Man Arrested For Stealing His Own Cat!!

Filed under: Legal MattersCatFunnyCrazzzzy

A 31-year-old man in Iowa has been arrested for stealing his own cat from a shelter.

The man's cat, Smokie, had a habit of escaping, so he had the cat microchipped.

The past two times he picked Smokie up from the shelter, they didn't charge him anything.

This time, he was told he'd have to pay a $35 fine and he said he'd never been charged before.

So when the shelter employee went into the back to ask the manager, the guy grabbed his cat, put him in a carrier and left.

That's a brave move!

Later, police showed up at his door, threatening to charge him with burglary.

He is now charged with $85 for the cat theft plus the original $35.

He plan to fight the charges.

He's also given the cat to his sister because:

"I can't be getting charged with bogus, trumped up charges every time he gets out."

We guess that solves the problem. Let's hope your sister is more careful about keeping the door shut.

Good luck in court!

Microchip Implant Can Deliver Daily Dose Of Medication!

Filed under: HealthBodyMedicineScience!

Is this a glimpse of how we'll be taking all of our medications in the future?

Scientists have successfully implanted microchips in seven women with osteoporosis that emitted a dose of a bone-strengthening drug once a day without them even noticing.

The microchip, placed below the waistline, was able to deliver the drug as effectively as their otherwise "daunting" daily injection.

While more research is necessary, the study has been called "an important milestone" in medicine because many women with severe osteoporosis are prescribed a drug called teriparatid to build their bone density, but often quit it because of the tedious and painful injections.

This test involved a microchip that was able to store 20 doses of the drug, but the company behind the technology is setting its sights on testing a chip in 2014 that can hold 365 doses.

Osteoporosis is just the tip of the iceberg too. Other uses in the field of implanted medicine could include a contraceptive rod placed in the arm to release hormones preventing pregnancy AND a chip in the brain that targets the remaining cancer cells after doctors remove a brain tumor.

Pretty cool, right?

Lost Cat And Owner Reunited

Filed under: PetsAdoptionCatCrazzzzy

A man from Florida was reunited with his lost cat in Colorado!

After the cat was picked up in a neighborhood and brought to an animal shelter, he was scanned and his chip revealed his owner's information.

The craziest part of this story isn't that the cat wound up 2,000 miles from home, but that his owner had only had him for about an hour before the cat ran away!

Check out their reunion in the above video.
