Man Dials 999 After Finding Cat In Kitchen
Gloucestershire police have revealed a man dialled 999 for help to remove a cat that had wandered into his house.The bizarre request was one of more than 4,000 inappropriate emergency calls received by the force this year alone.The man in question was politely advised by the officer who answered the phone to simply shoo the cat out of the back door. In another call, police could hear only shouting in the background. But when officers arrived at the scene they discovered it was merely an argument between a husband and wife over whose turn it was to do the washing up.
