CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) - Two San Diego County women had to get help from police after being trapped in a bedroom by a family cat that a neighbor calls "a ball of fury."

Chula Vista police tell KGTV-TV a woman and her adult daughter called 911 Tuesday to say they were stuck in the bedroom because their cat "Cuppy" was in a rage and wouldn't let them leave.

Police say such matters are usually left to animal control, but officers were in the neighborhood on a quiet night and carefully tried to coax Cuppy out.

They say eventually the cat walked out on its own.

Neighbor Karen Yarger says the cat has been a family pet for years but is unpredictable, especially when stray cats come around.

She says "he's just a ball of fury I guess."
