Lux, the cat accused of attacking a baby and terrorizing its family.
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
A fat cat with a bad attitude attacked a baby and forced a Portland family to hide in a bedroom before calling 911.
Police were called out to deal with the crazed kitty at The Yards at Union Station complex on Northwest Naito Parkway just before 8 p.m. Sunday.
The man who called 911 told the dispatcher the cat "went over the edge," and was charging at them every time they opened the door. Lee Palmer, his girlfriend, Teresa Barker and their son, Jesse, were taking cover in the bedroom.
"He's trying to attack us," he said. "He's very, very, very, very hostile."
911 operators confirmed the baby did not need medical attention before sending officers to the scene.
"The 911 operator stayed on the phone with the caller to ensure the family, including the dog, remained safe in the bedroom as the cat screeched in the background," a Portland Police Bureau press release states.
The responding officers snagged a dog snare to use in case it was needed to take the alleged cat criminal into custody.
