One of the four purebred Bengal cats that were stolen from the farm Nátthagi in Ölfus, South Iceland, the day before yesterday managed to escape the thief and was found by his owner, Ólafur Sturla Njálsson, yesterday evening. It was the male cat Kiss Me.
Ólafur noticed a large pile of faeces in the leather sofa in the shed where the cats had been kept. A cat had also peed on the floor and gnawed a hole in the corner of a bag filled with cat food, ruv.is reports.
After searching for a while, Ólafur located Kiss Me under the sofa. The cat was defensive but Ólafur eventually managed to put it in a cage.
Ólafur said there have been no clues about the whereabouts of the other cats but a neighbor said he had noticed a car drive around the countryside and stop by his farm every now and then.
However, Ólafur told RÚV yesterday that the leopard-pattern trousers the thief had left behind in his driveway had looked familiar.
Ólafur added that the three cats the thief got away with aren’t worth much as both female cats are infertile and the male cat Prins has proven poor for breeding.
