An owner calls the fuzz on an angry furry friend.
FOX News Radio's Chris Foster has the details:
Lee Palmer tells the 911 operator in Portland, Oregon, the family's 22-pound cat scratched their seven month-old son.
Palmer on 911 call: "I kicked the butt-- the cat in the rear and it just went off."
They barricaded themselves in the bedroom -- with the dog.
Palmer on 911 call: "He's trying to attack us. He's very, very, very, very hostile."
The cat's a four year-old himalayan named Lux.
Palmer on 911 call: "He's charging us. He's at our door. Our bedroom door."
911 Dispatcher: "One moment ok?"
Palmer on 911 call: (cat noise) "Do you hear him?"
911 Dispatcher: "Yeah I hear him, hold on, keep your door shut, ok?"
Police came and used a snare to take the cat into custody. The owner says the family's debating what to do with him.
