Andrew Woodard beamed with excitement as he proudly displayed his Playstation 4 console. But the holiday excitement did not last long as his cat, Magneto, suddenly attacked him.
Woodward was brought to a hospital and needed stitches after the cat clawed his head.
“One moment I’m sitting up opening up a Christmas present, being overly excited, and the next minute I’m lying on the floor hurting,” he told Inside Edition.
After the video was posted online, Magneto skyrocketed to fame as a villain, but Andrew and his wife Kimberly are defending their cat.
“He is not a jerk, he is so nice. What happened was completely out of character for him,” he said.
Magneto is in the care of a temporary cat sitter as the couple is currently on vacation.
