Cats do not always appreciate what people do for them.

According to a report filed by a Laclede County Sheriff’s Department deputy, he was called to Mercy Hospital Lebanon for an animal bite report.

A 35-year-old woman reported that a cat, which runs loose on her property, was “kind of her cat” and bit her as she tried to brush its teeth.

She told the deputy she tried to brush its teeth because she feels dental hygiene is important.
