PORTLAND, Ore. (UPI) — Police in Oregon said they were called to rescue a family who locked themselves in the bathroom when their 22-pound cat became aggressive and attacked a baby.

Portland Police said the family called 911 Sunday night to report their black and white Himalayan cat had become aggressive and attacked their baby, but did not cause any serious injuries before the family members were able to lock themselves in the bathroom with the family dog, the Columbian, in Vancouver, Wash., reported Tuesday.

Officers arrived at the home and saw the cat flee into the kitchen. They were able to get a dog snare around the feline when it attempted to elude capture on top of the refrigerator and the cat was safely locked in its crate.

The officers told the family it was safe to come out of the bathroom and the cat was left in their custody. The family’s baby did not require medical attention, police said.
