Skip to comments.Man calls 911 after 'very, very, very, very hostile' cat traps family
Posted on 03/12/2014 2:11:48 AM PDT by grundle
Maybe it's time to try a dog. A small dog.
The 911 call in Portland, Ore., on Sunday began with a hint of embarassment, or at least of sense of self-awareness: "Yeah, hi, I have kind of a particular emergency here."
Particular indeed. The voice on the line belonged to Lee Palmer, who called to report that his 22-pound Himalayan cat had gone berserk, attacked his 7-month-old child, and now had Palmer's family trapped inside their bedroom after the father responded by kicking the cat in the butt.
The cat, in other words, had taken the family hostage.
"We aren't safe around the cat," Palmer told the emergency dispatcher in audio (embedded below) obtained by the Oregonian, which contained several statements like, "We're trapped in the bedroom, he won't let us out of our door," and "He's very, very, very, very hostile."

Pathetic at best. This is what a liberal male is, scared of a damn cat.
What a pussy.
I got jumped by three damn dogs taking out my trash one morning...I kicked the shit out them while yelling my ass off...as I went for the iron bar in the back of my truck...they scurried off pretty damn quick...
I already know I can kill a dog with my bare hands...I can kill a few with a blunt object...
Guess they figured it out too...
WTF has happened to the American male?
I would move out of town in shame if I were this dad...
I love cats. A cat that attacks a family member is going for the one-way trip to the vat. A cat that “traps” me and/or mine is getting a .22 injection.
Okay,let’s relax and have a double latte mocha cappuccino whey!
Vat worked for me.
He should have employed a SYG.
I have bears rummaging through my trash in the mornings sometimes. I finally figured out what keeps them away.
I take one of the smaller 1 qt size pump sprayers with the handle on the lid and I fill it with a 1/2 - 1/2 mixture of
Walmart’s Lousianna Pete’s HOT HOT sauce and water. Spray the lids to the trash bins and around the sides. Problem solved. Washes off in the rain pretty well.
It wouldn’t even have occurred to me to call 911 over a house cat going wild in my house...
Also into extortion, loansharking and prostitution.
Come and get me coppers!
This is atypical behavior for a cat. I can guess that these people do not know how to treat cats—whatever they are doing around that cat is the wrong thing.
They need to have that guy from Animal Planet show up and teach them how to get along with their cat. Or find the cat a home with someone who is familiar with cats.
I have had several cats over the years. I never have had an aggression issue. Right now, I have issues with them looking at me, loudly purring, and climbing on me because they want breakfast.
Vat? Are you sure you didn’t mean kettle? http://youtube.com/watch?v=NmXxrMC5Pv4
Good tip.....they were the white trash neighbors dogs...
Told him the next day if he didn’t keep his dogs locked up I would leave their heads on his porch...so they didn’t kill a little kid walking to school...
End of problem...
They finally moved...
Yup...the most violent things my cats have ever doen is catch a mouse...
The second to last one we got (and still have) was a stray my daughter had to have...she would bite and try and scratch you if you tried to pet her...
So I taught the cat a lesson....
I got her a puppy...
I guess getting pinned and head licked for a half hour without proper notice took the wind out of her sails....
Bwahaha! Love that movie! Let’s bring out the holy handgrenade!
“I have had several cats over the years. I never have had an aggression issue.”
I always have an average of 5-6 cats. I have never seen one show aggression towards humans, but times are a bit testy at the moment. My dog has five, 2 week old, puppies on the front porch. Needless to say, she is a bit testy about the cats and people that she does not know, such as a meter reader now, even though they normally get along fine together. Three of the cats cats are now holding out on safer ground, away from the house.
Give that feral infant fighting feline a chicken bullion bath and take him coyote hunting.....that will take the aggression right out of him.
No doubt the 7 month child provoked this cat. The infant was racist against Himalayan rappers who are trying to just get a job in a society run by stupid humans who don’t even know how to pump their own fuel at the gas stations in Oregon ......
