I am fairly certain the cat, Mycah, is trying to kill me.
Her methods mainly consist of attempts to break my neck by tripping me as I go down the stairs, exsanguination via repeatedly clawing at my leg (said activity cleverly disguised as an effort to obtain cat treats), and asphyxiation through the use of wads of cat hair.
Occasionally she tries weapons. Here, she has been photographed waiting — weapon close at
hand paw — for me to come through the front door:
Note to the authorities: If I should happen to be found lifeless in my home, the cat did it.
She hardly looks the type, does she?
