Mail carrier clashes with cat

A Montréal-area mail carrier recently refused to deliver the daily dispatch to the home of “Caramel,” a 14-year-old, six-pound cat with only one eye.

Caramel’s owner, Alissa Sklar, later posted about the incident on Instagram.

“Our regular postal carrier rang our doorbell today to apologize for the guy who replaced him on Friday and refused to deliver this letter because he was afraid of Caramel,” writes Sklar on an Oct. 1 post, adding the cat “mostly hides in the bushes and charms our neighbours into feeding him.”

Sklar returned home that day to a note written on a Canada Post envelope reading, “Crazy cat with one eye was going to eat me.”
