Barney the Cat vs. The Bumbling Burglar!

We all know that cats are expert hunters, climbers and escapologists, but did you know that they are secretly superheroes as well?

Meet Barney, who, in the aid of his mom K, revealed his super heroic paw-ers and put them to work!

I thinks I iz stuck.
A few years back, K was paid an unwelcome visit. Her house was broken into, and many items were stolen. One of those items was a digital camera. As one might imagine, she assumed that all of her precious belongings were lost forever.

That is, until she received a phone call from the police. To her surprise, they had found a camera, similar to the description of the one that she had lost, being sold on the black market. The thief had been smart enough to throw away the memory stick, but foolish enough to leave the hard drive intact and full of photos.

One of the photos was of…you guessed it…

Meow! Nice to meet mew!
…our hero Barney!

The police had blown up the photo of our furry hero, zoomed in on the 24 Pet Watch tag on his collar, and managed to read the most of his identification numbers. They forwarded these numbers to Pet Watch, and after conducting a North American-wide search, they were able to narrow down the possible cat/camera owner to three people.

After giving a short description of the photos on the hard drive, K was soon able to prove that she was indeed the owner of the camera, and of course, the amazing cat.

Let's hear it for Barney! Though he may be tubby and lazy, he's got the hero's blood running through his veins!

Do you have an amazing story about a cat who performed a heroic act? If so, we’d love to hear it! Meow!

Shh, don't tell anyonez about my paw-ers, ok??

(A special thanks to family friend K for sharing her special story with us!)
