Oregon Attack Cat Goes To Pet Therapy

Lux Gets Pet Therapy

Lux, the 22 pound cat who terrorized a Portland family, is getting the help that he needs via pet therapy.

Lux the Cat became an overnight sensation after he attacked his owners’ baby and trapped the entire family in their bedroom, forcing them to call 911.

The Palmer family baby pulled on the Lux’s tail prompting the angry cat to scratch the infant on the forehead. Fair enough. But instead of punishing the baby (who clearly started it), Lee Palmer went the other way and kicked the cat “in the rear” to protect his child. At this point Lux lost it and “just went off over the edge”. Palmer, his girlfriend, the baby, and the family dog were forced to barricade themselves in the bedroom for safety. After getting no answer at animal control, the couple called 911 and told the operator that Lux has a “history of violence”.

During the call, the cat can be heard screeching in the background as Palmer said in a panicked voice: “He’s charging us. He’s at our bedroom door.”

Two days after police arrived to rescue the family from the 4-year-old part-Himalayan cat, the Palmer family announced they are keeping Lux but giving him medical attention and therapy.

“We’re not getting rid of him right now,” Palmer said. “He’s been part of our family for a long time.”

In addition to a trip to the vet, a pet psychologist is due at the house to spend some time with Lux.

While it sounds a bit ridiculous, pet therapy is a much better solution than what Laura Cunliffe, the worst person in the world, came up with when her kitten attacked her goldfish. The Brit, who deserves to die a slow painful death, admitted putting her black-and-white cat Mowgli into the microwave and turning it on for five minutes. After taking it out at the minute mark, the poor kitten died a horrible death 90 minutes later.

District Judge John Foster said that act was it “was an act of utterly horrendous cruelty”, sentencing her to 14 weeks in prison and banning her from keeping animals for life. 14 weeks in prison??? 14 weeks in a microwave on high heat would be a much more fitting punishment. I don’t care how many mental problems you have, it’s not an excuse to torture.
