A rather unusual 911 call has been making the rounds of the Internet today. Apparently, a family in Oregon had a baby, and their cat was most displeased. The cat went on a reign of terror, scratching the baby and scaring the family so badly they locked themselves in the bedroom and. To catch their angry cat.
The entire 911 call is … interesting, but the part where the cat is yowling in the background as the dispatcher double checks with her supervisor that this is a real emergency is the best part. It also leads to so, so many questions. The cat was a hefty 22 pounds, but one would assume this cat was also a bit out of shape if it was that large. More importantly, how did a full-grown adult not think they could take on a pound cat? I have a pound Labrador who gets very angry and paranoid around our neighbor’s dog, and I can hold him back when he’s pulling full-bore. Get the baby to safety and take on the cat!
In what falls into the oddest part of this story, the family is keeping the cat!
