Yes, but the dog was going after a smaller dog's and my hand got between them. The dog sensed it and released, but it still broke skin and bruised.

yes, i was twice bitten by the same stray cat (i named him Gus): he was what appeared to be a beautiful seal point Himalayan with the deepest, bluest eyes i'd ever seen. sadly, someone had mistreated him horribly~someone had poured car oil ALL over him & he would not let me help clean him, he would accept food from me so i fed him & as it was winter & had been rainy, i provided him a little shelter, but he was afraid to go inside so he would lay on top of it & just be drenched, so sad. it broke my heart. so i told him that i would take care of him as much as he would let me & after about a month, he started to talk to me. he would not let me touch him, but he did not cower away from me & both times when he bit me it was when i was feeding him, the first time, he bit my lower arm when i was picking up his dish to put more food down~i think he thought i was taking his food away & he was just still hungry (poor baby) & the second time, he bit my leg when i got between him & his food & another stray i was feeding. my GORGEOUS Gus eventually got clean, he would stay around for breakfast & dinner & i bought him a little tent that he would finally actually go inside of when the weather turned colder & wetter~he trusted me that far. & i was grateful for that time i had with him although he never let me pet him, i understood. after three months, he started showing up less often & then not at all ~ i hope i gave him so
