Houston Man Attacked By Neighborhood Cat

Updated: Tuesday, August 26 2014, 01:42 PM CDT

Residents of a Houston neighborhood say a cat has become a dangerous nuisance. For the more than a year, the cat has been going after people and pets, even attacking a man overnight.

"The cat jumped off the fence and ran towards the dogs and myself. I got in the way of the dogs to try and protect the dogs and the cat latched on to my leg and scratched it," says David Heights.

The owner of this cat says he doesn't attack people, but has run up to dogs before. The cat's owner says she wasn't home during this most recent incident.

David's wife reported the incident to the city. In cases like this, the city will investigate, primarily because of concern over rabies.

The cat's owner could not show proof of a current rabies vaccine but said her cat is up to date on his shots. It's against city law to keep a domestic animal, including cats, outside.  Dogs are one exception to that rule, because they can't climb a fence like cats can.
