Cat traps family in bedroom, family calls 911
CBS News

Police actually responded to the home after the cat went cray

This story is ridiculous, funny, and stupid all at the same time. Apparently, a family in Portland, Oregon had to call 911 after their 22-pound house cat cornered them in their bedroom and wouldn’t allow them out.

The family called 911 about 8pm on Sunday night and said that the cat had them cornered after it scratched their baby reports CBS News. The cat, apparently named Lux, was upset with the family clearly and the woman admits that the baby's father hit the car after it scratched the baby.

The family told 911 operators that the baby didn’t need medical attention. The mother of the scratched baby said, "Every time we opened our back bedroom door, the cat would hiss."

When officers arrived at the home, the car hid on top of the refrigerator. The unruly feline was eventually. I can only imagine the embarrassment this family will now endure after calling 911 on a cat. The cat certainly doesn't look vicious in the video; it looks scared more than anything.

The police issued a release about the incident that said in part, "The cat remained behind bars in the custody of the family and officers cleared the scene and continued to fight crime elsewhere in the city."

The family is considering whether to find a new home for the cat. I'd say if you were too afraid of the cat to come out of the house, it needs a new home.
