DELAND — A 4-year-old Russian blue cat named Kush is being quarantined after apparently going berserk inside a central Florida home.
Police say the feline scratched owners Teresa and James Gregory on their arms and legs on Saturday, causing the couple to retreat to a bedroom, where they called 911.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Teresa Gregory told the dispatcher she had mistakenly stepped on the cat’s tail earlier in the day and the cat went after her husband. They locked Kush in the bedroom for most of the day. When they finally opened the door, Kush wasn’t happy.
Kush was placed in quarantine for 10 days at a pet shelter. Officials say Gregory can then take the cat back home, relinquish ownership or have it put down.
