Police break up cat party
Sometimes the way a news story is presented makes it special. The Reykjavik Grapevine is a a master of that sort of thing. Residents of Su?urnes, Iceland, called police on Sunday after they observed several cats going in and out a window of an unoccupied house. Police arrived at the scene and, entering the house, found no people there. However, two to three cats the exact number is still unclear were allegedly occupying the house. According to police reports, the cats were snuggling on a couch that had been left behind by the previous residents. Officers on the scene sprang into action, immediately evicting the cats from the house. They then ensured that all doors and windows into the house were securely closed and locked, in the hopes of preventing an incident of this sort from ever happening again.
