An angry cat forced a family in Portland to lock themselves in the bedroom on Sunday night … and the man of the house had to call 911 for help.
Lee Palmer told the 911 dispatcher that the 20-pound Himalayan cat named Lux (pictured above) had attacked his seven-month old baby earlier in the evening, leaving him with scratches … and after he chased it away by kicking it in the rear, the canine returned with vengeance.
‘[The cat] trying to attack us — he’s very hostile. He’s at our door; he’s charging us,’ Palmer told the dispatcher. ‘When I leave this room to let the police in, I’m going to have to fight this cat.’
The aggressive cat forced the whole family – including the dog – to barricade themselves inside a bedroom. Then they tried calling animal services, but failed. So they dialled 911 … and the responding police trapped the cat in a snare.
‘We are debating what to do,’ Palmer told The Oregonian the next day. ‘We definitely want to keep [the cat] away from the baby and keep an eye on his behavior. I swear I have never seen anything like it.’
No one was hurt in the cat attack.
