A San Francisco woman's fur was rubbed the wrong way last week when she spotted her missing cat lounging at inside her neighbor's house.

According to police reports, the woman, who lives on the 200 block of Chenery, called the cops at 2 a.m. last week to report her neighbor for allegedly stealing her cat. The woman claims she had posted missing cat posters throughout Glen Park after her pet feline mysteriously disappeared last month.

Nobody responded to her posters, and she didn't see her pet until last Tuesday morning, when she spotted the feline sitting in her neighbor's open window. The woman tried several times to contact her neighbor, but got no

response. That only made her more suspicious that the cat had been nabbed by her neighbor.

An officer knocked on the neighbor's door to check on the cat, but nobody answered. Police contacted Animal Care and Control to follow up on the alleged cat burglary. We called both police and the ACC to find out if cat and owner were reunited,  but no word back on how this story ends.

In any event, we at least hope there are no copycats around town.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
