You’ve never seen “It Takes A Thief” on the Discovery Channel, have you?
Also, I’ve heard of a housecat that took down an invading burglar. From the story and if I recall correctly, the cat tripped him, swarmed his head, ripped out the guy’s jugular, and then peed on his face. Burglar died, of course.
Back in the ‘50s, my dad told of a jeweler in town whose only security system was two territorial Persian cats, and they were very effective.
