One difference between cats and dogs

Ga. Crash Victim Says Dog Saved Her Life

THOMASVILLE, Ga. — A south Georgia woman bloodied in a car wreck says she owes her life to a German shepherd who _ thankfully _ just wouldn’t stay in his yard. Shannon Lorio says that after her car careened down an embankment, the wayward dog found her bruised and battered on the vehicle’s trunk, pulled her by her shirt collar, dragged her about 50 yards through briars to a highway . . .

There are, of course, cats as large as German Shepherds – therefore physically capable of this feat.

However, such a cat is more likely to drag a person 50 yards away from the highway in order to enjoy an undisturbed meal.

Update 5:02PM : I did not forget about large canine predators in the wild. I’ve heard of Wolves. I understand I’m comparing domesticated canines to undomesticated felines.

The point being that, aside from the fact Paris Hilton couldn’t carry one in her handbag, there are reasons we haven’t domesticated even Felis rufus at 20 pounds.

Next up would be Lynx canadensis topping out at maybe 40 pounds.

Comparable in weight to a Shepherd, we have the 90 – 150 pound Felis concolor.

“Nice kitty. How about a treat?! …….SIT! SIT!! …………………SH*T…”
