California women call police over cat's furry fury

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) — Two San Diego County women had to get help from police after being trapped in a bedroom by a family cat that a neighbor calls "a ball of fury."

Chula Vista police tell KGTV-TV (http://bit.ly/1mGRoqI) a woman and her adult daughter called 911 Tuesday to say they were stuck in the bedroom because their cat "Cuppy" was in a rage and wouldn't let them leave.

Police say such matters are usually left to animal control, but officers decided to help out on a quiet night. They say eventually the cat walked out on its own.

Neighbor Karen Yarger says the cat has been a family pet for years but is unpredictable.

A Portland, Oregon, family went through a similar ordeal, when their cat Lux attacked a baby and boxed his owners in a bedroom.
