A cat in Ratnapura is wanted for swallowing jewellery worth thousands of rupees after it entered several houses uninvited and swallowed valuable rings and pendants lying around, police sources in Colombo quoted residents as saying.Maybe the JHU should just bring an Animal Disciplinary Act. Otherwise these cats nowadays..
Residents reported their missing items to the police early last week but were unable to identify the suspect.
However when contacted the Ratnapura police said they have some complaints of jewellery being missing but could not confirm an involvement of a cat.
The brown street cat, who had been roaming in the neighbourhood for over a month, was spotted swallowing the jewellery by a gardener who immediately narrated the incident to the house owners. The cat which carried out its crime in another house the following day was immediately caught red handed, swallowing a gold earring by three people who had been following the animal, but escaped unharmed when the men tried to grab it.
The hungry cat has not been spotted in the neighborhood since then. [link]
