From Bay News 9:

DELAND -- A cat is being quarantined for 10 days after it attacked its owners inside a Volusia County home, leaving the couple with several scratches to their legs and hands.

Teresa and James Gregory called the DeLand Police Department around 7 p.m. July 5, in regard to an aggressive cat.

When police arrived, the Gregorys both said that Kush, their 4-year-old Russian Blue cat, became aggressive and attacked them.

Both James and Teresa Gregory sustained several scratches to their legs and hands, police said. They declined treatment but did want the cat removed from the home.

DeLand Animal Control arrived and will quarantine the cat for 10 days. The owners said the cat has never had any shots or vaccinations.
