I am feeling the sudden onset of general emotional numbing and chronic pain, simultaneously! Go away, Cujo, and leave me alone!
What makes Cujo so mean?
Long-term effects of domestic violence on kittens who have been abused by Cujo may include:
* chronic depression
* chronic pain
* drug and alcohol dependence
* eating disorders
* emotional “over-reactions” to stimuli
* general emotional numbing

Name: Ghost (2)
Location: Casper, WY (No joke!)
What am I supposed to do when they put in a bird vending machine on the back porch? Ignore it?
What makes Ghost so mean?
Do not let his cute expression fool you. He is truly a meankitty! Why? Various reasons.
1. He beats up on poor Ollie, a nervous orange cat that came to us before Ghost. Ghost used to try and snuggle with Ollie. Ollie would hiss and not let Ghost near him. Pay back time! He now runs Ollie off his favorite sleeping place just for fun. I swear I can hear him laughing, an evil little laugh it is too.
2. He hogs all the canned food. I feed him first and he gets the lion’s share. He eats really fast and then runs the bigger cats off of the food they haven’t finished. Even if he has food left, he runs over eats the other cats’ food, then goes back to his.
3. Super bird killer. One day before leaving for work he came in the house with a small dead bird. I took it away., 5 minutes later he comes in with a live robin, a full grown one. Got that away too. Right before I leave, here he comes with another dead one. All this in the space of about 20 minutes. I come home for lunch and there are bird feathers every where and what my husband described as a “shredded bird, nothing left but some feathers and guts.”
4. He is trying to kill us. His nickname is Trip, because he will walk right in front of you or sit beside your feet so you will trip over him. Hence: Trip for a nickname. He also goes by CatPig, Ghostie Post Toastie, and Bird Death.
5. For breakfast he wakes you up by shoving his face in yours and breathing on you. He will purr extra loud like he really loves you. Then when you get up, he’ll snag you with a claw. So, if you see a cute little guy that was dumped at your house with another nicer cat, keep the nicer one, the cute shy one is pure cat evil.
PS: Lives with Baggy.
ETA, from the humans: “Ghostie had to be euthanized on 12/15/11. Alas, he was not as mean as inoperable cancer in the corner of his right eye. Knowing Ghostie would not want to live with half a face he went over the bridge. We miss you Ghost! Even the other cats seem to miss him.”

I am NOT constantly annoyed. I'm quite mellow when there's no humans there to see it.
What makes Honey so mean?
Don’t let the name ‘Honey’ deceive you into thinking he’s all sweet and innocent. Honey’s a 5 year old ginger tom that we bought from our local pet shop. He’s constantly annoyed with everyone and anything. He’s attacked the milk man, he’s chased a Great Dane away, he’s bit anyone who’s shadow was unfortunate enough to go near him.
This shot is me doing my awesome Lon Chaney impression. You like?
But, apart from his flaws, he can be quite ‘sweet’ every blue moon and I wouldn’t change him for the world.

Whew, it takes forever to get off the slime in my fur from carving this thing!
What makes Knickknack so mean?
Be on the lookout for Knickknack, shown here in a rare innocent moment. In actuality, she is a cold-blooded hunter, often caught red-pawed. Stalks hapless prey outdoors and brings them inside for the kill. Known victims include a dozen birds, four mice, a slug, a tiny snake and countless dragonflies. Eats evidence, except feathers and miscellaneous body parts, including one (?) foot from a dove. Should be considered clawed and dangerous.

Name: No Kitty Ow Kitty
Location: House of M
There are reflections of my beautiful face in your eyeball. I think I'll attack it!
What makes No Kitty Ow Kitty so mean?
Kitty is a mean kitty for so many reasons. We got Kitty to be a playmate for the 100 lb slobber machine that is our lab. He was lonely and the small children who live here off and on just weren’t cutting it. We figured if we got a kitten, then Kitty and dog could be great friends. WRONG. It took three whole days after we brought her home just to make her stop hissing and spitting and biting everyone. Within two weeks, (at 8 weeks old) she had fully taken control of our house. Kitty is four and a half months old now and here is her mean list.
1) She waits around the corner for the dog and when he passes by, she jumps on his face all claws and teeth.
2) Pursuant to the above, she makes the dog leave his food bowl whenever she desires to inspect it
3) When the dog wants to sleep somewhere that is not his crate, she creep s upon him and make mincemeat of his most tender places.
4) When he is frustrated with all the previously described behavior and resorts to chewing his rawhide or blankie, she torments him by biting and clawing at them as well until he gives up and goes after her…at which time he gets put into crate — “time out.”
5) This one is just strange. She will not drink from her own water bowl and will wait until AFTER the dog has thoroughly drooled up his own water before she will drink from his.
Mmmmmm, tender loin.
And lest you believe we are dog loving fools…the human list.
1) She has discovered she can fly and will regularly propel herself from one chair back to the other, taking care to anchor herself to the skull of the second chair’s occupant. Screaming and cursing do not bother her.
2) Whenever long hair is presented to her, she will climb it, eat it, pull it. Once again, screaming, cursing, and violent jerking of the head do not disturb her in the least.
3) I don’t think I even need to go into detail about the requisite Meankitty biting, kicking, and scratching.
4) She has decided that she MUST be in whatever room I am in. If I do not allow her to follow me, she will stand and scream until I let her in (at which point I must dig her out of whatever hidey-hole she has found, at great peril to my flesh) or go back to where I was originally.
5) Last, but certainly not least, she has discovered her most emotionally scarring trick. She will lie in a seemingly docile pose upon your chest as you watch television, and when the reflection from the TV on your eyeball becomes too much for her, she will poke you directly ON THE EYE. You cannot blink or move your head fast enough. Trust me. She did it twice, in both eyes, in five minutes.
I used to read the kitty profiles on this website and think that these were strange and isolated cases. Now I know how very wrong I was.
P.S. Though there have been many suggestions for a proper name for Kitty. My favorite so far is “Darth Vicious.”

