    Postmen put a boycott on house where 'Danger Puss' waits for


    Postmen put a boycott on house where 'Danger Puss' waits for them.

    A cat in a quiet Hampshire town has already injured seven postmen and women. 'Purrdey', the 11-year-old black cat spits, jumps at the throat and digs its claws into anyone trying to deliver to the address in New Milton.

    'This cat is dangerous,' said Alan Booth, spokesman for the Royal Mail. 'It attacks anyone trying to approach the house. It leaps in the air as if it were a tiger.'

    'It's all rather embarrassing,' said Mr Rice, the owner of the cat, who has taken chocolates to the local post office to try to make amends.

    'There's a warning up there saying 'Beware of Alan Rice's cat,' ' he added.

    Cats have occasionally stopped the mail getting through before: last year an animal named 'Boo Boo' prevented deliveries in Cardiff.

    Other boycotts have been caused by geese, seagulls, and, in Gloucestershire, a particularly plucky pheasant.
