PORTLAND, Ore. The large cat that scratched a Portland toddler last week and then trapped his owners in a bedroom has gone home after a stay at the animal shelter.
Spokesman Mike Oswald said Thursday that Lux is healthy and shows no signs of abuse, so when the owners wanted him back, the Multnomah County Animal Services agency released him.
Oswald says the shelter does everything it can to accommodate a family that decides not to surrender an animal.
The Oregonian reports the 4-year-old Himalayan arrived Monday at the shelter after owners Lee Palmer and Teresa Barker asked workers there to come for him.
Since then, a local cat-behavior specialist has offered to help the owners. Lux is also slated for an episode of "My Cat from Hell" on Animal Planet.
