An Oregon family had to call 911 to save them from their 22-pound cat.

The cat had attacked a 7-month-old baby Sunday night. The baby was OK, but the family had to take refuge in a bedroom as the cat continued to rage outside, Portland TV station KATU reported.

"I kicked the cat in the rear and it has went off over the edge and we aren't safe around the cat," Lee Palmer said in a 911 call.

"The cat, we don't know what to do about the cat. He's trying to attack us. When I leave the bedroom to let the police in, I'm gonna have to fight this cat."

Officers had to use a dog snare to capture the cat and put it in a crate, The Associated Press reported.

The owners said the cat has a history of violence. It remains with the family in Portland.
