Cat With History Of Violence Traps Family In Bedroom

According to Reuters,

A rampaging, 22-pound Oregon house cat with a “history of violence” attacked a baby and trapped a family and their dog in a bedroom at their Portland home before being captured by police, authorities said on Monday.

The Sunday evening incident began when the cat, a black-and-white Himalayan, scratched a 7-month-old baby in the face, according to Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sergeant Pete Simpson.

The baby’s father kicked the cat in the backside, which sent it into a rage, and the parents and baby, along with their dog, retreated into a bedroom as the father called police, Simpson said.

Meanwhile, the cat blocked the bedroom doorway and could be heard on the 911 call screeching loudly, Simpson said.

Oddly, after police captured the foul-tempered beast and put it in a cage, they then handed it back to the family.

Our takeaway from this: Cats are evil made manifest. That family is lucky the cat didn’t have a gun.

  2. But if the cat DID have a gun, any resulting violence would have been solely the gun’s fault, of course…
