VICTORIA, B.C. – A cat took on seven pit bulls and their owner Monday, and it turned out about how you’d expect: With one of the dogs at the vet and their owner in the emergency room.

Victoria’s Kyla Grover said she was out walking her dogs Monday night when the cat, named Baby, launched itself out a yard.

“The cat is swiping at them and latched onto one of the dog’s faces,” Grover told the Victoria Times Colonist. “I got bit and scratched in the process of trying to separate them.

“I spent the whole night at emergency because cat bites are nasty.”

The Times Colonist reported that the cat’s owner agreed to foot a $222 veterinarian bill for one of the dogs, Bandida, which ended up with a scratched face.

The cat’s owner, 78-year-old Betty Jean Thompson, that the cat was startled when one of the dogs showed a friendly interest.

“She’s kind of a slow sort of thinking cat, but one thing is she is very protective of me,” Thompson said.
