Mews and Nips: Police Officer’s Cat is a Cat Burglar


Talk about irony: a police officer with a cat who’s a burglar? Sounds more like a script for a sitcom than real life, doesn’t it? But Oregon police sergeant Dave Kempas happily admits that his kleptokitty Tigger appears to be the ringleader of a well-organized heist that began four years ago. Tigger, sometimes accompanied by one of Kempas’ other cats, has stolen everything from socks to Wendy’s French fry boxes, candy wrappers and rubber gloves. One time, he even brought back a small bag of weed. Rather than arresting Tigger for his crimes, Kempas was so amused by his cat’s antics that he started a Facebook page for him. Read more about Tigger in the Lake Oswego Review.

If you missed any of the stories on the Conscious Cat featured this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, we told you that Jackson Galaxy’s new book, Catify to Satisfy, is now available for pre-order, on Monday, we provided a 13-question checklist that you should ask before scheduling a dental procedure for your cat, on Tuesday, we reviewed the V-Lounge cat lounger, on Wednesday, we featured an adorable (if I do say so myself) video of Ruby trying to chase dry leaves on our deck, on Thursday,w we announced that our 2016 wall calendar, featuring Allegra and Ruby, is now available for purchase, and on Friday, we reviewed How Smart is Your Cat?

Today’s video of cats checking themselves out in the mirror is sure to bring a smile – enjoy!
