Highlights

  1. The out-of-control cat attacked one of its owners in Wisconsin
  2. Cat was put in a room to calm down, attacked again after being let out
  3. Couple called cops for assistance, cat handed over to animal control
In a bizarre case, an American couple called police claiming they have been taken hostage by their pet cat.

The pair from Wisconsin decided to call the authorities to deal with the out-of-control cat, who minutes before had attacked the husband.

Talking to the operator, the woman said: "This is gonna sound like a strange question but we have a cat and it's going crazy and it attacked my husband.

"We're kind of hostage in our house and we're just wondering who we should call to do something, get rid of the cat or help us?"

In the end, the officers came over, the feisty cat was taken away and husband and wife escaped unharmed, almost.

The cat attacked the woman's husband last week. They put it in a room to calm down, but after they let it out, it attacked him again.

Police turned the cat over to animal control, WISN Milwaukee reported.

"There's been weirder (calls), but this is one of the more unusual ones. This one was unusual with the circumstances, but it's not unusual for us to handle animal complaints," Greenfield police Sgt Matt Borchardt said.

Animal control officer said the cat is currently in quarantine.
