Quote:'Violent' Himalayan cat attacks baby, traps Oregon family in bedroom
A 10-kilogram Himalayan cat has attacked a baby boy and trapped a family in the bedroom of their apartment in the US state of Oregon.
The cat's owner, Lee Palmer, says the family was forced to call 911 after the feline scratched their seven-month-old baby, prompting Mr Palmer to kick the animal up the backside.
He says this caused the cat to go "over the edge".
A 911 audio recording captured Mr Palmer telling an emergency services dispatcher in Portland his family were trapped by the hostile cat.
"We're trapped in the bedroom - he won't let us out of our door," Mr Palmer said.
Listen to the 911 call from the trapped family
"I kicked the cat in the rear and it has gone over the edge ... He's very, very, very, very hostile."
In the 911 call obtained by The Oregonian newspaper, Mr Palmer explained that the four-year-old male cat, named Lux, had previous incidents of aggression.
In Sunday's incident, Mr Palmer tried unsuccessfully to call animal control before resorting to dialling 911.
"He's kind of a violent cat already ... he's charging us - he's at our bedroom door," Mr Palmer said.
The cat can be heard howling in the background. He asks the dispatcher: "Do you hear him?"
"Yeah, yeah, I hear him," the female emergency call operator said.
Police later subdued the animal with a dog snare.
"We are debating what to do," Mr Palmer said afterwards.
"We definitely want to keep the cat away from the baby, and keep an eye on his behaviour."
they said they were going to keep the cat,,,
Play this one all the way through and listen to the ending (*-*)
and yes Softy , they really are keepeing the cat
these people are f_cking NUTZ here man
they call cops for a splinter in their pinky
biggest bunch of cry babies ever man
as you Enter the City limits , that reads:::::::::::::::
~~~~~~ In Portland ~~~~~~
" More People have died stupidly ,,, then have been born wisely "
and just as many people here ,,,
have been born stupidly ,, and need to wisely DIE ! "
I'm not sure what age the baby was or what happened between the cat and the baby, but just by the owner kicking the cat I have a pretty good idea they don't have a clue as to cat behaviour.
that's how they deal with life , they ignore their responsibility to THINK
and leave it to a Therapist to work it out for them .
They should change their Moto from
" Keep Portland Weird "
" We maintain our Dysfunction with pride "