Bottom line....kitty went nuts and got kicked in the nuts by owners who are nuts and have no nuts by calling dispatchers who deployed more nuts who specialize in handling nuts........ Whole thang is just nuts IMO.
Again, just my opinion....
Exactly. Some people are terrible with cats—teasing them, playing too rough, ‘disciplining’ them, etc.
I wonder if the cat's name is something like Tyrone or Javon. The sad thing is that the cat was just getting it's life together....
In that video the cat looks scared. Feel sorry for the little fella, prolly gonna put it asleep.
Caller: THERE’S A SPIDER IN BATHROOM! WE’RE TRAPPED!
911 Operator: Sir, are you some kind of faggot?
Vat kind of works, too.
[Holding the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch]
King Arthur: How does it... um... how does it work?
Sir Lancelot: I know not, my liege.
King Arthur: Consult the Book of Armaments!
Brother Maynard: Armaments, chapter two, verses nine through twenty-one.
Cleric: [reading] And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, “O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.” And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu...
Brother Maynard: Skip a bit, Brother...
Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.
Brother Maynard: Amen.
King Arthur: Right. One... two... five!
Sir Galahad: Three, sir!
King Arthur: Three!
Inhaling too much hairspray & ingesting too many bad plastic chemicals. We could throw in tofu too.
You never met my first ex.
“I wonder if the cat’s name is something like Tyrone or Javon. The sad thing is that the cat was just getting it’s life together....”
Are you asking if it was a black cat?
I got my Maine Coon, Abby, when her owner had to give up her and her brother due to health problems. Abby and I fought for 2 weeks, I sorta won, went to work with bite marks and starches on my forearms and hands. We finally declared a truce till my wife showed up in my life. Abby became a little jealous and would sneak up and bite her and run off. I got calls at work telling me I am going to throw your damned cat out the window, I would tell her you need to get higher, a second story fall won’t do it.
We all get along very well these days with the exception of vet visits when the old Abby emerges and teaches the vet a fecal is out of the question.
Back when I was a teen my GF had a black siamese that was mean as hell and would attack people who annoyed it. After my 3rd trip to the house my presence annoyed it and came lunging at me as I walked through the living room. Instinctively cat met foot and it landed against the wall behind the couch. Gave me a wide berth after that.
wow what a man
The preliminary to her getting into the pet taxi for a trip to the vet is the only time we and our cat have a "failure to communicate." That is a moment when we understand why felines of bobcat size and up are not to be trifled with.
That cute little kitty in your house would torture and eat you if it could!
While this is kinda funny and does seem to put this guy into the pajama boy cat-o-gory....
A friend of mine had his cat freak out. It tore into his hand, biting it and refusing to let go. As he attempted to pry it off the cat wrapped itself around his arm and began to scratch, deeply. He eventually got the cat loose and ended up with many stitches and a nicked tendon in his hand.
Animal control had to extract the cat from the house and was put down.

Just make sure it’s decaf.
what is this vat people keep mentioning
these dope probably were mean to the cat and maybe baby pulled its tail or was laying on cat
I love that movie!
Heh heh heh.
Your story makes a lot more sense. Your friend didn’t take the cat to therapy - he got rid of it.
News media is reporting that the large 22 pound cat is a Himalayan?
We have two male Himalayan cats and they are a mixture of Persion with the Siamese points. (Not like the black and white cat that the lamestream media has shown.)
See below photos of Himalayan cats...
I wouldn’t trust the cat again, especially with a 7 month old in the house.
had a cat like that once....sold it to some traveling Romani cat jugglers.
Any time your cat seems to be just looking at you, what he is actually doing is plotting to kill you...
...it was getting ready to go back to school.
“Confessions of a Metrosexual Moron”
Wonder if the "Mama's Boy" tat is a clue...?
I would have thrown a sheet over it, wadded it up, and thrown the damn cat outside...For Good!!!
