A Catford man was driven potty after being attacked by a fox which burst in on him as he sat on the toilet.
The startled 49-year-old leapt up from the bog with his trousers around his ankles before pursuing the creature around the living room in a farcical fox chase.
Mr Schofield, who lives in Ringstead Road, said: “I didn’t even have time to wipe myself.
“I just had to chase after it. It was so quick.
“The fox had pushed its nose through the door. I jumped off the toilet.
“In the meantime it had run into the front room and got the cat.
“It had the cat round the neck. She was in shock, bleeding from her face.
“It locked itself onto my arm but still had the cat as well.
“It was unbelievable – the strength in the little thing.
“There was blood everywhere.
“It was like a struggle for my life.”
