Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

This is rare. Singapura cats are rare. A cat calling the police is rare. The latter is even rarer than the former. It may be unique. The Singapura is the world’s smallest non-miniature cat and it is a pedigree, “purebred” cat. It is meant to have come from the drains of Singapore but Sarah Hartwell never saw one when she visited ;).

In the UK, you telephone the police by dialling 999. We know how cats do respond to certain sounds. Some excite them, some frighten them.

In this instance, the kitten in question became excited when the phone rang. He jumped around and knocked into the receiver. The cat’s caretaker, who was out, has guessed that his cat knocked the receiver when someone called. As the call was not answered the rigging stopped. He then jumped up and down on the buttons and by chance jumped on 9 three times.  He must have knocked the receiver over before dialling (or it was on speakers) and then heard the police….!  He freaked out ;). Believe this?!

The police promptly turned up at the owner’s apartment. They had to break into the flat because only the cats were in at the time. I am surprised the cats didn’t respond to the door bell and open door! We know what cats are like with doors  – fridge doors and kitchen doors, you name it, a lot of them can open it.

I can see the scene: the police scratching their heads trying to figure out what had happened having discovered two kittens at home and no one else. I guess the owner had some explaining to do.

This happened in Kilburn, London, UK. The cats’ caretaker (there are two Singapuras) is Mr Cocksedge.

  1. Funny! I can see how that could happen.

    Damon, the hoarder is always walking on my answering machine and turns off the ringer and changes my preferred language to Spanish or French just by stepping on the buttons.

    • ha ha – that is funny Dee.. I can just picture it suddenly talking in Spanish and you just knowing Damon had obviously passed by recently 🙂 ….too funny 🙂

      • Sometimes, I think I should have named him Demon instead of Damon (kidding).
        But, I love these kinds of articles. They lighten and brighton my day.

  2. My sister’s cellphone dials itself when it falls down into the plastic box we keep our remotes, game controllers, phones, etc. in. It had to push 79 and send to call my brother in law! Auto dialed two other numbers, but the send wasn’t pressed. I know it is just chance and she has almost all 99 auto-dial positions used, so the chances are higher that someone will get dialed, but it’s still crazy. I can see how a cat could auto dial someone.
