What do you think I am, a freakin’ poster kitty?
What makes Lars so mean?
Yes, he does look like a bobcat, doesn’t he? Main Coons are supposed to be part lynx. Lars is the Old Cat. He’s big. He’s sweet. He drools. All he wants is love.
When he was younger, he was known as King Lars. The self-appointed Guardian of the Sidewalks. A frightened child, a squeaking puppy, a cornered cat — and Lars would levitate across yard, fence and leg to put the hurt on their antagonist. He mistook the happy friendliness of a border collie when the dog’s mere size made a little pup squeal in fear. Lars treed — TREED — the dog up his owner. The dog trampled about on his master’s shoulders while Lars patrolled like a Yard Nazi around the man’s feet. I had to rescue them both.
Another time, a neighbor was babysitting a big dog that meant no harm and just wanted to play. But the dog got too near one of Lars’s cats. The little cat spat, and Lars heard it. Not only did the neighbor have to run through the yard into the alley with the terrified dog — but Lars took a shortcut to head them off. If I hadn’t stopped Lars, they’d still be screaming down the alley.
I’ll show them for making me pose…I’ll chew up the book!
Lars has gotten old and very crippled. He walks like a turtle, hunch-backed, a sore step at a time. Poor old man.
But do not –repeat– DO NOT attempt to pick him up or help him when his back is bothering him. The only teeth he has left are his fangs, and they’re nearly an inch long. He can — and HAS — sent a helpful person to the emergency room. With a hand swollen up like a football.
Pet him. Praise him. Just don’t pick him up.

What they don’t know is I pee on the other bathmats, too, it just doesn’t show stains, heh heh heh
What makes Laf so mean?
This evil feline is named ‘Laf (short for Tulaf — don’t ask). He has his own theme song to strut to. Why is he so mean? Let me list several of his less charming qualities:
1. He’s a fighter, not a lover. When someone tries to give him some much-needed loving, he growls.
2. He DEMANDS fresh, cool water from the sink. The stream must flow at the just the right speed and temperature, or he sneezes and wipes his paws all over the mirror in disdain.
3. Occasionally, he likes to pee on the fluffy white bathmats just to assert his evil dominance.
4. ‘Laf gets very excited about his vittles, sometimes a little too excited. When he over-stuffs his fat face, he will puke by the trashcan.
5. He licks himself, in dog-like fashion, in front of his human slaves. This is just WRONG!
But, like many bullies, he’s really a softie underneath the rogue exterior — he sucks on a leopard-print pillow when he thinks no one’s looking.

If you won't scratch that spot on my back, I'll do it myself.
What makes Lady so mean?
Here’s Lady, my meankitty. She’s the smartest cat I’ve ever known, and I know she’s always plotting devious things when I’m not looking. She loves to chew on plastic bags and she can get into almost anything. I had to put childproof locks on my cabinets because she was getting into the cleaning supplies!
She’s very talkative, especially when she sees a bird out the window, but she doesn’t meow like a normal cat, she chirps and gurgles. Her more mentally-challenged brother, Tuffy, is the sweetest orange fluff ever, so because of that she gets really jealous if we pay attention to him. She’ll butt in and chase him off our laps and then decide she’s tired of us and go eat.
I swear, you're utterly useless. I'm reporting you to the SOHC.
If you pick her up, beware! She hates any confined space, and our old vet had a Caution note on her file because she was so hard to handle. When she jumps up on our bed to step all over us, she points her paws down so it hurts (she has no front claws so she has to get creative). She’s a smart, mean kitty but we love her…

