Three members of a California family called police Tuesday night and were taken to a hospital after a pet cat attacked inside their home.

"The cat ran and jumped on his leg and was like, attached to him," the cat's owner, who was clawed in the face, told News10.net. "He's never been an aggressive cat, he's never been mean, he just flipped."

The cat, named Khat, reportedly even attacked firefighters who were sent to the Roseville home.

"We tried to push it into a cage, and it grabbed on to my engineer's boot and turnout bottom and was hissing and going off."

The station reported that the family suffered from superficial wounds and the cat was taken to the SPCA.
