It turns out that Karma isn't a female dog after all - it's a cat from Detroit.
Video released Monday by Fox 2 News Detroit shows a cat ferociously attacking a woman who was kicking snow at the frisky feline.
Fox 2 reported that the sweatsuit-clad woman was "trying to protect her dog from a stray cat" before it leapt onto her head.
As the woman retreats back into a nearby building, clutching the top of her head, the cat is seen strutting around in a boasting fashion. Detroit cats don't play.
