Attack cat spared but forced indoorsItems compiled from Tribune news servicesPublished June 21, 2006

BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT -- A state judge on Tuesday spared the life of Lewis the cat, whose vicious attacks on neighbors landed his owner in court. But the cat was ordered confined to the house at all times."There are no exceptions. None," Judge Patrick Carroll told Lewis' owner, Ruth Cisero.If Lewis gets out, even accidentally, Cisero could face up to 6 months in jail, and Lewis' fate would be in the hands of animal control officers.Cisero had faced a charge of reckless endangerment because neighbors complained that the black and white cat's long claws and stealth had allowed it to attack at least a half-dozen people. Some who were bitten and scratched ended up seeking treatment at hospitals.
