Cat 'Arrested' After Home Break-In Attempt

A “fat and aggressive” cat named Oscar was arrested by police at the weekend for trespassing into a home in northern Swedish home and stealing food.

A family in Piteå took action after what they first thought was a stray cat had been terrorizing the family's own felines.

They left out a cat trap for the mischievous pussy and captured him soon thereafter.

They then put a call into local police, who arrived on the scene and promptly took the cat into custody.

After taking the cat burglar down to the station, the police soon realized the offending feline was no wild outlaw.

“It is a fat, well-groomed and well-cared for cat – it’s no stray cat,” said Erik Kummu of the Norrbotten police to the Aftonbladet newspaper at the time.

The cat nevertheless spent the night in the lock-up, with police waiting to see if an owner would show up as the cat didn’t match any of those that had been reported missing.

The police told local papers that if no owner claimed the cat as their own, it would be put down.

On Sunday night, however, the cat-owner reclaimed the pet, which goes by the name of Oscar, no doubt saving at least one of the cat’s nine lives.

However, the cat-owner refused to comment to the paper on his pet's alleged crimes.

Thought this might be about Issa's committee and Eric Holder.

I wish I could find that Far Side where the police are arresting the cat, guns drawn, pointed at kitty’s head, while the matronly Far Side type lady turns to the dog and harumphs, “I hope you’re happy now!”

Yes! That’s the one! I love the surprised look on the cat’s face, and the way cops are all business. The dog is enjoying his revenge cold.

Last year we adopted a Kitten, and her two Kittens. I don’t think the Mother was a year old yet, and she had two babies. They needed a home, and suckers that we are they got one.

I bring this up because of the picture you posted of the two jailbirds from Icanhascheezburger.com. The black one on the Left is identical to the daughter “Cooter” of “Boots” who is a black and white similar to the one on the right, but the eyes, and face are different. It’s a match though on “Cooter”. I don’t think there’s a match anywhere for “Cooter’s” BIG Bwuver “Scooter”. He’s hard to describe. Just cat I guess.

OY, that’s how hubby feels about ours!

One is all black too. The other is a complete neurotic nut-case. I’m still going to try and get pills for her. That cat needs a valium.

They both love me though, I have to say that.

Hubby needs a dog.

(SIGH)

Thanks for letting me vent!

The black kitten reminds me of my Dizzy. She was a sweetie. RIP, honey.

Well, the picture looks like a tortie, which almost certainly makes it female; however, the story says the cat's name is "Oscar," which is a male name.

So, I'm confused! Is this cat male or female?

In any case, going by the picture, he/she is certainly a looker!
