An Omaha woman called police for help controlling one of her cats after she threatened it with a timeout for fighting.
Police were called to an apartment near 37th and Dodge streets about 5:15 p.m. Monday. A 52-year-old woman told officers that her two cats had been fighting. She said she warned the more aggressive cat that she was going to "put it in its room," according to a police report.
The cat became enraged, the woman told officers, and began to attack her. The woman said she finally was able to corral the fierce feline and lock it in a bedroom.
The woman was taken to Nebraska Medicine for treatment of "multiple superficial claw marks." The cat was taken into custody by officers from the Nebraska Humane Society. No word on whether the cat will face feline-y charges.
Our pets aren’t just companion animals. They’re treasured friends, and even beloved family members. While it’s never fun or pleasant to think about what will happen to them if the worst should happen to us, it’s very important to consider how we can ensure they are well cared for when and if we are no longer able to care for them ourselves. Thankfully, creating a solid plan through a pet trust can help give us peace of mind.
