We've heard of a horny woman calling 911 because she wants to have sex with an officer.
And we've heard of a kid calling 911 for help with his math homework.
But this is a first: A family in Portland called the authorities on Sunday night because it was under attack from its 22-pound cat.
According to Lee Palmer, the feline scratched his seven-month old son and was "sent over the edge" when Lee kicked him "in the rear" as a punishment.
"He's trying to attack us, he's very hostile. He's at our door; he's charging us," Palmer says in the 911 call, which was placed with him, his wife and their baby locked in the bedroom.
