If you have to fight – fight like a 'Cornered Cat!'

Kathy Jackson begins her website, The Cornered Cat, with the following words:

“No one in her right mind fights for the sake of fighting. But if you have to defend yourself, it’s good to have sharp claws.”

Though not a blog site by definition, The Cornered Cat has content that appeals to us here at The WON.  The Cornered Cat is a site about women and guns, not about cats.  But in a way, it’s about the cornered cat in all of us. It’s about the determination to get away from an attacker if you need to. It’s about deciding to say, “Not me. Not mine. Not today.” And it’s about the tools to make that decision stick.

Kathy Jackson is a freelance writer who shares her interest in self-defense, self-protection and the outdoors with the readers of The Cornered Cat.   She is also the co-author with Concealed Carry magazine columnist (and Armed American Radio host), Mark Walters, called Lessons from Armed America. An assistant firearms instructor at the Firearms Academy of Seattle, this woman takes her firearms and the responsibilities that come along with using them safely very seriously.

We are pleased at The WON to feature The Cornered Cat as a Bloglight this week and we urge you to visit and explore the many resources Kathy has provided for shooters, from practical issues to legal concerns and even ethical questions.
