DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) — A Bay Area man is facing charges after authorities say he viciously attacked his parents after they refused to allow him to see the family cat.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says when 26-year-old Yevgeniy Bolshakov of Daly City came home from an outing Saturday, he asked his parents about the cat.

When they told him it was recovering from surgery and that he couldn't see the animal, Wagstaffe says, Bolshakov punched his 64-year-old father in the head, biting the older man on the arm and ripping off a piece of flesh, before biting and punching his mother.

Bolshakov pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of assault, mayhem and making criminal threats.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Bolshakov is in county jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

i would be willing to say that this son does not have good history with the family cat, may have even caused the cat to have the surgery. if he was the cause, it was the parents responsibility to protect that cat at all costs, because the cat is in no condition to fight off a person like that. and i would let him sit in jail for the duration and let him think about what he did to his parents. cudos to them for having him arrested.

So what if the cat was recovering from surgery. No reason to deny a son to see the cat. Unless he's the one that caused injury to the cat?
