SoCal Family ‘Held Hostage’ by Cat; Cops Called
CHULA VISTA (KTLA)-
An angry cat named “Cuppy” terrorized a Chula Vista family earlier this week, forcing a mother and her adult daughter to barricade themselves inside a room and call 911, according to reports.
“Female’s calling on 911 advising that her cat is holding her and her adult daughter hostage in the bedroom and it attacks them when they try to leave,” an emergency operator said over the radio, according to an audio recording.
Police responded to the call early Tuesday morning and faced off with the cat at the front entrance of the home, video from the scene showed. A neighbor tried to help by giving officers a broom.
Police were eventually able to coax the cat out of the house.
