A couple in Bristol in the UK received a warning notice from the Royal Mail that deliveries to their home may be suspended “due to the actions of a cat on the property.” It turns out that Bella, a beautiful black and white moggy, thinks it’s a fun game when the mail starts coming through the slot in the door, and has been batting at the envelopes as soon as they start appearing. The notice stated that the postman reported that when he pushes the mail through the letterbox, the cat “snatches the mail and puts his fingers at risk.” Visit the Bristol Post to watch a video of Bella in action.
