Out of control fat cat traps family in bedroom

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOKH/WKRC) -- An out-of-control cat trapped its owners in a back bedroom as they frantically called 911 for help.

"The cat...I don't know what to do about the cat. He's gone...he's trying to attack us. He's very, very, very, very hostile," one of the owners can be heard saying to the 911 operator.

The situation unfolded in a Portland, OR apartment on Sunday night when the 22-pound Himalayan feline, named "Lux," scratched Teresa's 7-month-old child, drawing blood.

Teresa's boyfriend, Lee Palmer, kicked the cat away from the baby, which is when Teresa says the cat went wild. The family tried animal control first but when they didn't answer Teresa's boyfriend called police.

"He's at our door, bedroom door," the boyfriend can be heard saying to the 911 operator. In the background, the cat can be heard screeching on the other side of the door. Officer Timothy Bocciolatt grabbed central precinct's only animal control snare and managed to corral the cat.

Palmer says the 4-year-old Himalayan cat is headed to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat.

Palmer says the animal attacked after the 7-month-old child pulled its tail.
