The dispatcher was a bit confused on why the man was calling police. "So you want the police to come and remove the cat? What is the problem, like..."

Yes, that was exactly what the man wanted. So the dispatcher asked for some more information about the feline.

"Was something wrong with the cat?"

"We don't know...[inaudible]...she has a baby last night, and then she was good until 10, 11 o'clock today, and I come from outside and I change my clothes...[inaudible]...and he come to attack me," the man described of the incident. "It's so aggressive and so mad," he continued.
