Feline Fury: Family calls 911, says ‘fat, angry’ cat has them trapped in bedroom
PORTLAND, Or. – There are “grumpy cats” and “LOL cats” and now “angry, fat” cats.
An Oregon family called 911 after they said a 22-pound house cat attacked their 7-month-old baby and trapped them in their bedroom Sunday night.
KATU reported the baby was OK.
The family, including the dog, was forced to take cover as they said the Himalayan cat continued in its feline fury.
Lee Palmer said he called for backup after he hit the cat when it attacked their baby boy.
“I kicked the cat in the rear and it has went off over the edge and we aren’t safe around the cat,” he said. “The cat, we don’t know what to do about the cat. He’s trying to attack us. When I leave the bedroom to let the police in, I’m gonna have to fight this cat.”
Officers said the cat ran to the kitchen when they arrived and jumped onto the refrigerator.
KATU reported police used a snare to capture the bad kitty and secured it in its crate.
Officer Timothy Bocciolatt, one of two officers who responded to the call, said, ” The cat did not want to get back in the cage, that was for sure.”
The family and authorities have not confirmed what fate the cat will meet.
