Rocco’s owner describes him thus:
Rocco is the kind of cat that draws blood from guests and my kids run screaming from the room when he saunters in. I have to lock him in a bedroom when the kids’ babysitter comes over.
I can relate. I once had a cat named Wolfgang who was so vicious toward everyone but me that my then-boyfriend and I had one of those “It’s Me Or The Cat” conversations.
I married the boy. The cat went to live with my in-laws; and everyone lived happily ever after.
Rocco’s portrait will be in my calendar, an homage to dangerous cats everywhere.
