How dangerous can domestic cats be?

Post by Kitkat on 12th March 2014, 12:59



A pet cat with a "history of violence" attacked a baby before trapping a family and dog in a room. How much of a threat are house-trained felines to the human population?

Lux, a 10kg (22lbs) black-and-white Himalayan, scratched a seven-month-old baby in the face, according to police in Portland, Oregon, USA. When the child's father Lee Palmer struck the four-year-old animal on the rear in retaliation, it began charging at the family, forcing them to take refuge in their bedroom. "He's very, very, very, very hostile," Palmer told an operator in a panicked 911 call, during which Lux could be heard screeching in the background. Palmer added that his pet had a "history of violence".

Yeah, and quite likely that Palmer has a history of violence too.  annoyed

He KICKED the cat or struck it with something?  Whatever "struck" means there, it was obviously done with some force.  The poor animal was probably in a lot of pain.  Who knows --- maybe already in pain from previous 'strikes'.  Of course its going to screech IN PAIN and try to defend itself!  angry 

People like that should not be allowed to have animals as pets.   scratch
