Glasgow woman stunned after cheeky cat nips a sealed pouch of food from neighbor’s house

A Glasgow woman was completely stunned after her cheeky cat brought home a bag of food he had pinched from a neighbor’s house.

Emma Sheerin, of King’s Park, was working from home when she heard a noise coming from her cat door on Tuesday afternoon.

The 32-year-old went to investigate – and she could hardly believe his eyes when she saw one of her three cats, Ja Rule, with a SEALED pouch of ASDA Tiger Complete in her mouth.

She began to chase the rascal around the house before pulling him out of the grip of her teeth.

Emma told the Record: “It’s ridiculous. I was just working and I could hear the cat door unlock and I could hear anyone who was having trouble getting in. I was just like, ‘What’s that noise ?!

“He usually doesn’t go out too much because he’s quite old – he and his brother just turned 10.

“But I could hear Ja Rule running up the stairs and he must have dropped him, because I could hear something click.

“I went down the hall and just saw him with this bag of food.

“I couldn’t believe it. I just screamed, ‘Where the hell did you get this ?!'”

Emma says it’s not the first time Ja Rule has broken in and entered a neighbor’s house.

In fact, she admits it’s quite common, especially when there is food.

Emma said, “He is known to go to other houses. If there is food anywhere, he will find it and he will take it.

“He’s been to my neighbors’ house before when they were making their dinner, so I have no doubt that someone probably left their door open and he just came in, helped himself and ran.

“I was worried thinking, what if someone caught him red-handed. I looked out the window for a rabid neighbor.”

After chasing Ja Rule into the living room and removing the cover from him, Emma didn’t know what to do with it.

In the end, when no one came to the door to claim the food, she decided he deserved it – but the cheeky feline had to wait until the next day.

Emma said: “I can’t leave food open anywhere because he will take it. If he finds food he needs to run and hide with it, so I was chasing him into the living room.

“He went and hid under the sofa at one point and I was like, ‘get out of here!’ And I managed to tear the cover away from him.

“But I was laughing at myself thinking, I can’t believe you went to this level. He will eat and eat until he is sick. He is not even fat, it is. just a big nibbler. “

She added, “He had the breakfast bag this morning. I didn’t want to waste it.



Ja Rule ate the bag for his breakfast

“Someone said to me, ‘if only he brought you money’ … but that would only happen if the money was covered in gravy!”

Ja Rule is not alone. Last month we unmasked Scotland’s biggest burglar, who has brought terror to the backyards of his neighbors.

Thomas – the mischievous moggy – clawed his Kilmarnock neighbors saving the line for an amazing EIGHT years, amassing hundreds of items.

The 10-year-old toerag came home with socks, tights, pants, shirts, rubber gloves, plush toys – and sometimes even buns and pita breads over the years.

The crime life of the innocent purr was only revealed after its owner exposed his incredible antics online following his latest jaunt that saw him take NINE sets of stockings in two days.
