PORTLAND — A 22-pound house cat that trapped a Portland family in a bedroom this month has been taken to the Multnomah County Animal Services shelter.
Shelter director Mike Oswald told The Oregonian the family called animal services Monday and asked workers to come get the cat named Lux.
Oswald says the family hasn’t made a final decision on whether to keep Lux.
Owner Lee Palmer told a 911 dispatcher March 9 that he kicked the cat after the animal scratched his 7-month-old baby. The cat then went ballistic, leading Palmer and his girlfriend to barricade themselves, their baby and the family dog in the bedroom.
Portland police arrived and captured Lux on top of the refrigerator using a snare.
