Via the Submitterator, Boing Boing reader Johnny Meerkat says,
A suburban cat wandered onto a city-bound train in Dublin, Ireland only to emerge at a city center station. Rail staff used CCTV to figure out which station the cat boarded at, and through Twitter, cat and owner were reunited. As a "reward," the cat was issued a rail pass.CCTV, in this case, stands for "Cat Catching TV."
Above left: Lilou, in repose. Look at her smug face. Top right, surveillance video that captured Lilou totally not paying train fare like other law-abiding citizens, and sneaking on to the platform as if she owned it. And bottom right, Lilou's new rail pass, which really does need a LOLWUT.
Who says cat-crime doesn't pay?
Full story plus larger size photos and two video reports (you'll need Real Player to view them, hahaha) at RTÉ News.
