22 Pound House Cat Holds Family Hostage
From gma.yahoo.com –
A Portland family was forced to hide in a bedroom and call 911 after they say they were terrorized by their 22-pound pet cat.
“I have a kind of particular emergency here Lee Palmer can be heard telling a 911 dispatcher during the 911 call.
“I kicked the cat in the rear and it has went off over the edge and we aren’t safe around the cat,” Palmer said. “We’re trapped in our bedroom and he won’t let us out of our door.”
The cat, a black-and-white Himalayan named Lux, reportedly attacked a 7-month-old baby in the home.
The cat turned violent after their son, Jesse, pulled its tail on Sunday.
Palmer told the 911 dispatcher that the cat, who could be heard hissing in the background, was charging the bedroom door.
Police were able to capture the cat with a snare and then put him in a crate.
