Memphis-grizzlies-orlando

Felines are apparently no friend to Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph.In a recent ESPN interview, Randolph admitted that he is terrified of cats. Yes, you read that correctly: Cats. However, the big guy does seem to like dogs.Randolph appeared in a recent episode of Animal Planet's Pit Bulls and Parolees, in which he helps rescue a pit bull trapped in a drainpipe. "You can't be both a dog lover and a cat lover," Randolph says. "I've got a crazy phobia about cats. For some reason, I'm always thinking they're going to scratch me. If a cat walks up, I'm going, 'Oh no, this dude about to scratch me -- I know it!' Cats scare the hell out of me. I love animals, but I'm no cat lover. Guys usually aren't."Don't expect Randolph to be purchasing Meow Mix anytime soon; it won't be needed.Via USA TODAY.
