Trapped the family in the bedroom? What, did he padlock the door? Even at 22lb, a housecat should be no match for an adult human.
How can a 22lb cat trap a grown woman...much less a man?
Darn that Catwoman and her henchcats!
I’d use it’s stiff corpse for something appropriate.
I’d take its paws and as rigormortis sets in i’d set them so I could use the punk as a toilet bowl brush.
They didn’t shoot the cat! They only captured it!
Probably because they get no attaboys for shooting cats. Only dogs.
“The dispatcher, having never encountered such a situation before, asks her supervisor whether or not police can be sent for an angry cat.

If Satan got into that cat, I could very well see how. 22 lb. of angry claws and teeth.
Maybe the cat threatened to play Obama’s 25 greatest speeches.
Tell me you wouldn’t want to do anything to avoid THAT.
(The book is real)
Maybe Oregon has recently legalized Catnip and the young cats owner wouldn’t give him any money to buy some....
Freeper This Just In posted this vid on another thread.....
Ok so that put QUITE a picture in my head. You’ve thought this through, right? ;}
Sounds like what my neighbor said as I described a cat that had “violated” the pet-human contract. She was rumored to have a “screw loose” but I wondered about “kitty schizophrenia.” Lying purring on a human lap, she would then claw and bite for a few seconds - be shoved off the lap and land on the ground - look around a little and then try to get back on the human lap for more petting, then act insulted when not allowed. I crossed a room and this cat attacked my legs, slapping left-right with paws - her claws getting caught in the fabric of my pants. It wasn’t play - you CAN tell when they are playing.
Anyway, the owner asked me to write a Kitty Adoption advertisement - now THAT was tough trying to write an enticing advertisement that includes the information that the cat will attack unprovoked. To my utter amazement - the vet technician at the beast’s veterinarian’s office gave that thing a home the DAY it was brought to the office to be euthanized (for violent tendencies) - even after I clarified previously alluded to ...ahem...”her street manners!”
My friend, listening to this account said something like your toilet-bowl-brush comment. His was more veiled - should a cat violate certain assumed contractual agreements...said cat would meet with overwhelming negative consequences which would, without a doubt, prohibit those unwanted behaviors from EVER occurring again.....I like yours better - bolder and visual, IMHO.
Take a blanket and throw over cat then hold a stomping party. Gee how hard is that?
Shoot the Kitteh.
When I was a child we had a phrase “Meaner Than Cat ****”
And that would be refereeing to us.
No pic of that hissing hellcat?
The cat doesn't know any better, probably just wanted to play. The parents should have enough sense to not let animals near a baby.
And it's beyond bizarre that two adults couldn't deal with a cat -- when the police arrived the cat just jumped up on the refrigerator and they were able to capture it without incident -- if the cat had bit them or scratched them, we would have heard about it.
Any pet that attacked my child would be killed.
A “pit cat.” Who’d have thunk it?
here kitty kitty... where are you?
“How can a 22lb cat trap a grown woman...much less a man?”
This is Portland we’re talking about. Neither the men nor the women perfectly fit the definition of “grown”. Nor do they fit the definition of men and women.
“Shoot the Kitteh.
It’s Portland. Your solution is invalid for obvious reasons.
Shouldhave just let’m HAVE the beer...saved a 5k response.
Unless this is an unusual cat breed, it seriously needs to be put on a diet. Overfeeding, another form of animal cruelty.
I would, at a minimum, put a contract on that cougar.
I think your message was meant to be directed at someone else, as I never posted what you were quoting. Just a friendly FYI. Too many sidhe on the keyboard?
There was probably not a female officer(ette) at the scene. Females stomp cats to death.
Cute lil feller.
Makes me think of my lil guy.
He’s just the best baby. So loving, so full of joy, loves to play and happy to learn new disciplines.
He’s a Cocker Spaniel and the best.
Sadly Cockers are known for hip displacia and thin bones.
He’s only 3 and a couple days ago, somehow, he cracked his pelvis.
He wants to be held, lay right next to me, kisses me constantly (he’s normally not a kisser) and paws at me, as if to beg “Please! Help me! I hurt and I know you can make it go away!”.
Sadly, I can’t fix it.
We’ve crated him, to prevent further injury.
Makes me sick.
I never, ever yell at him. Not even when he somehow got a hold of my wallet. $600 bucks torn up, had to replace all my credit cards, my dues card for Masonry, my county gun safety card and he ate two 1$100 bills.
A friend said he’d be pissed. I picked him up saying “Look at this punk. Is this the face anyone could be mad at?”
You’d have to see this pig.
Just the best. He didn’t mean anything by it. He just wanted to chew on something that smelled like me and it made him feel wo good.
I chalked it up to him being a baby.
I had a talk with him, as he looked sheepish, like he couldn’t help it.
Big baby. He didn’t mean it. I love him.
Hopefully, he will heal but, I fear our days of hide & seek and fetch are over.
We’ll find other ways to entertain each other. If I have to I’ll make a little cart, so he can drag his broken ass around.
The good news is he lives in a day and age where God has made the arts and sciences available to man and he can be operated on, if it comes down to it, and be healed.
I pray to God he will heal and continue being....well....himself.
Gonna have create a new system to groom and bath him.
I find buckshot works best.
Ya, we had cats that did that, and very promptly met a sudden end.
Just heard the call on FOX this morning. These people are dopes. They should have never had a cat with a toddler. Seems like the little kid probably whacked the cat, the cat scratched him, then the Dad said he smacked the cat, which was stupid.
Then they hid in the bedroom like the wimps they are.
I prefer to pretend the cat is a baseball bat. The tail is the handle, the head is the sweet spot, and any convenient wall is the baseball.
Here’s the pitch! He swings! It’s out of here!!
Jackson Galaxy from “My Cat From Hell”. Very interesting show and he knows his cats.
That ain’t no housecat!
Yikes.....tell me that isn’t the cat.
what about a CATapult? You put said cat into it, and launch, then everyone draws with .45 colt and tries to hit it?
Most cats I don’t mind, but after my experiences I won’t own any anymore. I’ll just stick with dogs, and by dogs I mean real ones, not little rats :P
I’ve got a S&W 617 10 shot 22 LR revolver for things like that cat. Put some Aguila primer-only rounds in it and it’s quiet as a silenced 22, still deadly at close range.
Not true. A mean cat with claws will run at you, jump into your face, and claw and bite the hell out of you. Four feet with razor claws flying and sharp teeth is nothing to mess with. I would go for my gun rather than kick an ornery mad cat.
That's all I have to say about that.
In Soviet Oregon, cat cage you!
That might be true if you actually cared what happened to the cat. However, if a heavyweight like that had already taken a chunk of out my infant, as this one had done, he wouldn’t reach my face before running into a strong backhand. I wouldn’t be taking a solely defensive posture, and would be actively trying to defeat the animal.