Who, me jump off balconies? Nevah!
What makes Herby so mean?
Where do I begin? Just to hit the high points… When Herby was a baby, he was more obnoxious than the 100 other cats I have had in my life. I would get home from work and he would leap at me and climb up my panty hose on my leg! He would also do this to any guest that walked in my house. Pants, panty hose… Whatever the wardrobe! People SERIOUSLY hated coming to my house because of him.
As he got older, he seemed like he would do things to spite me. After jumping off my 4th story balcony, he was not allowed out there any more. He was climbing the Christmas Tree and broke his leg! He would climb on the counters and tables, wherever there might be a drink sitting, and wait until I saw him next to it. Then he would paw it off the counter all over the floor.
As soon as you turn your back, I'm dropping this pumpkin on the mailman.
Then he decided his toys were not amusing enough. So he began the great habit of climbing up the DOOR FRAMES! I literally have claw marks up and down my door frames. He would climb up then shriek his claws down the sides. After 2.5 years of this, I let him on my balcony again. (This time, 2nd story.) He would jump off and run away for days at a time. Finally I discovered he was going to my neighbor’s house. She claims he is the sweetest most gentle loving cat ever!

Name: Chloe the Destroyer
Yes, soon the universe will be one giant hairball.
What makes Chloe so mean?
Chloe was an unassuming gentle and furry kitten soul until she discovered that she actually ruled the universe! Chloe is the manifest kitten form of Shiva, the Indian deity of destruction. Look deep into her eyes and lose the will to think.. be one of us, one of us, one of us….. She is bent on devouring the universe itself and belching it forth in a regurgitated version of her own devising. MWahahahahahahahahh!

If you insist on taking photos of me when I'm asleep, at least make sure my whiskers are smooth first.
What makes Attila so mean?
My name is Attila. I’m a 12 year old female retired mean kitty. I say retired because it seems that all I like to do these days is eat and sleep. Every once in a while, I’ll still launch an attack on my mom & dad, but most of the time, I like to have my head and tummy rubbed.

Name: Psycho Lovebug
Location: San Antonio, TX
If they'd keep a roll of this beside my catpan, I wouldn't have to come all the way in here to wipe my bum.
What makes Psycho so mean?
Please find attached a photo of my kitty Psycho Lovebug, Queen of the Elsmere, who is a Meankitty in recovery. Psycho Lovebug had been abandoned at an apartment I moved into a few years ago, and her brand-new litter of babies had all died. (See, some kitties DO have reasons to be mean. I mean, OTHER than just ’cause they want to.)
She clearly wanted to be loved and petted, but at random (short) intervals, she’d sink her teeth and all 493 very sharp claws into flesh. She was the kind of kitty you couldn’t play the wiggly-fingers-under-the-sheet game with, because she’d consider the wiggly-sheet-lump for two seconds and then remove your arm above the elbow. She is not one to fool around with half-arse solutions, no sir.
But with love, patience, and loads of antibacterial ointment, now she only bites me when I really have it coming, like when I tell people she’s getting soft. But she still has no mercy on toilet paper or newspapers or phone books. I try real hard to point her to inanimate objects to vent her dental aggression. All you intractable Meankitties mock her at your peril.

Name: Pumpkin (2)
I'll help wash dishes by licking off the tuna scraps. Then I'll bite you.
What makes Pumpkin so mean?
Pumpkin was a stray kitten who came into my apartment, sat down by the fridge, and adopted me. I had no choice in the matter. Now he is 15 lbs. of pure mean kitty power.
I left him alone one weekend overnight and he shredded a roll of paper towels, dumped his watering jug, and tossed his food bowl upside down. That will teach me! Pumpkin was also very stressed recently following a traumatic incident of overturning the parakeet’s cage and bit me on the finger with four sharp teeth. After losing over one week of work and gaining many medical bills, I have learned my lesson and will be a better human owner.
