On the first anniversary of this cat holding a family hostage... where is he now?

Lux touched the lives of so many.

MARCH 11TH, 2014 will go down in history as the day a family had to call the Police because their cat was holding them hostage.

Lux, a 22-pound Himalayan cat, attacked a Oregon family’s baby and held all of them captive in their house with his violent behaviour.

Stationed in the upstairs bathroom, father Lee called 911 to solve the hostage crisis:


Now, exactly one year later, people are fondly reminiscing about Lux and how it might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to news

But where is Lux? Well, there is a ‘Lux the Cat’ Community page on Facebook that is still an active community

According to this page, the most recent update came in December of last year when this blog post updated us on Lux’s whereabouts. Everyone on the ‘Lux the Cat’ Facebook page was very happy with the news:

She says Lux is in a forever home and is being well taken care of. That is good news indeed! Thanks to everyone who rallied behind this beautiful cat – the outpouring of love and concern surely saved his life. Happy New Year to Lux, his new family, and all who helped him and supported him. Hope 2015 will be a good year!

It would appear the famous 911 cat is alive and well, and all of us should strive to remember the great cat hostage story of 2014.
