PORTLAND – Lux, the Portland cat that captured the attention of the nation after he trapped his family in a bedroom, has been rehomed, according to an Oregonian report.

In March, Lux’s owner, Lee Palmer, called 911 after he said Lux attacked the family’s baby and scared them so much they barricaded themselves in a bedroom.

The Animal Planet show ‘My Cat from Hell’ decided to step in and intervene. The episode, which aired Saturday, showed host Jackson Galaxy trying to calm the aggressive cat down.

The Oregonian reports the show’s host, Jackson Galaxy, suggested Lux be rehomed with a foster family.

Lux reportedly attacked his foster mother’s leg unexpectedly, but the foster family decided to adopt Lux anyway.
