Denied permission to see family cat, man bit parents

Yevheniy Bolshakov, 26, pleaded guilty this week to an assault charge and was placed on probation for three years. He reportedly was denied permission by his parents to see the family cat, which was recuperating after an operation. So he attacked, biting his father's arm, elbow and chin, and his mother's hand.

  3. All parties in the dispute are willing to stipulate that he really, really loves the cat.
