Stray cat attacks a woman

JONESBORO, Ark. – While some cats can be friendly, stray cats are often capable of explosive violence and a Jonesboro woman was sent to the hospital after one such incident this week.

At 9:26 p.m. on Thursday, July 20, JPD was dispatched to NEA Baptist hospital to meet with the 53-year-old woman who had gone to feed a stray cat. That’s when the cat bit her on the right hand.It happened around the 300-block of Drake Street in Jonesboro, the incident report said.

The woman was treated in the Emergency Room of the hospital.

Cat bites to the hand can cause serious infections, a Mayo Clinic study finds. Cats have sharp teeth which cause deep puncture wounds that are prone to infection.
