The Oregonian has this headline: Aggravated cat is subdued by Portland police after terrorizing family. It is the story of a 22-pound cat (!) that first scratched a baby (totally understandable) and then went crazy when the guy tried to kick it (what a jerk!). The family was forced to hide out in a bedroom to save itself from the cat.

Owner Lee Palmer told dispatchers the 4-year-old male cat "has a history of violence," and had scratched his 7-month old son in the forehead.

Palmer said he tried to get the cat off his son: "I kicked the cat in the rear, and it has gone over the edge. He's trying to attack us — he's very hostile. He's at our door; he's charging us."

The dispatcher asked her supervisor if it was OK to send police on such an unusual call. It was. Meanwhile, on the 911 tape, the cat can be heard screaming in the background.

Poor kitty.

Go here to hear the amazing 911 call!
