Sylvina Grace

 


Dear friends, we had something truly awful happen last night. Vina was attacked in her own home, by a guest's male pit bull. She was closed up in the bedroom but this foul beast pushed open the door and tried to kill her.

It had to literally be pulled off of beautiful Vina. She lost some fur but otherwise seems to be physically unharmed. It was so close! A few more seconds and that would not have been true.

Emotionally she's suffered a great trauma. I got to see her late last night. Her eyes... she looked so shattered, distraught. So would anyone who had their sense of safety at home destroyed. 

Even worse, Brekke was in that room too. It's unknown, but most likely pack instinct would have kicked in. They have always been on good terms, and it's heartbreaking to think Brekke could have been part of something so terrible.

  1. Oh, no, how awful, we're so sorry to read this. :-(

    Our purrs and purrayers to Vina, poor sweetie. We hope the visitors have left now and that the dog, at least, never returns.

  2. That is terrible! Poor Vina, what a dreadful thing to happen in her own home, her place of safety. I am glad she is physically okay, but the mental trauma must be terrible.

  5. That poor kitty. I dislike pit bulls and in general don't trust dogs for this reason. XO

  6. How awful! Poor Vina. I'm sure she has PTSD from this. My human has never liked dogs just for this reason. She does not trust most of them. And especially pit bulls. Unless they have been trained around cats, they can be deadly. Which is sad, because they have the potential to be sweethearts.

  10. We left you a longer than normal comment yesterday and of course it went right into space. Mom didn't have the patience to recreate it, so we're back tonight to say the most important thing, which is we hope Vina can reestablish her peace sooner than later.

  12. I don't like nor trust pit bulls. I don't care what their owners and proponents say They are not to be trusted and calling the "pittes" to make them seem harmless will never endear them to me. The are totally untrustworthy. Poor Vina. I would give a lot to take that away from her memory and little body.
