Cat attacks baby, traps Oregon family in bedroom

PORTLAND, Ore. (KGW) - A family in Portland, Oregon barricaded themselves in a bedroom in their house after their cat started terrorizing them.

The owners of this 22-pound Himalayan named "Lux" say the cat attacked their 8-month-old baby, and then went after the dog.

When they locked themselves into bedroom, they say the cat wouldn't let them out.

As you can see from this video, the cat is now tame.

From inside the bedroom, they made this 911 call.

Caller: He's charging us. He's at our door, our bedroom door.

Dispatcher: One moment, OK?

Caller: Do you hear him? That was the cat.

Dispatcher: Yeah, I hear him. Keep the door shut, ok?

The baby was not hurt.

Police were able to capture Lux with a dog snare when he scaled the family's refrigerator.

The man who called 911 told the dispatcher that the kitty started acting violent after he kicked the cat in the rear when it swiped at the baby.
