Claws come out in bizarre cat fight


A Portland, Oregon couple is in conflict over their cat, named “Violet.”

 Owners Lisa and Emily Szefel are trying to get Violet back after they left her at their old house in Hillsboro. Turns out Violet had hid in the crawl space of their old home when the movers came, just over two weeks ago.

 “Her favorite hiding spot was the crawl space,” says Emily Szefel. “She’s never actually gone in there this deep and not come out.”

 A new couple bought the home and lives there now, with Violet. When they discovered cat pee in their home, they realized Violet was hiding in the crawl space and called the Szefels to tell them.

 Lisa Szefel said the owners let her go to the house every day for a week to try and retrieve Violet. Lisa brought cat food, water and a litter box, hoping to coax Violet out, but the cat wouldn’t budge. The Szefels said part of the problem was timing.

 “Violet will only come out at dawn and dusk,” said Emily. “She won’t come out in the afternoon.”

 “When I went over, I had to go over at the new owners’ convenience,” said Lisa. “The only time they would let me go is in the afternoon.”
