You see, when the California man was told by has parents that he couldn’t see the family cat, he did what any sensible human being would do: he bit them.

[The] man has pleaded no contest to felony assault for biting his parents when they told him he couldn’t see the family cat, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Yevgeniy Bolshakov, 26, entered his plea Monday in San Mateo County Superior Court before Judge Jonathan Karesh. Bolshakov was given credit for time served and placed on three years of probation.

Bolshakov had lived in an apartment with his parents, and when he came home from an outing on Nov. 30, he asked about the cat, which had recently undergone surgery.

His parents told Bolshakov that the cat was recuperating and that he couldn’t see the pet, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
