Update on Lewis.....and More

It looks like Lewis the attack cat is going to beat his date with the executioner! It seems that Lewis's owner is not taking the probation and going to court in defense of Lewis. Ruth Cisero, Lewis's owner, withdrew her bid for special probation and opted for a trial because Lewis would have to be euthanized. Even I jumped on the Free Lewis bandwagon and posted a story to keep him alive and free. Here is a quote from one of Lewis's neighbor:
"He attacks from the back," Kettman said."You never see it coming. He has six toes on every foot, which constitutes a very formidable weapon."
Kettman said she was attacked twice by Lewis the cat. "I fear for the people on Sunset Circle," Kettman said. "Whenever you go out, you look in back of you to see if there is anything stalking you."
Kettman says she was a champion racquetball player, but at 76, the retired nurse is no match for Lewis. In the second attack last December, Kettman said Lewis bit her three times and left about eight deep scratches. Poor Granny! Buy some pepper spray.
"He will not retreat," Kettman said. "His mouth is open and his tail is swishing." Umm, here's a clue, do not pet the cat.......
"Also, he gives out mixed signals," Kettman continued. "He would sidle against you and purr. You bend down to pet him and he'd attack you."
Neighbors also say they have been terrorized by Lewis, saying the cat's long claws and stealth have allowed the cat to attack at least a 6 people and ambush the Avon lady as she was getting out of her car. I think the Avon lady was up to no-good and Lewis knew it! Amongst the rumors started, Kettman said "There have been unconfirmed sightings lately of Lewis at 5 a.m." Sounds like sour grapes! A few animal-rights protesters showed up Tuesday wearing T-shirts in support of Cisero and Lewis.
"They want to kill a cat for a scratch," said Marisa Sampieri of Fairfield, one of the cat's supporters. "These people have to get a life." Oh yeah, Marisa says it best-those neighbors need to get a life or maybe this kitty Kentucky Family Fights to Keep'KITTY' Their Pet Lion should move into thier neighborhood and they'll leave poor misunderstood Lewis alone. I want to thank CNN.com because they have covered Lewis's case extremely well.

Its HOT today, I just came by the bank about an hour ago and it was 99 degrees. I wish I had a pool, even a tiny wading pool.....maybe Ill go to Wal-Mart and buy a kiddie pool. Ours from last year had a hole in it by the end of summer..........

Please check out Southern Sass on Criminal Activity Today she has a post up on a possible serial killer connection with all of the missing/murdered/dead young men in the midwest region. Honestly, it is not as far-fetched as it sounds. And who says serial killers only target women and children?

And I was wearing a jacket and pants on my run tonight because I was chilly.

The stupidity of people just depresses me. Lewis the cat would be welcome here...he could keep away unwanted visitors selling everything from religion to crap.

Any animal will bite if provoked. Our three cats are all indoors only and big pussies.

Thanks for the info. I guess my real question is, I can get into a vision trance and I wanted to know if it was all right to write about Native American cultures? I do not want to cross any boundries. Let me know about your tribe. Send me an e-mail if you would like to talk.

By the way, good morning. New post today.

cowgirl-heehee, lewis sounds like a cool cat! My sister has a cat that could be his twin except about 10pounds heavier, and has his personality but her cat likes me for some reason......so I think Lewis would get along great at my home too.....just open the door on the unsuspecting Jehovahs or whoever they are, heehee

Brian-Ive been waiting for your new post! Our little dog bites unprovoked, he can just be mean to male strangers but I keep control of him. As for Lewis, I think hes cool!
