Family Calls 911 When Angry Fat Cat Holds Them Hostage

The suspect has since been apprehended.

The 4-year-old cat, named Lux, scratched Teresa Barker's 7-month-old baby. After being spanked, the cat became enraged.

"He's trying to attack us," Lee Palmer said while the cat screeched his demands in the background. "He's very, very, very, very hostile."


Using a dog snare, officers were able to put the perturbed pussy (temporarily) behind bars. He will be suspended from catnip for two months.

"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 Portland Police Bureau actually said.

Update, March 11, 3:47 p.m.: Listen to the 911 call.
