Cat-Photographer-1
Photographer Joseph C. Payro’s children – Edmund (12), Ernest (8) and Cecilia (5) – being ‘photographed’ by their cat in 1909.

‘Payro, you’re an idiot’, they said.  ‘A century from now, no one will care that you rubbed a kipper on the side of that Box Brownie!’

How wrong they were.

A pet cat turned into a “ball of fury” and trapped a mother and her adult daughter inside their California home. The furious feline, named Cuppy, attacked the pair every time they tried to make an escape from the property in Chula Vista, San Diego.

They were forced to call 911 for police assistance after barricading themselves inside a bedroom, according to KGTV-TV. The animal became incensed when one of the women got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom on August 12. Armed officers were filmed in a standoff with the irate pet before he eventually calmed down and strolled out of the house.

Any excuse.
