    A Homer Glen man is reportedly suing a woman for $100,000 after her cat allegedly attacked him while he was cat-sitting.

    The lawsuit said that William Baxter was feeding Christine Boback’s cat on April 22, 2011 when the cat “viciously attacked, bit and clawed” him, causing serious injuries to Baxter’s ring finger and clawing his left arm, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Baxter reportedly filed suit against Bobak March 22 in Will County Circuit Court, seeking $50,000 for each injury.

    The suit alleges the incident was not the cat’s first attack and Boback should have known it was dangerous.
