A CAT paused a vicious fight to groom itself for some reason, according to eyewitnesses.
Tabby Oscar briefly refrained from batting maniacally at rival feline Pumpkin to take the cat version of a shower.
Owner Emma Bradford said: “One minute he was kicking the shit out of the other cat, the next it was like he’d entirely forgotten where he was.
“I thought possibly Oscar was psyching him out, like ‘Yeah, gonna come at me, muthafucka?’ but then Pumpkin clocked him in the side of the head while he was licking his groin.
“Then he casually licked himself for about a minute while Pumpkin stood and watched. It’s like he really lost focus. Maybe he needs a boxing coach.”
Bradford then called time on the fight by shaking a bag of dry cat food to make Oscar come indoors and saying ‘Pshh!’ loudly at Pumpkin, causing him to flee in terror.
Oscar said: “I’m up for a rematch. I just need to get in shape by lying by the radiator indefinitely.”
