Nah I think you were right the first time. Cats are just evil. Your dog should learn quickly how to snap their necks.

@dlowan,
Our snake killers worked together in a very clear way.

Son cat cavorted at the front end to distract while mum cat snuck up behind and delivered a killer blow to the neck. These were baby brown snakes.....extremely dangerous....and our hero cats killed an entire hatching. I am happy with snakes, but a passel of poison in your garden was a bit much.

My Miranda I never attacked dogs unprovoked, but her joy in riding them out of town was hilarious. And I do mean riding....her favourite move was to jump onto their backs and rake their faces with her claws while they galloped frenziedly away, screaming for their mummies. Her face when they headed for her was pure: "Make my day!" and her expression when she dismounted and strutted home was priceless.

@ossobuco,
All cats have a hunting instinct. I suggest if it's your cat, it might need a new home. Check the dogs scrapes to make sure they're not green, that means they're infected. Call your veterinarian and describe his cuts and they might help him/her feel better. I hope your dog is ok!

@roger,
Fastest cat in my experience was Margaret.

There's a story behind Margaret.
We saw her one dawn peeking out from the Chevy Apache truckbed.
Fed her. Did the usual, checking shelters if there were calls re such a cat, putting up signs, looking for signs.
Called the woman who would later be my business partner, very competent with animals and has a mushy heart on top of that. We long argued about that conversation, but I felt perfectly good to drop off - half way across LA - Margaret behind her business door in what, I don't remember, an ok container, since I said I would, with time, and so on. She remembers Margaret as a surprise cat.

She was of course always wrong, except when I was. Anyway, Margaret became part of her menagerie.

Sometime later, I was a consultant to her firm, doing my own designing in my own place the rest of the time. But I had a desk and area set up there, a completely wonderful studio, as it happens.

Garcia and Margaret were there, as was often the doberman before the oft mentioned Derby.

So one day I was drawing away, pencil, very big plan, many hours into it, let's say 3 x 4 feet very detailed, and Margaret dropped onto the drawing. Like a flash I had her and tossed her.
I still have a visible scar approaching five inches long.

@voice of Logic 700,
Welcome to a2k, voice.

This is not my cats we're talking about. We're talking about cats besetting Boomerang's dog, in her neighborhood.

@boomerang,
My neighbor had a cat like that when I was a kid. The cat knew me and I could pet and stuff no problem.

Well one day just walking to go over my friend's house, the damn cat, hid in the bushes and just as I walked by (in the summer - shorts on), the cat jumped out at me, jumped up my leg, claws in and took a bite outta me.

Yeah cats just sometimes do stuff like that - I find it tends to be the ones that are allowed outdoors. My indoor cats were wimps and never bit (other than playful nipping) or scratched.

@Rockhead,
My cat as a kid used to jumped over the backyard fence and terrorize the german shepard dog that lived behind us. He never actually attacked the dog, just would hiss and stuff at him. The dog was tied up and would be terrified of the cat.

Cats like to do stuff like that. It is their entertainment.

@boomerang,
If it is of any incidental interest, qua canine nature:
even domesticated dog pets, when alone in the streets
with their fellows, naturally revert to a savage state, in a pack.

Humen have been known to be savage also, too ofen.
That is just the shape of this world.

I have had, and continue to bear good will, toward both felines & canines.

When I was 9, in Arizona, a blue-eyed Siamese cat tried to eviscerate me.
He dug deep and long on the inside of my left forearm; painful.
He was lucky he didn 't get shot. I 'm right handed.
He turned me (abruptly) into a racist against Siamese cats, to this day.
I have had many OTHER cats.
