Her name is February and she keeps guard just inside the door of an Upper East Side bodega.

She’s not on the lookout for mice though, she attacks dogs — something that’s made her infamous in her neighborhood.

“Leave the dogs alone, dogs are good people, you know what I mean?” one dog lover told PIX11.

This attack cat’s name is February and she keeps guard just inside the door of an Upper East Side bodega.

February’s owner, who declined to give her name, has had to put a sign on the door banning other pets, just in case.

“We got her from the ASPCA five years back, and she was a little small girl . . . (now) she’s a very feisty girl,” the owner said.  “Whenever she says any dog she attacks them, and everybody knows her on First Avenue.”

“People have come and fought with me, ‘take care of the cat’, but what can I do?”  While this feline doesn’t have too many dog owners she can count as friends, many of the humans in the neighborhood love her.

“She is a star on First Avenue,” said the bodega owner.
