    If I understand the article correctly, then this cat, which has an obvious problem is on Prozac, and he happens to be bi-polar, then it could make his behaviour worse. :eek:

    I hope it will be a happy ending for Lewis !! :-*

    An aggressive cat should always be examined by a veterinarian to rule out general medical conditions that may contribute to such behavior.

    Hi ~*Nat*~,

    The cat in your pic is a Marbled Bengal.Have one myself ,not marbled though.

    This breed of cat doesn't seem bothered by water like other breeds are.

    They are very pretty, aren't they ?
    And very interesting to have as a pet. :D

    Seems like my 3 cats have some of the traits like the bengalcat...though they look nothing like them !!

    The Verdict is In
    Judge Spares Life of Lewis the Cat


    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (June 20) - A state judge on Tuesday spared the life of Lewis the cat, whose vicious attacks on neighbors landed his owner in court, but the terrorizing tomcat was ordered confined to the house at all times.

    Lewis the cat was accused of ambushing at least six people, including the Avon lady. Owner Ruth Cisero chose trial in an attempt to have the animal's life spared.

    "There are no exceptions. None," Judge Patrick Carroll told Lewis' owner, Ruth Cisero.

    If Lewis gets out, even accidentally, Cisero could face up to 6 months in prison, and Lewis' fate would be in the hands of animal control officers.

    Cisero had faced a charge of reckless endangerment because neighbors complained that the gray and white cat's long claws and stealth had allowed it to attack at least a half-dozen people. Some who were bitten and scratched ended up seeking treatment at hospitals.

    The judge ordered Cisero to complete two years of probation, after which her record will be expunged.

    Cisero had fought to keep Lewis, and rejected a previous probation deal because it was contingent on euthanizing the cat.

    "I never thought it would come to this," she said. "It's been an absolute nightmare. It's ruined my life."

    The cat's case has drawn national attention, with Lewis appearing in People magazine and on his own page on MySpace.com. A Utah animal sanctuary offered to take the cat, but Eugene Riccio, Cisero's attorney, said Lewis enjoys life in southern New England and wants to stay.
