You’re probably familiar with the infamous frantic 911 call from March of this year when Lee Palmer and his family barricaded themselves in a bedroom in Oregon to escape their angry cat, Lux, a big black & white Himalayan mix.

Well, it’s happened again. This time to a family in DeLand, Florida. Teresa and James Gregory called the DeLand Police Department around 7 p.m. July 5 in regards to Kush, their 4-year-old Russian Blue cat.

According to News 13:

When police arrived, the Gregorys both said that Kush, their 4-year-old Russian Blue cat, became aggressive and attacked them.

Both James and Teresa Gregory sustained several scratches to their legs and hands, police said. They declined treatment but did want the cat removed from the home.

DeLand Animal Control arrived and will quarantine the cat for 10 days. The owners said the cat has never had any shots or vaccinations.

Hear part of the 911 call in the video below:

There is no word yet on whether Kush will be returned back to the Gregory’s home after her 10 day quarantine. She’s never been outside of the house, but she’s also never been vaccinated, so she’ll probably have to undergo some testing to find out what may have caused her unusual behavior.

    Obviously, these people can not possibly love their cat. I feel sorry for the cat, not the people.
