My husband and I were watching our favorite news cast one night, CTV. When it is possible, they like to conclude the broadcast on a lighter note, which is probably part of the reason we like them so much. A story came on about a cat burglar problem that was plaguing this neighborhood. Small items were going missing, part of a swim suit, a sock, small toys, underwear. The whole neighborhood was falling victim to these crimes, with one notable exception. This house had a different problem, its lawn was becoming littered with small items, part of a swim suit, a sock, small toys, underwear. It was finally decided that they would set up a night vision camera, to see if they could catch the culprit in the act.

What followed was hilarious footage of an orange tabby cat carrying numerous pilfered items, and in some cases dragging things so large that it couldn’t walk properly. Thank you to Lloyd Robertson for the tradition of ending the news casts on a lighter note, and often with a chuckle, and to everyone else there for keeping up the tradition.
