Cat got your thumb?

A man in suburban Indianapolis put the "ow" in meow when he called police Thursday to report a cat bit him on his right thumb.

Craig Wyatt's manliness score took a major hit when he called the boys in blue after a kitten in a woodpile chomped down on his digit while he tried to string a tie around its neck. It's unclear if he owned the cat.

By the time cops raced to the scene, the cat was tied to a tree. An officer who took down the report said the kitty was "very calm and nonaggressive unless it was provoked."

Authorities removed the cat, while Wyatt filed "a bite report." Despite the legal precautions taken, we're pretty sure the feline won't face any charges.
