Family calls 911 to report their cat ‘went over the edge,’ is attacking them
PORTLAND (KPTV) — A Portland family with an infant shut themselves off in a bedroom and called 911 to report that their pet cat had gone crazy and was attacking them.
Police were called to The Yards at Union Station complex on Northwest Naito Parkway just before 8 p.m. Sunday.
The man who called 911 told the dispatcher the cat “went over the edge” and was charging at them every time they opened the door.
“He’s trying to attack us,” he said. “He’s very, very, very, very hostile.”
911 operators confirmed the family’s baby did not need medical attention before sending officers to the scene.
“The 911 operator stayed on the phone with the caller to ensure the family, including the dog, remained safe in the bedroom as the cat screeched in the background,” a Portland Police Bureau press release said.
The responding officers snagged a dog snare to use in case it was needed to take the alleged cat criminal into custody.
The cat, named Lux, weighs 22 pounds.
When officers opened the door to the apartment, a black and white Himalayan darted into the kitchen, “attempting to flee custody,” police said.
The dog snare came in handy, as it was used to put the cat in a crate. Officers then told the family it was safe to come out of the bedroom.
Here is the vicious beastie after his reign of terror was interrupted by the local police, who I might add, DID NOT SHOOT THE CAT!
I'm sorry but I can't help but laugh.
22 pounds or not, if that cat went after me like that I sure as shit wouldn't be hiding in the bedroom calling 911!
I would be looking for a garbage bag to put the little fuckers body in and a sponge to clean up the mess.
