Portland (KGW) — A 22-pound house cat scared a Portland family into calling 911 for help Sunday.
The family called 911 at 7:55 p.m., telling dispatchers the huge cat named Lux attacked their baby and then forced them to flee into a bedroom, where they remained holed up inside.
The baby was not injured but the 911 operator could hear Lux screeching in the background. (Hear excerpt from 911 call in audio clip at bottom of this page.)
"I kicked him in the rear and he just went off, over the edge," the caller told the 911 dispatcher. "We are not safe around the cat. We're trapped in the bedroom. He won't let us out of the door."
When officers arrived, the man, who sounded slightly shaken, told the dispatcher he was reluctant to let the police in because, "If I leave the bedroom, I'm going to have to fight the cat. Tell them to be careful, the police."
