The crazed cat went for the pit bull’s eyes and nose. The dog is lucky to be in as good a shape as she’s in.

A pit bull owner is calling for a change to animal bylaws in Saanich, B.C., after her dog was viciously attacked by a cat.
Javiera Rodriguez told CBC News a house cat attacked her pit bull while they were out for a walk with a group of six other pit bulls and their owners on Monday evening.
“The cat actually ran towards the dogs and started swiping at [my] dog’s face,” Rodriguez said.
Her three-year-old dog, Bandida, suffered scratches on the face, ears and chin. Rodriguez was also scratched in the attack. She described the cat as being average in size with white fluffy fur.
Kyla Grover, the owner of two of the other dogs on the walk, said she couldn’t believe what she saw.
“At first I was just shocked that this cat would go after seven dogs,” she said. “I thought it would get scared and run away but it never did.”
She said she stepped in to help halt the attack.
“Bandida being a pit bull, I knew if something were to happen she would get blamed and I couldn’t have that happen, so I just needed to get them apart,” she said.
Grover also received puncture wounds and scratches that had to be treated in an emergency room, which took five hours she said.
