Texas Officer Snares Cat Burglar

By Wyatt Earp | November 18, 2009

Sebastian sent this to me with the comment, “I’m going to guess this guy is going to have a hard time living this one down. The jokes practically write themselves.” I have to agree. Read on:

TAYLOR, Texas – A black cat showed affection by crawling up and down a Texas police officer in a friendly display captured on the patrol car’s dashcam. Taylor police Officer Keith Urban was seen being patient with the cat, whose image was captured during a recent traffic stop, then finally gently booting the kitty away.

The Taylor Daily Press reported Urban had pulled over an SUV in the driveway of a farm lot. The video shows the cat scampering up and down on Urban, making its way to the officer’s shoulders.

Police Chief Jeff Straub said Urban never mentioned the feline encounter until he became concerned that the cat might have been injured when they parted ways. (H/T – !)

That’s awesome! The video is below the fold:

    Awww! How cute! I would have tried to find the owner to see if I could take him home. :)

    This would have never happened to a white cat.

    The feline worlds equivalent to Al Sharpton will be protesting at that precinct now:)

    Maybe the police department should re-think their catnip-fiber based uniform policy.

    Damn! Fenway beat me to it! I was going to say “catnip-based cologne.”
