It’s become a fact of life that cats are jerks. One cat, however, is such a little B that the mail carrier might refuse to deliver to her house.
Bella, a cat in Bristol, United Kingdom, growls, leaps at and grabs mail from the postal carrier whenever he visits her house, and the Royal Mail sees her as a “hazard,” according to The Telegraph. They’ve asked Bella’s owners, Matthew Sampson and Laura Lowe, to “keep their pet under control.”
Sampson and Lowe say they’ve never seen the 4-year-old black cat attack the mail carrier. But maybe the damages are to the soul.
The Royal Mail said Bella is putting the postman “at risk of injury,” according to the news story, and that “after a health and safety assessment, has said the cat must be restrained and changes made at the home in Patchway, Bristol.”
Welp, that sounds serious. The couple is responding by putting up an external delivery box, and Sampson has apologized. Now it’s Bella’s turn.
