PORTLAND, Ore. Portland police had to be called in to subdue a 22-pound house cat that trapped its owners inside their bedroom after attacking their baby.
The baby was not injured in the Sunday incident.

Pit cat? Cat bull?
Cat dead is more appropriate
I refuse to be terrorized by a house cat
22 lb cat meet 34 ounce baseball bat.
Guess these folks never played kickball as kids.
That kitty needs a ZOT! ;)
Were the owners shoeless?
No. I believe they were clueless.
Field goal time.
Owners? Some people never learn ping.
I believe the owners have a history of making bonehead decisions.
Ordinarily a baseball bat will do; sometimes, though there’s no choice but to unleash the holy hand grenade of Antioch.
No wonder the cat threw a hissy fit. They served him Bud Light when he wanted Fat Cat.
The moment a cat tries to attack my children is the moment the cat realizes it made a big mistake.
Now that is just wrong.
Best laugh I have had in a week..maybe a month...
What will they think of next?
Time for a size 14 Red Wing.
Feral cats can be very dangerous, as they are or have become nonsocialized. They’re used to fighting for the things they need. Cute and cudly is not often their default mode. In other words, keep s full can of RAID handy, then blast that little beast directly in the choppers as with Mace. Of course, keep the spray away from little junior..
My cat is fat,
So now, I'll dine
And gobble up

I have a better solution.
Don’t adopt feral cats. BTW, have you seen this?
In “The Prehistory of the Far Side,” Gary Larson reprinted a dozen of the comments he received from readers who objected to that cartoon.
That is one bad assed cat.
Looks like he was getting ready to kill the dog next.
Hope the dog is ok.
We’ve adopted cats from the shelter, and we’ve taken in unwanted cats. Our family has never had problems. As a matter of fact, we’ve never had any problems with our dogs either.
Yeah, the dog wanted in too. That cat was entering the gate when the video ended.
I was born and raised around dogs and cats. I could see that outcome coming from a mile away.
Some cat lovers are pretty strange.
Cat on the Rag.
Yes that is one bad ass cat that was bullied by that woman. I hope she was not injured badly but a few scratches seem about right.
Years ago when I lived in Venezuela I had an Ocelot for a few days. The maid quit, my wife hid in the bedroom and he and I had a fight over the steak I had just brought home from the store. He and I actually got along but between the maid and my wife (a man “got to know his limitations” and his wife’s and maids forbearance and understanding) I sadly returned the cat to its former owners.
In retrospect I should have kept the cat and increased the salary of the maid and put the wife on a plane to Miami.
In "Prehistory of the Far Side", Larson said that he thought that what bothered people about the cartoon was that there was no escape for the cat. In a typical animated cartoon, if a cat is run over or blown up, a few seconds later he has recovered and is back in action:
There's never a suggestion that the cat's suffering is anything but transitory. In a single panel cartoon, however, no resolution is possible. The dogs play 'tethercat' forever.
...I suppose some people may have appreciated a disclaimer at the bottom of the cartoon saying, 'Note: A few minutes later, the cat escaped, returned with a bazooka and blew the dogs away.' (Of course, now I'm on the dogs' case.)
Larson was great.
I’ve been a fan of Larson for some time. I once presented a Far Side calender to a bandmember for Christmas. She did not appreciate the humor. :^)
It’s a cartoon, for Pete’s sake. Cat lovers need to find a hobby.
Ocelots are beautiful felines, but I’ve never been one to subscribe to the adoption of wild animals. They may appear to behave as domesticated animals, but they are wild. Think Siegfried & Roy.
I suppose I am something of a cat lover, but that cartoon was intended to show nothing more than a dog's ridiculous anti-cat fantasy.
Is it wrong to laugh my arse off at that? lol
The mark of what it is to be “American” is ingenuity. This will definitely leave a mark......
There are reasons for those “This House is Protected by an Attack Cat.”
I owned an “attack cat,” it took 6 years to calm her down but I would never fully trust her around ....children.
Cat’s can have several kinds of seemingly unprovoked types of aggression. One is called transfer aggression (what my cat had) and the other is petting aggression (why I have a bite wound on my hand from a client’s cat). Cat bites and scratches are very bad deals and I sincerely hope they take the baby to the hospital or doctor.
This will provoke the removal of the cat from the home by the health department or child services.
The whole story sounds bogus enough to be reported on NBC.
One well placed .22 would solve that in short order if that cat were in my house. With a history like it did have, why was it still there?
You own your dogs, your cats tolerate you.
My pal used the 22cal remedy on a raccoon that entered thru
the pet door seeking dog food. He didn’t finish the job w/the
first shot so there was a bloody mess all over the kitchen
and living room. Twelve years ago and I’m still chuckling when
he gives me shit about my shooting.
No cat or dog should be left alone with a child under 18 months. By 18 months the child can fend off most cats. Extend the ban on dogs another year. Our ACD wanted to eat our granddaughter until she go big enough to throw a frisbie. Then and now he adores her and the only time I saw him get violent was at a man he thought was a threat to her. (actually he was right and chased him out of the house).
Our cat is a sneaky biter. She will be just playing; then she gets this naughty look in her eyes and we later find long red scratches on our arms. - We first named her “Lambchop”, then the neighbor kids started laughing and guffawing at us calling “Lambchop” (and she would never answer to that name anyway - we’d already tried “Zippy” - and the only name she would agree to answer to is “Brutus”). So, “Brutus” it is; I don’t like it, but that’s it. At least, the neighbor kids don’t make fun of it.
She isn’t sneaky, you see that ‘funny look’ on her face. She is over stimulated, same type of aggression as petting aggression. The trick is to not get to that point and stop way before ‘that look.’
