The dentist has lost two teeth due to a feral cat that had broken into his home and then escaped.
The owner of the home where the attack took place, who did not want to be named, said his two sons had to call him to find out what had happened.
“We were at home when a neighbour rang me and he said they had seen a feral dog inside and was coming towards our home,” he told the ABC.
“I called the police and then we were informed by a veterinary surgeon.”
They went into the house and they took out the cat, but the owner of that cat is now at the hospital and is receiving treatment.
“The owner said his sons were able to get to the scene of the attack and found the owner inside the house.”
He was sitting in the yard and I couldn’t get him out of the house, so I put my hand on the cat and it was running around the yard,” he said.”
It was trying to eat the carpet and the house furniture and the wall.
“The dog, which was described as being between six and eight weeks old, was eventually recaptured and was taken to the vet.
Mr Smith said the owner had already spent the night in hospital, but he was recovering well.”
The vet is trying to recover the other teeth from the cat,” he explained.”
But he’s still recovering.
