A Speedway man is recovering from a kitten bite to his thumb. Craig Wyatt, 24, called police on Thursday afternoon after a kitten in a woodpile nipped him on the right thumb.
Wyatt said the feline bit him when he tried to tie a string around its neck. When police arrived the kitten was tied to a tree.
Officer Chris Helmer described the cat in a report as “very calm and non-aggressive unless it was provoked.”
Helmer said Wyatt had a puncture through his right thumbnail a puncture on the bottom of his thumb. The Speedway Street Department took the cat away and Wyatt filed a bite report.
