“A cat named Trouble allegedly attacked a 7-year-old girl while she was visiting her grandfather in Joliet, according to a complaint filed Thursday in Will County court.
The owners of the allegedly troublesome cat are being sued over the incident that apparently left the girl with claw marks across the forehead. The injury required surgery, the lawsuit said.
Anna Tezak, the mother of the girl, is suing Rena and Kelly Blankenship, who were identified in the complaint as the owners of Trouble. Tezak is seeking at least $50,000 in damages.
“I think we have enough evidence that this was their cat they habitually let run around their neighborhood,” said Jordan Kielian, Tezak`s attorney.”

We know the cat`s name (Trouble), but what`s the girl`s name (Brat)? Felines don`t attack unless provoked, what was the little girl from hell doing? Pulling its tail? Throwing rocks at it?
The only ones more evil than the mischievous girl are her greedy parents who are suing for $50,000 for a few scratches that their daughter sustained on her forehead.
The judge should award them $10.00 so they can buy a jumbo container of Neosporin, and whip them with a cat o` nine tails for filing a frivolous lawsuit.
How the hell do we know anyway that Trouble, or for that matter any cat, scratched the troublesome girl? Her own parents may have scratched her, this could all be a scam.
