Big cat tried to attack my kitty through the window!

I was just about to drift off to sleep when I heard this growling outside my window in the bedroom. But it wasn't coming from my cat. I wasn't sure what the noise was at first, since I live near a busy road.

I had left the window blinds a quarter of the way up so my little kitty could look out. I heard her do a little trill and thought, okay, something is up here. I got up and saw another cat, sitting a few feet away from the window. It charged the window and ran into it, ready to rip my kitty apart. That gave me a heart attack! The window got all fogged up, and that cat was huge! I closed the blinds and I am not opening them ever again at night. It freaked me out, I have never had an animal try and bust into my house like that.

The noise the big cat had made was like nothing I had ever heard before. I would call it a roar or a cat shout. I am used to them making those high pitch wails when they want to fight.

Has anyone else had your cat meet another cat from outside the window? My kitten is fairly young (7 months old), and I am also wondering why she is always so friendly towards other cats. She just makes those little trills and follows around other cats, regardless of how much they growl, hiss or puff themselves up at her. Is it her age that makes her so friendly or her personality?

Most kitties are friendly to other cats, especially if they had litter mates and were not taken away from them too early (before 7 wks.) and were not a single kitty. She's still immature but her attitude to a cat outside the window will likely change as she matures and regards her home as her territory. The cat outside the window was likely an unneutered male and regards your house as in his territory, so that was what all the h\noise was about. Some neutered males tho can be very territorial as well. You may find that he may spray on your windows or doors. I know cats can smell another cat in a house even tho the windows are close as most windows are not air tight. Yes, keep the blinds drawn at night so this outside cat doesn't see your kitty even tho he knows she's inside. Keep her inside too, or it is certain this cat will beat her up....he sounds quite aggressive.

Oh sorry to hear. We have lots of outdoor cats here as well. Our front door gets sprayed a lot particularly in the Summer or it could be it's more pungent then because of the heat. I've never had an outside cat try to attack my cats so I can imagine that would be so scary. I've had male cats try to woo my girls through the window also. I have one male who keeps coming back to stare at one of my female's on a pretty regular basis, but it's not aggressive, however, I do have a male who is about 7 months old so this may cause issues down the line.

We had a little gray female appropriately named "Mischief" who met a stray cat in the window one night, and let out the most blood-curdling yowl I've ever heard. When we went rushing in there to see what had happened, we found her tail puffed up like a bottle brush. She did not like that stray prowling around her house!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one - Methos has an ongoing feud with PuddyClone. They scream at each other & the blinds are suffering.

The only time Cinderella escaped was when a HUGE orange guy started hanging out on the porch. She was not happy about it. This cat was the biggest cat I've ever seen in person, even to this day. I got up one morning and she was gone and the screen had been broken out from the inside. The next two hours were the longest week of my life.

Sounds terrifying! Keep the blinds down and make sure you can see your cat from wherever you are in your house, just so you know she's safe. Don't open the windows in rooms where you're not able to supervise. The sprinkler sounds good. Try and see if it works. Good luck!
