Lee Palmer, who called 911 after the cat turned "hostile", explained to the dispatcher the cat "went over the edge," and was charging at them every time they opened the door.

He, along with his girlfriend, baby son and pet dog, was forced to take cover in the bedroom as the Himalayan cat continued to rage outside.

"He's trying to attack us. He's very, very, very, very hostile."

So what caused this cat to turn on the hands that feed it?

Well, according to reports, the cat had become angry after it scratched his 7-month-old baby - with the father striking the feline in order to teach it a lesson: "I kicked the cat in the rear and it has went off over the edge and we aren't safe around the cat."

You can listen to the extremely unusual 911 call below:

According to reports from US site WBTV, police said the cat was "attempting to flee custody" when they arrived at the property.

Eventually officers captured the animal and placed it behind bars in a crate, telling the family it was safe to come out of the bedroom:

"The cat remained behind bars in the custody of the family, and officers cleared the scene and continued to fight crime elsewhere in the city."

And, while many people are chuckling about the incident, Teresa Barker has revealed that it was actually a very frightening experience:

"It's only funny when it's not happening to you. When this happens to you, I assure you, you will do the same thing."
