Unemployed Man Burgled Homes to Feed 120 Cats


A man obsessed with cats burgled dozens of homes to buy food for his feline “friends,” all 120 of them.

Demizu first kept cats in 1993 and began giving leftover food to strays in 2010. He lost his job in 2011 but continued to feed cats with money from a woman he lived with.

“The number of cats I fed gradually increased, and I ran short of cash,” he told police.

Demizu repeatedly broke into homes in Izumi during the day, through unlocked windows or by finding keys hidden outside.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
