bizarre near miss !!!!

I had a bizarre incident whilst out on my bike .
I was out minding my own business going about 20 mph , when a Cat ran out in front of me and went under my front wheel ,but it managed to dart out before my back wheel hit it .
I had a major out of control moment , but I managed to hang on and stay upright .

After a few moments I calmed down and my heart rate went back to normal .
Then I looked down and there was about a 6 inch peice of fur in between my chainset .
This put a smile on my face

The question is , has anyone else had anything similar happen ?

    I hit a fox coming home from work two years ago. No fur, but it did make a cracking noise when the rear wheel went over.

    Previuosly posted about a pigeon flying into me, lots of feathers & I got a good scratch to show for it, an owl swooped in front a few weeks ago & was enough to scare the poop out of me (Well almost) & a semi suicidal squirrel almost got under my front wheel, but backed out as I loomed over him last week. I would point out that this is in Birmingham, not some rural idyll.

    you must have some burberry in your chainset then, and your bike is probably pregnant.

    Fallen pregnant seems to be the appropriate term (too much Jeremy Kyle...I thought it was a natural history show).