And you wonder why I want to go outside…
What makes Lebron so mean?
Lebron is for sure a mean kitty. He is an inside-outside kitty. We have mixed feelings about this, but we desided to do this with him since he has a flair for peeing on our futon sofa. No matter how much time he is out, though, he comes inside to pee on the futon. We have to keep a plastic protector under the cover! LOL!
Gonna spell “Urophobia”–something I do not have–and take triple word score!
He also loves to perch on the table while my mother and I play scrabble. He waits until he has a chance, and he scoops up a scrabble tile for himself. He is a little stinker!
Also, he likes to pee in the bathroom sink. This morning, he did so when I was not looking, and then he “buried” it with the clean clothing I just put on the counter in preparation for getting ready for work. Evil!
Could you PLEASE put those nice warm clothes beside the sink so I can hide my scent from predators? Is that too much to ask?
He is a lovely, affectionate cat, but he cries and cries when he wants attention until he is payed his due. He is a true mean kitty!!!

Name: Leo (tabby) and Sammie (black)
Quick...let's share the cat tree peacefully for a minute so it ruins the picture she's trying to take for Meankitty!
What makes Leo and Sammie so mean?
From rescue cats to cat-divas! Leo and Sammie don’t like each other one bit and fight over who gets to be the “top cat” on the cat condo. Sammie in particular has had a rough life. He is a tripod and thinks he can use that to his advantage. He loves to bite my head and ears and bat at my nose at 4am because HE WANTS TO EAT. When they get the “midnight crazies” there is no stopping them. And at Christmas time, guess who tries to eat the little decorative tree? Leo! And of course he does it in the middle of the night.
Humans are so judgy! Artificial trees TASTE better as an after-midnight snack.

To be honest, I shredded the dog for grins, not to protect the humans.
What makes Lilith so mean?
This mean kitty is named Lilith and she is the Queen of the house. She likes to sharpen her claws on the sofa arms and the leather recliner. Her favorite pastime is making biscuits on the soft bellies of her human subjects. While this sounds very sweet, she like to use her claws and leave marks to show us who’s the boss.
She protects us as well as ruling with an iron paw. She once shredded the nose of an overly curious dog that ran into her kingdom. No door is ever closed to this regent and no mousy toy is safe.

I have an advanced degree in stealth and hiding. That's why my location is unknown!
What makes Libby so mean?
Christmas 2005: My parents and I traveled to the local animal shelter in search of a new kitten for me. We had become a foster family to our neighbor’s kitten but we had to give the kitten back because she was a gift for our neighbor’s daughter. My parents had their hearts set on a different cat, but Libby reached out, grabbed my coat, and would not let me go. If I started to look at other cats she would meow very loud and begin to play with the toys they had inside her cage, trying to get me to look at her. I was instantly smitten.
We adopted her and she quickly created a new ranking system in our family. The four other cats, all males, are terrified of her! She strikes the fear of God into their hearts with just one look from those bright green eyes. Before they enter the room they each check all four corners and any other area she may hide in so they will not be caught off guard. They never look hard enough. They also have been subjected to other cruel attacks. They have been shoved down the stairs, pushed into the running shower, and when they try to defend themselves, it angers her even more and they get the crap beat out of them.
She is a very intelligent cat. Before she was a year old she had learned how to open and unlock doors. She was so clever we were forced to put a child-proof doorknob on some of the doors so she couldn’t get in. She throws temper tantrums if she does not get her way. If you tell her no, she will stare into your eyes and knock over something as if saying, “Take this!”
She also has a strong obsession with pens and pencils. She is always taking them away from me when I’m trying to do my homework

Well, Bob, it's like this. You can sleep on the couch, or I can slice up your face. Your choice.
What makes Liam so mean?
This is Liam. He came to live with us about a year ago, and is definitely one MEAN kitty. Please note the evil spider pattern between his ears. I am certain this is some type of mark of a mean kitty.
This is his favorite spot, which is where I sleep. He and I have been engaged in a struggle over this particular spot for the past year, and as you can see, he’s winning. He is a big cat, and has BIG claws. He never hesitates to use those claws to defend his space on the bed. He also likes to lay on his back and invite unsuspecting visitors to my house to rub his tummy, at which time he will shred them like confetti.

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.

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.
