One of my cats, Sinbad, like to sit on the top of the back of my computer chair and sleep. One day a couple months ago, he and his brother Rambo were going through their usual morning routine of chasing each other around the apartment and basically just raising ****. Sinbad jumped on my computer keyboard while I was doing my sit-ups and I got up on my knees to swipe him off of it. Now, I didn't notice at the time that while I was on my knees, my face was at the EXACT same height that the back of the computer chair was at. So as I go to push Sinbad off of the keyboard, he jumped to the back of the chair; right in front of my face. Normally this wouldn't have mattered, as my cats aren't prone to trying to kill me (as far as I know) but since he was still in a frantic state of mind from being chased around by his brother, he swipes at my face, claws out and everything, and completely nails my eyeball. The most pain I have ever been in. Ever. And I had to go to the emergency room and get disinfected, bandaged, and prescribed pain killers. It was completely nuts. I thought about taking him to the animal shelter and giving him up briefly, but I figured he probably didn't mean to do that and he was just freaking out. And we haven't had any incidents since :lol:

Ouch!

Stormy once scratched at my eye, but luckily my lid closed in time and she just got my eyelid instead of the eye. It still hurt and swelled a bit the next few days. She's never done it again, so maybe the way I jumped up and yelled convinced her it hadn't been a good idea!

I don't think she was trying to hurt me... this was right after I got them and she was still young. I think she was just asking me to play, like she'd wrestle with her sister.

I bet Sinbad wanted to say sorry. :)

Don't worry, when my grandmother was trying to groom one of my cats, Lucky, she got bitten really hard in the hand, and it swelled up like a balloon and it was very painful for her. Lucky on the other hand HATES being groomed but he probably didn't mean to cause so much pain too!
