Conn. homeowner calls 911 to report 3-hour stand-off with his cat

Connecticut police have released a 911 call a homeowner made after his 8-pound cat turned violent and prevented him from entering the house.

CBS New York says Mohammed Lokman, of Stamford, was sitting in his car when he dialed 911 on his ferocious feline around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

“I have a problem in my house. I cannot go inside my house,” Lokman says to the dispatcher on the 911 call obtained by FOX CT.

“What’s the problem?” the dispatcher asks.

“The problem is my cat was getting too aggressive and she attacked me and scratched me in my leg and bit me. So me and my wife, we come outside and now we cannot go in the home for like three or four hours,” Lokman says from his car.

“Okay, and this is you said a cat?” the dispatcher says, sounding a little puzzled.

“Yeah.” 

“Okay so where is the cat?”

 “Sorry.”

“Where is the cat?”

“In my house.”

“Okay so you want the police to come and remove the cat? What is the problem, like …” the dispatcher asks.

Lokman told the dispatcher that he wanted police to remove the cat. He said he didn’t know why the pet was acting so strange. He said the cat had a kitten the night before and had been fine until she attacked him.

“It’s so aggressive and so mad,” Lokman told the dispatcher.

Katina WArgo with Stamford Animal Control told CBS New York the cat may have been trying to protect her kitten.

FOX CT said Lokman eventually got back inside with the help of officers sent to his home.

Sgt. Kelly Connelly told the Daily Voice in Stamford that the officers advised Lokman and the cat to stay away from each other for the remainder of the night.
