A Stamford man called 911 on his cat after she attacked him and prevented the man and his wife from getting into their house for three or four hours.

Dispatchers received the 911 call at 1:36 a.m. on Thursday from a man who reported that his 7.5 pound cat attacked him soon after she gave birth and the couple had not been able to get into their home for hours.

“I cannot go inside in my home,” he said. “The problem is that my cat was getting too aggressive.”

He said the cat attacked his leg and bit him, so he and his wife went outside and had not able to get inside.

“This is, you said a cat?” the dispatcher asked, and inquired what the man wanted police to do.
He said he wanted police to come and remove his cat.

“Was something wrong with the cat?” the dispatcher asked.

“She had a baby last night. And then she was good until 10-11 o’clock today,” he said.

But when the resident tried to get back inside, the cat went on the attack.

“Five minutes ago, I tried to open the door again, and she (was) waiting in the door,” he said. She was in attacking mode.

Eventually, the homeowner managed to muster up enough courage to walk into his house and go to bed, police said.

“They were advised to stay away from each other the rest of the night,” police said in a statement.
