A man was trying to relax on Saturday night when he was attacked by a feral cat that flew at him in a terrifying and bloody encounter.

Truck driver Adam Whitehouse, from QLD, told the Sunshine Coast Daily[2], that he was letting his nine month old cat, Billy, out of the house when the monster appeared. Mr Whitehouse described the animal as the size of a small cattle dog with black, shiny fur.

He was dumbfounded by the size of the animal. ‘It was the biggest cat I’ve ever seen,’ he said.

In a heroic move to save his own pet from the danger, the feral animal launched at his calf.

‘It grabbed the back of my calf muscle on my leg and it wouldn’t let go,’ he said.

‘I grabbed its tail and and started punching it to get it off me and it latched on to my arms.’

‘It just hung on – it was not going to let go.’

Mr Whitehouse’s stepson tried to help him in the brawl but the wild animal could not be stopped, as shown by bloody injuries.

Eventually, after the strenuous hustle, the feral cat let go and disappeared. It was then, that Mr Whitehouse was met with excruciating pain from the biting and clawing attacker.

Mr Whitehouse compared the muscles of the cat with a punching bag as his body took the burden in the tussle.

He believes that the animal would not face trouble at ripping up a decent-sized dog either.

The cat had pierced his teeth into his calf and knuckle joint, leaving him swelling, as well as scratches down his arms and side of his body.

‘It was horrific, (the teeth) went in quite deep,’ he said.

There have been previous reports of big-cat sightings in the area, however, Mr Whitehouse is convinced that he only crossed paths with a feral cat.
