Goliath the Huge Cat

When the Oregon Humane Society got a call that a stray cat was stuck in a doggy door, they didn’t quite know what to expect. It seems this cat had been going into the garage, through the doggy door, and eating all the pet food in the garage every night. The “free for all buffet” caused the cat’s weight to skyrocket until it could no longer fit through the doggy door. The Oregon Human Society rescued the cat and named him Goliath. The Oregonian got a hold of the story and created this video about Goliath…

Cat Jumps From Pole While Being Rescued

Firefighters arrived to help and as a firefighter got to the top of the pole to get the cat, the cat did a leaping jump – one of the biggest cat jumps I’ve ever seen – and safely landed on the grass while looking like it was gliding like a flying squirrel.

Cat Warms Up to Cop

(Cats in the News) This is a news story about a cat and a cop. Out on routine patrol, a police officer pulls over a motorist. The cop gets out of his car and goes to talk to the driver. But the cop has a friendly stalker – a cat in the background. And the cat warms up to the cop and stars crawling all over him while the cop is trying to issue a citation. The cop has to forcefully (and such thing as “friendly force”?) remove the cat several times and shoo it away. But this is one persistent kitty who wants the cop to know how important he is to the cat. Here’s the news story…
