When Ryan Bishop decided to break into the home of Timothy Smith and his fiancé, he decided to bring his cat, named Spaghetti, along with him. That way he could legitimately call himself a cat burglar.

Ryan and his cat Spaghetti made themselves coffee and ate some cupcakes before hiding in the crawl space of the home when Timothy and his fiancé returned. Timothy spotted the cat and called police, who soon tracked down Ryan in the crawl space as well.

So the lesson is clear. Even if you commit a crime with your cat, you’ll go to jail but your cat will remain free.
