Melvin, Mich. (WJBK) -
A Fox 2 News viewer sent in video using the upload tool on and titled it 'a horrible cat attack.'

Play the video in the player above to see the startling attack. FOX 2 News app users, watch the video here.

Also play a video report from Fox 2's Amy Lange who met with Maxx, the attack victim, to find out what happened.

Melvin, Michigan resident Maxx says all she was trying to do was protect her mother's dog.

This summer she had taken in a stray cat, whom she named 'Buddy.'

On November 30, 'Buddy' attempted to attack the dog and that's when Maxx tried to shoo him away.

As you see in the video taken by a security camera, she tries kicking snow at him. 'Buddy' responds by leaping at her head.

He sinks his teeth front and back teeth into her forehead, causing a gash. He also claws her face, leaving marks on her cheeks.

"Your first reaction was to get him off and when I went to go pull, I could feel his teeth," says Maxx.

Maxx ended up in the hospital and says she ended up getting an infection that manifested into cellulitis, causing her face to swell. (See the photo she submitted.)

Sanilac County officials picked up the cat and tested it for rabies. To do that, 'Buddy' had to be put down. The tests came back negative.

Maxx, who owns three other cats says, "I actually saved him from someone who was going put him down and he was sweet as pie. When they came to get him I couldn't even watch because even though he did that to me, I couldn't see them take him away because I knew what they were going do to him."

Maxx says she is still a cat lover and that she would try to save another stray if she could.

I COPIED the extract.

She should had been punished, and they should not have hurt the poor cat or murdered it. One rule for humans, and another for other species. Its so wrong.
