22 Pound Cat Confines Oregon Family In House

Lux angry cat

Some pets must have really bad days just like humans. Recently, an angry 22 pound house cat named Lux had a run in with the law. You won’t believe this bizarre story. 

Lux, a four-year-old, part Himalayan cat was having a really bad day and took his anger and aggression out on his family. According to the New York Daily News, earlier this week an Oregon family had to call police because their house cat went ballistic and scratched their 7 month old baby on the forehead.

The father, Lee Palmer, spanked the cat’s behind after he scratched the baby’s forehead, causing the cat to become more enraged. Apparently, Lux completely freaked out – leading the family and the family dog to lock themselves up in a bedroom in the house. Frightened by the crazy cat, they decided it would be best for the police to come handle the situation.

While on the phone with the police, the cat could be heard hissing and screeching in the background outside of the bedroom door. Palmer told the police, “He’s charging us. He’s at our bedroom door.” (I know what you are thinking, what the heck?!)

When police arrived, the cat jumped on top of the refrigerator but was eventually captured with a dog snare and taken into custody. “The cat remained behind bars in the custody of the family. Officers cleared the scene and continued to fight crime elsewhere in the city,” the Portland Police Bureau told Oregon Live.

In spite of the cat’s un-explainable behavior, the family decided that they don’t want to give up on Lux right away. “We’re not getting rid of him right now,” Palmer said. “He’s been part of our family for a long time.” Maybe a kitty shrink and the proper medications will help Lux deal with his anger management issues.
