In November, a Michigan resident was trying to protect her mother's dog from a hostile stray cat.  She attempted to shoo him away by kicking snow...BIG mistake!  The cat did not take kindly to the attempt and made it clear by leaping in the air and attacking the woman's head.

The attack landed her in the hospital as she ended up with an infection that turned into cellulitis, causing her face to swell.  See below.
