Mr McCatipus is a Stalker

He calls himself Mark McCatipus. His real name is Mark Revill. He’s on Facebook. He composes feline-inspired music. He is obsessive about Keira Knightley who lives in Islington, London. Mr McCatipus lives nearby. He drew a large chalk arrow on the pavement pointing at the actress’s house.

“He was in the area and saw her and that’s how he found out where she lives” (counsel for Mr Catipus).

His obsession with the actress manifested itself in some weird ways.

On one occasion he went to Ms Knightley’s home and made cat meow sounds through her letterbox. Now, that is genuinely a bit odd. Knightley’s husband, the former keyboard player in the Klaxons, chased him down the street to try and confront him about his strange behaviour. There are no reports that he managed to catch up.

He has also persistently hand delivered letters to Ms Knightley’s address. He has also sent her pictures of cats and a USB memory stick containing his cat music.

The famous actress is apprehensive and uncomfortable. They were in court recently. Revill says he loves the actress. He says he has approached her to promote his music.

The criminal trial took place in the Highbury Corner Magistrates’ court. Revill admitted one charge of stalking. The magistrate, David Flinter, ordered medical reports on the defendant’s mental health and will then decide his sentence on December 1st 2016.

Not all cat loving men are as obsessive as Revill. I don’t know if Keira Knightley is a cat owner but I guess Revill thinks she is.

  1. As an uncivilized colonial we had a case in Santa Fe I believe where a woman dealing with a long standing stalker seen him in a side window. she went out the back door and shot him. No charges were filed. I had some dumb woman out my back window earlier this year. You have to understand how far she would have to trespass to get to my back window. She was for reasons I do not understand totally convinced I had her dog in my home. Something that would simply never happen here. She then refused to get off my porch steps I think she was looking for a way to barge in. Again convinced I had her dog. I told her in no uncertain terms and with several decisive 4 letter words to get off my property. I reported her to the police since she told me where she lives. Which was a fair piece down the road. People are nuts. Stalking laws are better but still need to be beefed up. People who have no regard for trespassing onto someone else’s home or land have issues and bear watching.

  2. I consider all stalkers to be dangerous, especially when their advances are rejected. I expect that he has knowledge that she is a cat lover and is using that to lure her. She needs a security system in place and a firm restraining order.

    • Yes, Dee I thought the same. I could not find anything online that told me she liked and looked after a cat but it seems likely. The guy is a bit mad.
