Beware of Cats Bearing Fangs

(New York Daily News) A Bronx couple who ran an animal shelter have been hit with a $2 million lawsuit by a woman who claims she was given a "crazed" hellcat that viciously attacked her.

Retired waitress Barbara Pinchbeck, 70, says she wanted to adopt a friendly feline, but Jamie and Alan Turell brought her a black cat with a bad attitude named Wheezer.

The feisty furball went berserk on its first night in Pinchbeck's Putnam County home, leaving her with serious injuries, court papers say.

Like a rhombus in a square

And we're left to wonder
