It’s not often that you hear of a journalist getting into a cat fight (with actual cats). But The Hill‘s Senate scribe J. Taylor Rushing did just that over the weekend in a matter of two Facebook updates.
He writes, “Got into a fight this morning with his cats, and somehow lost. Not sure how that happened. It was definitely a team job. One of them held me down while the other punched me in the face. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”
Don’t call the Humane Society or Child Protective Services just yet. The cat didn’t really punch him in the face, but no doubt coworkers will be able to assess the damage. Turns out Rushing was amusing a few friends with animal antics. “I’ve been torturing them with a laser pointer, making them chase around the red dot,” he explained. “They finally figured it out and jumped me.”
