Fairfield, Conn (AHN) - Residents of the neighborhood of Sunset Circle say they have been terrorized by a crazy cat named Lewis, The Associated Press reports.

Lewis, for his part, has been uniquely cited, personally issued a restraining order by the town's animal control officer.

Janet Kettman, a neighbor said Monday, "He looks like Felix the Cat and has six toes on each foot, each with a long claw. They are formidable weapons."

The neighbors said those weapons, along with catlike stealth, have allowed Lewis to attack at least a half dozen people and ambush the Avon lady as she was getting out of her car.

Some of those who were bitten and scratched ended up seeking treatment at area hospitals. It was the first time such an action was taken against a cat in Fairfield.

In effect, Lewis is under house arrest, forbidden to leave his home. The cat's owner, Ruth Cisero, was also arrested on charges of failing to comply with the restraining order and reckless endangerment.

Sounds familiar.
