This is a short story but interesting. You know how cats have superb hearing. And they are inquisitive and curious. The ever alert domestic cat will pick up very slight sounds and look towards the sound and even advance towards it to investigate. It is totally instinctive and all to do with survival.
In November, in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA the police were in pursuit of a fugitive, Jonathan Michael Steffy.
They had tracked him to a backyard. He fled. A police officer noticed a black cat staring (as cats do) at a shed. The officer wisely responded by checking the inside of the shed but no one was inside.
The cat continued to stare at a shed – but it was a different shed and the officer realised this.
The officer opened the other shed and lo and behold there was Jonathan, the 23-year-old fugitive.
The police were thankful for the assistance. They said that they are thankful for help “whether human or feline..”. Good, I like that.
Nice story. I like it when cats do something like this particularly as the police and cats are often not great bedfellows. For me, police officers are more inclined to favour dogs.
