Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

As with so many things, The Onion has been proven prophetic again.

The famous headline, turned into the shirt design seen at the right, seems to have come true in the Montgomery County town of Cleveland, where a man had to be airlifted to a hospital with injuries given to him by a household cat.

The Cleveland Advocate reports the unnamed man and the equally unnamed cat engaged in hardcore combat:

At some point during the attack, the man and the cat reportedly were injured by a knife the man was holding.

It all reminds us of this:

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
