A cat behind a crimewave that has terrorised the village where he lives for years has been slapped with the feline equivalent of an Asbo.
Owner Caroline Hughes plans to dose him up on flower essences to stay calm and keep him indoors.
His bad boy antics include being reported to police for fighting dogs and stealing neighbours food.
And Oscar a five-year-old Turkish van cat injured a man, Tom Ridgeway, so badly the 77-year-old was in hospital for a week.
Telecoms worker Ms Hughes is even considering moving home as her pet has such a fearsome reputation. Hes been dubbed the Lion Cat of Wingrave in the Buckinghamshire village where they live.
Ms Hughes, 36, said: Ive never understood why hes like he is. Hes friendly and adorable at home.
Oscar's apparent cuteness was sufficient to earn him a starring role in an Ikea TV advert.

This one certainly does.
Does you cat pay his way?
He would have used up his 9 lives in my neighborhood.
One day he just wouldn’t have come home.

Then keep him home, where he's safe from cars, cricket bats, slingshots, pellet guns, and "accidentally" spilled antifreeze.
You are not a good neighbor, if you let your kid act like a juvenile delinquent. And moving doesn't solve anything; it just changes the names on the victims list.
As to 'why he is like he is', try looking under 'lack of discipline'...YOURS.
What a pussy!
Perhaps it is for the best that mine refuses to leave the house.
With great power comes great responsibility.
