Fappy:
My brothers are well trained. The humans still don't not suspect we can speak their language.

Quite right friend. We can get away with murder.

Sometimes i'll come across your avatar and will sit there for two minutes just staring...What kind of hypnosis device is this?!

Tiger Sora:
It bothered me when I saw this on reddit the way he was holding the cat. And it still bothers me.
Also just found out I can type without looking, albeit slow and with much correction.

If you practice more, you can get faster and have fewer errors.

As for the cat with the equipment, I don't think they're going to find out who was supposed to be the recipient of that gift.

The plan is working! Fear not human, everything is fine.

Should of used a gray cat, they're harder to spot in that environment.

Honestly, trying to smuggle in a saw that clearly? A cat wouldn't do that. Oh no.

I get it now. The goal wasn't to smuggle IN a saw and mobile and whatnot, that was already in place. The goal was to smuggle OUT a cat. Who would suspect a cat with these tools was a prisoner passing through the gates? I'm on to you, felines! Trying to get your brethren out of prison so you can carry on your goals of world domination, I know it!

THE CATS ARE COMING! WHY WILL NO-ONE LISTEN TO ME ANYMORE! THEY'RE COMING WITH THEIR CLAWS AND THEIR TEEEEEEETH!

Totally unexpected!

Don't they know that if they put the cat together with other diseased animals it's just going to encourage it to be diseased when it gets out?

Either way I feel sorry for the cat seeing how removing those tapes will leave its fur mess up.

And this I was taught from a master social critic!

OT: Just imagine if they trained a slightly LARGER version of a cat to do this. I believe in South America, they have those kinda creatures. I can see the headlines now:

TIGER HELPS CRIMINALS ESCAPE PRISON. GUARDS SCARED ABSOLUTELY SHITLESS

Volan:
I don't know whether to be more amused at such an elaborate and ingenious way to escape prison, or horrified at the thought of getting the tape off the cat. I'm a wuss with bandages, so I couldn't even imagine.

Still, points for the imagination.

The BBC News website has a video of them removing the tape from the cat. It doesn't look too much in distress, but they are holding it very tightly.

OT: The full story appears to be that the prisoners raised the cat themselves, so it was a normal sight to see it coming and going from the prison. I would love to know if the tool-smuggling idea was the plan from the start or whether they were sitting around stroking the cat one day and someone said, "Hey guys. I've just had an awesome idea!"

RAWR!

That would make fantastic news.

"It's tough to find out who's responsible for the action,"

If they were smart they would have followed the cat to see which prisoner it went to.

But I guess better safe than sorry, and I am speaking with the benefit of hindsight.

...Well, this is a new one for me. I'm amazed anyone managed to get the tools on the cat, have you ever tried holding those things? I wonder if the person behind this thought they could get the cat to the right person... I sure feel sorry for the guy who has to get all that stuff off...

My thoughts exactly. I saw the headline and chuckled at the sheer level of evil genius that takes, and then I thought about the poor cat. Just casually wondering around, and then BAM. Someone has stuck a bunch of random crap to it and dumped it over a wall. Beyond that is just a tad uncomfortable to think about.

Even Lex Luthor didn't do anything that diabolical to an animal* and he stole forty cakes. And that is just terrible.

*That I can think of.

That happend not in Rio de Janeiro, but in Alagoas, another state of Brazil in the northeast part of the country, and the prision was in Arapiraca city. It's a couple of hours drive from where I live.

I'm guessing the owner forgot to tell his friends what food his cat likes to eat.
Because, let's face it, what cat would rescue its owner out of the goodness of its heart?

Redlin5:
Cats make for great agents. When they fail, they'll never surrender your secrets. Ever.

The only downside is, they'll betray you for a tin of tuna and a fluffy pillow.

Mike Kayatta:

While there is zero scientific evidence ruling out the cat itself as the mastermind behind Operation Tape Saw, the prison guards saw fit to pamper it anyway, quickly sending it to an animal disease center for medical treatment.

"And eventual destruction because no one will claim it."

Sorry I just wanted to take the wind out of everyone's sails on this story.

Or a nice box. Cats love a nice box.

Roander:
I think a lot of people reading this are assuming the prisoner would keep the cat alive because they don't want to think about the other possibility. I'm glad the guards caught it when they did.

I'm surprised this hasn't occurred to more people. It was the first thing I thought of: Those guards saved that cat from getting its head smashed into concrete, having its fur and skin cut or ripped out, and then left to die.

I bet this gave the guards a moment of paws.

they should had thrown the cat like a boomerang. see:

Raggedstar:
Well, give them credit for the idea at least. Surprised the guy even got the tape on the cat in the first place 0-0

Tiger Sora:

Same picture as here? It's honestly not that bad. Mind you not IDEAL, but not that bad for people who (most likely) don't know how to restrain cats. I've seen worse. Cat isn't being strangled, legs are being restrained, and there is another person. Odds are they held the cat like that temporarily to show the body. I'm a vet tech and sometimes people think some safe and commonly used techniques and devices are cruel. It's not unusual to grab the legs (he's a bit too low and perhaps could give more support), scruff, or cup the head.

You'd know better than me.

I have two kittens and if anyone handled them like that I think I'd be murderous. I'm a total pushover though.

LordJedi86:

Yeah.
But what if the cat has an accomplice?
That could cause some

Mike Kayatta:
Currently, all 263 prisoners of Arapiraca are considered suspects in the case, though progress toward nabbing the purrpetrator has been slow. "It's tough to find out who's responsible for the action," explained a prison spokesperson soon after detaining the fluffy smuggler, "as the cat doesn't speak."

Wow. You went there. I knew it would be somewhere. That poor kitty. Sad thing is that others will probably try similar. Though from talking to a corrections officer I know, criminals do pretty ingenious things in prison.

If this was the U.S., congress would spend $40 Billion finding out who. All the time trying to distract from real issues.

How cute is that! I can see the Daily Mail now: Cat criminals in overcrowded cardboard prisons need deporting. Right now.
Why should all these tabbies and moggies of various shapes and sizes be in our British Cardboard prisons, as paid for by users of Ebay and shoe shops through out the country? These scroungers and rip off merchants so go back to their OWN countries and keep our prison boxes free for British cats.

(Might have gone massively off topic, but, well, sorry? Either way, it's probably how the Daily Mail would report it...)

TheSYLOH:
Guess the cat's out of the bag...

No, the cat IS the bag. When did Brazil become Soviet Russia...

Treblaine:

That's what I said... my friend pointed out that prison guards aren't exactly detective masterminds

Xan Krieger:
they're too smart for their own good.

The cat knows it's Miranda Rights better then others. I'm more dog than cat, but this feline's all right.
