A man was accused of biting his parents after they would not allow him to see his cat.

Yevgeniy Bolshakov, 26, of Daly City, California, has pleaded guilty to assault for biting his parents and threatening to burn their house down when he was told he could not see the family cat.

Bolshakov was sentenced to seven months in jail and placed on three years probation. The incident happened when he came home and asked about the cat that had recently undergone surgery. He was denied access to the cat.

His parents told Bolshakov that the cat was recovering and that he could not see the pet, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. Bolshakov became angry and bit his 64-year-old father in the arm, tearing off a piece of flesh, the prosecutor said.

Bolshakov also bit his father twice in the shoulder and once in the chin. When his mother tried to intervene, Bolshakov hit her in the head and bit her on the hand, Wagstaffe said.

Police were called and they arrested him. As he was being led away, he threatened to kill his parents and burn down the apartment.

Bolshakov was ordered to undergo counseling and is forbidden to have contact with his parents as part of his plea deal.
