Woman Saves House Cat Some listeners were dismayed by our recent coverage of a plan to hunt down cats in Wisconsin. In the interest of balance, here's the story of a woman who saved a cat. A bobcat in Maine attacked Mildred Luce's house cat. The bobcat had the pet in its mouth when Luce, 90, pulled its tail. The house cat broke loose and fled into the house, followed by the big cat, which Mildred Luce then locked in a bathroom until a game warden arrived.
