Family held hostage by 22-pound cat
Trouble started when a 7-month-old child pulled Lux's tail and the cat scratched him on the forehead. The child's father kicked the cat, and then the Himalayan trapped the family in a bedroom. They called 911.
Although the family describes the incident as scary, the Portland Police Department seems to have found it humorous. The police report says that officers apprehended Lux as he was "attempting to flee custody" and that "officers were able to outwit the high-strung Himalayan."
