    I clicked on a video in the NYPost inadvertently, apparently Koala bears never fight or very rarely.

    This video was of a male viciously attacking a female for no reason, she was smaller and screaming out in pain. I was FURIOUS and could have kicked the $#@! out of the moron taking the video, he should have kicked the male or did something to get him off her.

    She seemed ok after but was in pain

    I hate these people who video and stand by and let people an animals get hurt, what they hell are we becoming

Her tail was all crooked from numerous breaks, so I named her 'Lightning'.

    She came to us pregnant, and in the middle of the night I felt something odd going on and turned on the light. Lightning was having her kittens on my chest. I convinced her to move to a towel-padded dresser drawer to finish delivering.
    Years ago my cat urinated on my chest in the middle of the night which woke me up. The urine contained blood.
    I took her to the vet and she said cats do that to attract attention when they are poorly.

    I think that you're right. I just didn't want to say it.

    Hmmm...thank you Beevee. My older crazy female cat sprayed the couch last night and i kicked her out of the house.
    She kept coming back in and i kept chasing her out.
    I went ahead and let her sleep the night and today in the house.

    You posts tells me i should set her up for a vet visit.

    Chloe and I both thank you.
    Maybe there is something wrong besides her being psycho.
    This is not the time for guessing.
    Thank you again.
    That behavior was very unusual.

    The OP animal looks like a Koala bear/rat hybrid-combo. Cute though.
