Help! My Cat Is Holding Me Hostage


Don’t you just love cats? They’re so independent and weird. Our kitty, Butters, loves to do “drive-bys” on us in the middle of the night. If the bathroom faucet isn’t at a trickle she’ll make us pay for it. She’ll launch herself from the highest spot above our bed, pounce on my wife, bounce as high as she can and crash-land on top of me, then escape before I can grab her. Believe me, at three in the morning, dead asleep, it’s not a pretty sight. If we ignore her, she’ll wait a few minutes (just long enough that we’re almost asleep again), and then repeat. Until I get up and turn on the water.


Yep, our cat certainly is a little eccentric, but she’s never held our family hostage (unless you call “I’ll keep jumping on top of you in the middle-of-the-night until you do what I want” holding us hostage). And I’ve never called 911 on her. Not like Lee Palmer did on his cat.

  • Dispatcher: 911
  • Palmer: I have a kind of particular emergency here.

Palmer’s 22 pound black and white Himalayan named Lux had cornered his Oregon family in their bedroom, forcing them to call 911 for help. Yep. 911.

  • Palmer: My cat attacked a, a 7 month old child. And I kicked the butt the cat in the rear. It just went off over the edge and we um aren’t safe around the cat. It’s a very large Himalayan and we’re trapped in our bedroom, he won’t let us out the door. He’s really, he’s bad right now. He’s charging us. He’s at our door, bedroom door.
  • Dispatcher: One moment OK?
  • Palmer: You hear him screaming? That was the cat.
  • Dispatcher: Yeah I hear him. Hold on. Keep your door shut OK?

Lux was eventually caught by police and placed behind bars … the bars of his crate that is. Palmer says they’re not giving up on Lux though and are getting him medical attention and therapy. A pet psychologist is coming to the house to see Lux. Good luck. After that, maybe the shrink can stop by my house to see Butters …. before I call 911.
