At some point during the attack, the man and the cat reportedly were injured by a knife the man was holding. The man was taken to Cleveland Regional Medical Center before being transported to Houston.
Thus disproving the theory that a litte pussy never hurt anyone.
So the guy was so severely injured that, even after being evaluated and presumably stabilized by a physician at Cleveland Regional Medical Center, he was still so bad off he needed a helicopter? But hey, I'm also the guy that personally took care of a double-fatality ostrich attack, so I suppose anything is possible.
Based upon my experience with Houston rush hour traffic, a 49-mile ambulance trip could easily take 3-4 hours, so maybe it was necessary.
I think the lesson we can all draw from this is that, when dealing with strange pussy, condoms are not enough.
Hat tip to reader Matthew Woelfersheim for bringing this to my attention.
