House cat in Oregon attacks baby, traps family in bedroom

The incident began when the cat, a black-and-white Himalayan, scratched a 7-month-old baby in the face, according to Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. The baby’s father kicked the cat in the backside, which sent it into a rage, and the parents and baby, along with their dog, retreated into a bedroom as the father called police, Simpson said. Meanwhile, the cat blocked the bedroom doorway and could be heard on the 911 call screeching loudly, Simpson said. — Reuters

Colorado man saved from flood faces backlash for suing rescuers

A Colorado man who was rescued after he hit a washed out road and ended up stuck in a creek during a Broomfield County flood last year may be suing the people who rescued him and the county for up to $500,000. Roy Ortiz is filing the lawsuit because he claims the rescuers from North Metro Fire Rescue should have gotten to him faster and were negligent because they didn’t realize he was trapped in his upside-down car. Ortiz was stuck in the cold water of the creek for about two hours. But he admits he has heard some criticism about the suit. — Reuters
