A mail man from Royal Mail's Weston (UK) was complaining that he was attacked by a cat, named Magic, several times in a row when he was delivering mail for Magic's family. He claimed that the three year old moggy ran right out of the cat-flap, trying to maul and attack him. The post office then sent a letter to the owner of the cat, warning to consider suspending the delivery service for the household that owns the cat.
The owner of the cat named Sam, was completely shocked by the accusation. She knew her cat would not hurt a fly. When the head of the delivery unit came for a visit, she decided to perform an experiment in front of them to prove her cat's innocence. They had a man pretend to post mail in the letterbox, recreating the exact same scenario that the "attacked" mailman described, but Magic did not budge at all, instead he was calmly minding his own business.
Sam knows Magic as a calm and laid-back cat and has never seen or heard of him acting aggressive towards anyone.
The post office suggested having Magic locked up in the house by blocking the exit in order to ensure the safety for their staff.
I think the most ridiculous part of the story comes from the warning letter addressed by the post office:
It says: "I am writing to let you know that our post person, while delivering mail to your address, was menaced by your cat. This has happened for the last three days.
"I believe that your cat, as soon as it hears the letterbox, is straight out the cat-flap and attacks the post person.
"Animal attacks are a major cause of injury to Royal Mail staff.
"If any further incidents of this nature are allowed to take place, I shall have no alternative other than to consider suspending the delivery of mail to your home.
Com'on! What can a cute little kitty do to a big tall man?
