Name: Mr. Evil
Location: The Woods of the Evil Dead
What makes Mr. Evil so mean?
Be careful what you wish for. I wanted a cat that was tough enough to survive the coyotes in the woods behind our house, so it made perfect sense to take one home that was already living in the woods. The result is Mr. Evil. The person who’d been feeding him gave me a sob story about how he was a really nice cat but his current owner was cruel. She had even seen the man shoot the cat with a pellet gun!
I am here to say, I can guarantee you he was acting in self-defense.
I let Mr. Evil out within hours of getting him home–he scared me. My neighbor asked what his name was and when I told her Mr. Evil, she immediately answered back, “That’s a good name for him.” Another neighbor said, “You know, if you got rid of Mr. Evil, it wouldn’t bother me at all”.
Hunting is the E-cat’s one true love, but he also enjoys causing pain. That is what likely lead to the pellet gun thing. When he isn’t eating squirrels (literally) he likes to torture shrews or birds and chew the tails off of lizards.
