Elusive Cat Burglar Finally Caught!

Updated on May 19, 2011

Don't Shoot !! I Surrender!!

Home Invasion Perpetrator Trapped by Vigilant Homeowner!

NEWS FLASH - A cunning, masterful burglar that has been breaking into homes in the area for months finally met his demise. Reports have been made stating that this master thief has been able to get into homes with little or no trouble whatsoever. No fingerprints or evidence has been left behind in any of the burglarized homes. Interviews with the homeowners of burglarized homes have sworn that all doors and windows have been locked or secured and there was no possible way anyone could get inside without the occupants knowing.

Investigators have been baffled for months, even authorizing stake outs in the neighborhoods that have had the highest percentage of break-ins. Police state that they have seen no suspicious people in these areas and are at a loss to explain how the burglar has eluded police for so long. More patrols have been added making the police presence highly visible, but there has been no reduction in crime and the break ins continue.

One resident recently interviewed said he has sat up in a chair several nights in a row when the homes on either side of them had been hit by the cunning thief. Armed with a shotgun and a 9mm Glock, he was sure the burglar would hit him soon. "Let him come," the homeowner said, "I have a very special surprise for him." Confident of his ability to stop this thief, he waited almost a week. Mysteriously, his home was hit...the burglar had come. In a later interview, the homeowner said, scratching his head, "I stayed up all night, did not fall asleep and somehow this guy got past me. I didn't hear a thing and when sunrise came, noticed a few things were missing and some dog food on the floor by the dish." All doors and window were locked...I have no clue as to how he got in!"

Well, today, the thief was caught in a bathroom in his latest victim's home. Police were called and arrested the troublesome thief. In a later interview, the suspect denied everything and asked for an attorney. Searches of the thief's residence turned up much of the stolen merchandise, numerous towels, clothing, pet toys, and an odd assortment of stuffed animals, mainly mice and such. When asked by police how he had gained entrance to the homes, again, the burglar said nothing as he was advised by his attorney not to answer, but investigators noticed a lot of dryer lint clinging to his fur!!!

Rest easily tonight citizens!

      Hello Ghost and welcome to my humble site. I recall seeing your cat when I read your article on building a survival cabin! Cats sure are funny critters. The cat I had before my current Livvy, loved fried chicken and whenever we made it, she would come running from whenever. Specks just went crazy over it! She would sit by our table sit back on her hind legs and sit with her paws dangling in the air. She looked just like a big prairie dog! It was so funny! Like you, I never had a camera ready to capture that, or she was just too fast.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my hub. Take care! :)

      I think our Gato kitten may be related to your burglar. He loves to do that same thing, strike that "hands up" pose, ready to whack with either paw. Except he's really long and lean, half (or so) Siamese, etc.

      I've written Hubs about him but can't catch that pose--he's just too quick, and my cheap digital camera has that delay thingie. Maybe when our ship comes in and I can upgrade to a Canon PowerShot....:)

      Voted up, funny, and beautiful!

      ROFLOL! Thanks for the comment and giving me another chuckle! That little cat sure looks like a hardened criminal doesn't he? I am glad your PJs will get some relief from the arsenal you were carrying to bed! Be safe and rest easy, unless our kitten friend has siblings! LOL

      Gosh, what a relief! I was tucking in every night with three switchblades and a tanto knife.. it really did a number on my PJs. At long last, we can all sleep in peace.

      Greetings Peggy! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comment. I appreciate it. When I saw that picture, I just had to write about it! LOL It is so funny! I just can't even imagine what comes in those dog and cat doors! Some of the larger breeds can sure let some huge critters in your home! Someday, a pet owner may find a zoo full of animals in their house that came in through the pet door. Guess you better make sure enough food is out for the pet party! I know squirrels and raccoons are notorious for getting in even very small holes. If you live in the country, I guess pigs, goats and who knows what could end up taking residence in your kitchen!

      Thank you for the welcome AND for posting a comment! Have a great day!!!

      Dryer lint??? Oh no, you solved the case of how a lot of "creatures" get into homes with this one. I think we should seal our dryer vents off except when in use. Great read.
