15/12/2014: Stray russian cat enjoys US$1000 fish feast

A stray cat got its paws on a gourmet feast courtesy of an airport delicatessen, after managing to get inside the fish counter, the BBC reports.

  The tabby was filmed by staff at Vladivostok airport, in eastern Russia, helping itself to marine delicacies including squid and dried octopus. The cat was seen scrabbling at packaging and happily munching away on the contents.

It was a costly break-in for the store's owner, who had to bin the entire contents of the fish counter, worth about 60,000 roubles (US$1000; UK£660). Nobody knows how the cat managed to get into the store, although according to airport staff it's a local stray and sometimes wanders into the airport.

But it seems the cat is now a minor celebrity, with "fans" lining up to visit the scene of the crime. 

"Our staff practically can't work because of the flow of fans,” says Irina Kuzmina, the shop's owner. 

"From the arrival hall, people come directly to us with questions about the cat. But they don't buy anything, they only ask questions.” 

And some members of the public are concerned about the moggie's fate, because it hasn't been seen since being busted mid-meal. The airport has received letters from dozens of concerned people offering the animal a home.
