations, so my husband went off with some airport workers and searched for Glenn. Eventually he found him hiding under some crates. We got him back in his carrier, which by then the airport workers had taped all up and down, and onto the plane and we boarded. We delayed a plane full of people for 2 hours. Oh, the glares we got when we finally got on the plane.

Glenn Again

I could have delayed that plane for 4 hours, but I got bored of the hangar.

He pees on things when he’s mad, is grumpy and reclusive and the only human he semi-tolerates is me. Recently we got a new kitten and it’s gone pretty well, but Glenn loves to make sure little Remmy knows exactly who’s boss of this mob.

Leah is mean

My belly clock says "tuna treats, ding ding ding ding ding!"

What makes Leah so mean?

Leah is a sweet girl when it comes to food and pets. Sadly, when you stop petting her, all hell breaks loose. Leah (or Nonny, her nickname) will lash out with her superpower teeth and cause superb pain in your hand.

She can meow for hours on end for food, and she will eat it, of course, but then her stomach says no and she hacks the dinner back up. Leah has her belly time clock. Strictly at 6:00am, 2:00pm, and 8:00pm, she needs to be fed. If not, if you’re laying in bed, she will chew on your hair, bite your toes, and or sit on your stomach. Leah is a beautiful fatling, but her attitude makes up for the smarts.

Lucy is mean

These claws are registered weapons and I'm not afraid to use them. On your eyeball.

What makes Lucy so mean?

Lucy is about 11 years old and has been grumpy since the day we got her. Why is she a mean cat? That question probably could be answered with the fact that she is and always has been a full blown princess. Our family got her when I was about 7. Her very first act of meanness was when she got her claw stuck in my eye when I was playing with her. Since then she has dominated the household.

She had a best friend named Bo-bo who passed away. Shortly after get received a new kitty and named him Petey. Lucy likes to boss Petey around. Whenever he comes close to her, she swats him on the head.

Lucy has a tendency to be nice to you only if you give her food. She has swatted my friends and myself in the face with full claws before. The only human being Lucy is completely in love with is my mom. And that will remain this way for the rest of her life. She is the ruler of the roost and even has a jeweled yellow collar to show her dominance. She’s a loving cat only when you don’t touch the tip of her tail. If you do, good luck!

Tiger & Luna are mean

In between attacking the TV and the humans, we like to get our beauty rest.

What makes Tiger and Luna so mean?

Tiger and Luna both came to us via Petco when other awful humans would just ditch the kittens there and expect the Petco people to figure out what to do with them. Luckily the Petco people also know which of their customers are suckers so Tiger and then Luna came to rule our roost.

What is mean about them? They like each other better than people and love to attack the TV. Sometimes they like to pretend we’re akin to the awful humans who abandoned them and seek their revenge for the mistreatment.

I am licking my lips at the thought of tasting your flesh!

What makes Daisy so mean?

This is Daisy. She is not very nice. Do not look at, inch towards or otherwise annoy her as you will be punished. Severely. And don’t even think about touching her.

If she jumps onto your lap, do not be seduced into petting her. This is her infamous trap. If you give in to her charms, you will pay dearly.

To most, it is worth it.

What makes MJ so mean?

Mary Jane Lulabelle is earning her status as a mean kitty by using her human’s belly as spring board for leaping over the back of the couch, cornering and biting her feline housemate for no apparent reason, meowing incessantly for cat nip or treats, sharpening her claws on any important papers her human is dumb enough to leave out and waiting to yak up hairballs until her human has guests.

Monkeybutt

If it weren't for my fur, this would be the perfect disguise!

She earned her alias, Monkey Butt, by leaping around the room, using light fixtures and furniture to play rousing games of “the floor is lava” while her human is trying to sleep.

Baby is a meankitty

You know, my tail is better than a dryer sheet for removing static. Ha ha ha! Not really, it just makes things worse. But it sure is funny.

What makes Baby so mean?

My mean kitty is named Baby. She is two years old.

When I get on the computer she will jump up on it and hang her tail down across the screen. When I ask her to move it she just wags it back and forth. When I move it she turns around and scratches my hand, or grabs my hand and bites it, then she puts her paw down across the screen.

