The Cat of Pure Evil

I went to visit my parents yesterday, in Lytham. I thought I would introduce you to Diego the cat. He is nicknamed the Cat of Pure Evil, because of his malevolent stare that he casts disdainfully onto you like Medusa. He has a particular dislike of small children (although he is not that keen on adults either) and keeps a paw free and ready to swipe at all times. In fact my neices and nephews won't go into the same room as him. He hates other cats with a passion and all have learned not to come into his garden.


My parents try not to let him go upstairs, a rule that he blatantly disregards.


Many are the scratches his claws have inflicted.

Has he any redeeming features?

He loves my parents more than any other and will climb onto their knee and sleep for hours, purring loudly.

But he will keep that paw free, just in case.....

  1. Sounds like jealousy, "they are mine and no one else is allowed near"! Weird.

  7. Needed a break from the events here in the states. This was a funny post, thanks!! I have a cat that might be described as that as well. :-)

  8. We used to have a cat like that, he used to lie along the back of the settee and swipe us as we walked past, he liked a certain amount of stroking, but if we saw the end of the tail twitch we learnt to stop very very quickly, it was a very efficient early warning system!

  9. Diego sounds like my kind of cat. I have a cat who bites and scratches. It is an effective relationship. She tells and I do. She often wakes us in the night because she would like some food. She sheds a lot. She snores. She prefers to eat raw prawns, handed to her one at a time. She often misses the kitty litter tray and cleaning the bathroom floor does get tiresome. Poor thing. She hates laps but will lie on the bed with me. My cat reminds me that not all people are the same but they all need and deserve love. She shows her love in unconventional ways and that suits me just fine.

  10. Our Salem used to be like Diego. He`s now mellowed over the years and has gooten used to waking me in the morning by purring loudly into my ear. He also goes as far as gently biting my nose if I don`t rouse quick enough. He knows when we are supposed to go to work, and has tailored his pleading for food around our timings. So, how dare I not get up at weekends or other days off. If I`m not up by 6.25 am he will walk all over the bed and me, then stick his wet and cold nose in my face before biting my nose. He used to swipe at us a few years ago, but is a layed back and chilled out moggy now. Diego might mellow with time, too.

  12. I am impressed by the courage you displayed in bravely following the Cat of Pure Evil just to post the story for us. I also noticed your cunning strategy of not getting TOO close! A truly brave man!!!

  14. Hehe, my aunt's cat has a reputation for being a bit of a psycho! It beats up their dog, which is probably ten times its size!

    My cat dribbled on you to show he cared, lol. :)
