Cat attacks family

Two people were left badly bruised after being attacked by an Angora cat.

The incident took place in Novosibirsk, Siberia on Wednesday. According to the Novosibirsk Rescue Service, a two-year-old domestic cat attacked its masters, a woman and her daughter, who returned to their flat after a lengthy absence. The cat, who had been left home all alone, suddenly attacked them both, leaving them bitten and bruised. The woman was forced to summon a rescuer, who walked into the flat clad in a padded suit and caught the cat. The animal was then taken to a veterinary clinic, where it will be kept under surveillance for ten days.

Specialists say such things sometimes happen to domestic cats if they are left all alone for a long time. A cat that feels neglected may be more dangerous than a dog, they say.