Baby sleeps in my bathroom sink and bites me when I try to get her out. When I turn on the water she bites at it but stays in the sink.

When I walk across the floor she runs in front of me, jumps up, flips, and lunges at me when I pass her.

Cody is a meankitty

Pardon me, I'm busy thinking of some revenge and how to serve it cold.

What makes Cody so mean?

Several years ago, when one of my two cats died, the other started showing definite signs of depression. He barely touched his food, didn’t want to play, etc. I consulted my vet, and he suggested getting another cat immediately. In fact, he just happened to have one!

The adorable little tuxedo kitty they brought out was six months old. He was cradled in the receptionist’s arms and blinked at me with bright green eyes, as innocent as he could be.

“Oh, isn’t he cute?” I said, leaning in for a closer inspection.

At which point the adorable little tuxedo kitty reared back for leverage and took a swipe at me that would’ve taken my face off if I hadn’t moved. Quickly.

“Don’t worry.” The vet smiled. “He’ll be fine once he gets used to you.”

I’ve always loved a challenge.

I named him Cody—after Cody Jarrett, the psychotic killer in Cagney’s film “White Heat”. Trust me. It fit. What the vet DIDN’T tell me was that Cody had been returned to his mini-shelter three times by others, and his file permanently labeled “anti-social”. Uh-huh.

Never mind the fact that he never did get along with the other cat, who loved EVERYBODY. Or that he refused to be petted or accept any show of affection.

Cody is a meankitty

Don't tell me that you're innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and it makes me very angry.

There’ve been incidents over the years. He’s earned his gansta rep. One example is the Godfather Goldfish Caper he led, somehow snaring one of my poor goldfish from the depths of a twenty-gallon tank sitting five feet off the ground. I came home to find the remains laid out at the threshold of my door, not unlike the horse’s head in the film.

Or when I went to pick him up at the vet’s after a blood test and had the receptionist look at me with horror, saying, “Oh, that’s YOUR cat.” Apparently, Cody took umbrage at having his cage set on top of a dog’s, and somehow managed to contort his body enough to claw the poor sick creature’s nose.

And there is the fact that he believes in serving his revenge cold. Yes, revenge. Chastise Cody with a loud, harsh word or squirt from the water bottle? He’ll freeze. Give you that cold, green psycho stare. And walk away. But there will be retribution. Wait for it. For my first lesson, he bided his time for nearly two hours, so I’d nearly forgotten the incident, to hide around the corner of the stairs and reach out at just the right moment to claw and trip me.

I survived. I learned. Law of the jungle.

And did I mention how much I love the little monster?

Name: Pearl
Location: Ohio

Pearl is a meankitty

Who gave you permission to touch me??

What makes Pearl so mean?

I got Pearl when she was 7 weeks old. She started out as the adorable loving kitty, but then one night she just turned evil! She’s now three years old and over the course of time, we have introduced two new cats, a bird, a puppy and a ferret to our household. Needless to say, she’s not all that thrilled about it.

Heres a list of the mean things she does:

1. She puts her feet over the food bowl to make sure she gets all she wants before anyone else. She will even inspect the other food to make sure we didn’t give anyone else something different, and if we did, she eats it too!

2. She’s especially evil to my little brother; she hisses and growls and bites him every chance she gets.

3. She doesn’t like company. People always comment on what a beautiful cat I have, but I have to warn them not to pet her, because she bites! Needless to say they don’t believe me. I actually have a sign on the door that says not to pet the white cat!

4. She teases the dog by sitting up high where he can’t reach her, then he barks and barks…..and we have to scold him for it. I think she’s secretly laughing inside every time.

5. She lays on the middle of the kitchen table, and keyboard.

6. She sits in front of the family room TV so we can’t see! I tell her over and over again that she isn’t invisible, but she doesn’t believe me or doesn’t care!

7. She trips us on the stairs, stares at us in the bathroom, constantly meows at 4 am (even when she’s not in heat) and thinks our full cups of soda, milk, coffee, are her own personal drinking dishes.

8. And what is up with that constant scratching on the wall next to the litter box?? That’s not how you cover your poop!

9. She gets along great with the bird and ferret….go figure!!

10. She won’t let me sleep on my own bed, and when she does, it’s only temporary. I soon wake because she’s biting my hands or feet.
