Texas Man Airlifted To Hospital After Fight With Cat

CLEVELAND, TX. – Last Friday afternoon, a Cleveland man was airlifted to a Houston hospital after reportedly getting in a fight with a cat. The wounds he sustained were serious enough that he required specialized attention that wasn’t offered at the Cleveland Regional Medical Center, where he was first driven via ambulance.

While it remains unclear who started the fight between the man and the cat, the cat – a tabby – seems to have been the instigator; according to the Cleveland Advocate, it “attacked” the man.

Both the man and the cat sustained significant injuries as the result of a knife the man was holding.

The cat, who was mortally wounded, was taken to the Big Thicket Animal Hospital, and was later euthanized by a veterinarian. Both the cat and the man remain unidentified. TC mark

EDIT! Cleveland, Texas – not Cleveland, Ohio. Was wondering why he would have to go all the way to Texas for treatment…
