The burglar who paused to feed a hungry cat and stole the family fireworks

POLICE are investigating some unusual burglaries – including one where the intruder stopped to feed a cat.

In another break-in, thieves stole a pile of jewellery before helping themselves to a couple of pints of milk and some cans of Coke from the fridge.

Detective Inspector Nigel Oliver, from the priority crime unit based in Southsea, said both incidents are unexplained.

‘Feeding a cat during a burglary is not common at all,’ he said.

‘It may have been to keep the cat in a particular part of the house.’

The burglary happened between 2pm and 9pm on Sunday, March 22, in South Parade, Southsea.

After feeding the homeowner’s pet the raider stole a box of fireworks and left.
