Coventry Cat Shaver
A number of cats have been partially shaved since 2021.
The latest victim, six-year-old Tallulah, is the first in more than a year.
Her owner Bonnie Towe, who lives in the suburb of Radford, said she noticed the bald patch when her daughter picked up the beloved pet.
‘It had been done quite carefully as well, as her stomach didn’t look sore or cut.’

Our NY Post newspaper is our favorite, they tell the real news!"Gwin told the San Fransisco Chronicle that the woman, identified as “Cora,” had been behaving belligerently just before he turned the hose on her. He claimed she turned his trash cans upside down, was spitting on him and verbally berating him.
Despite her frequently hostile behavior, Gwin said he had a soft spot for the woman and had let her sleep in the entryway of his gallery for multiple days. He had called social services and police in an effort to get her help, but found they let her back out after several days and she returned."

Fed-up San Francisco businesses vow to stop paying taxes over homeless problemAugust 29, 2022
Businesses in one of the trendiest sections of San Francisco are threatening to withhold tax payments unless the city takes action in removing homeless people from the area, claiming that their presence has hurt their bottom line.
The Castro Merchants Association, an umbrella group representing some local 125 businesses in the Castro District, wrote a letter to city officials earlier this month outlining their demands.
“We’re just seeing constant vandalism, constant drug use in public, people passed out on the sidewalk, people having psychotic breakdowns, and it’s just not something a small-business owner should have to deal with,” [a local gym owner] said.
Terrance Alan, the owner of Cafe Flore and Flore Dispensary, [said] that his businesses’ windows have been smashed 11 times and that several homeless people have been living on the streets for more than a decade.
“Every day we wake up and have to help people on the street,” Alan said.
“We have to clean up feces on the street. We have to clear our people from doorways, so we can open our businesses.”
“It’s not fair,” said Alan.
Woman finds 'doppelgänger' on social media before killing her to stage own death
The mutilated body of a woman was found in a Mercedes Benz in a residential part of Ingolstadt in Germany, but the woman initially thought to be the victim turned out to be the killer, police say
Initially, police believed the body belonged to Sharaban K, whose surname is withheld in line with Germany privacy laws, a beautician with Iraqi ancestry.
But after DNA testing they found that Sharaban was in fact not the victim, but that Algerian beauty blogger Khadidja O was the woman brutally butchered and posed in the front seat of her car in a residential part of the Bavarian city.
The women looked "strikingly alike" both with straight jet-black hair, similar complexions and heavy makeup on their face, cops told local media.
This Wisconsin woman has been arrested and charged with murdering and dismembering a male acquaintance. I wonder what she did to warrant the third criminal charge - for sexual assault ...

José Luis Callisaya Diaz attempted to escape from Chonchocoro, a maximum security prison in Bolivia, earlier this month by wrapping himself in sheepskin and crawling through the grassland surrounding the jail.
The inmate used his fleece coat to sneak past security and attempted to break through one of the prison’s external walls on February 4.
Despite his sneaky attempts, security noticed Diaz, who is serving 15 years for murder, was not in his cell.
Yes. I spent many years in my early career out on the road investigating insurance claims, mainly burglary.H
He probably knocked on the door and waited until he heard them at the other side.
Someone I knew years ago had a partner who'd do that. He and a mate would stride into Currys or some other electrical retailer wearing brown 'workman' coats and walk out with an expensive TV. As they looked like delivery men and there was no CCTV in the 1970s they got away with it many times.I often attended cases where the neighbours had spoken to the burglars without realising. If you walk away from a house confidently, with a TV under your arm, and smile and say hello to the neighbours, they will assume that you are entitled to be taking the TV. (And if you're wearing overalls or hi viz and have a white van, you can steal almost anything.)
I never answer the door even in daytime (unless I'm expecting a parcel, or if I looked out and saw a police car), because there is simply no need to otherwise.Yes. I spent many years in my early career out on the road investigating insurance claims, mainly burglary.
Every day, customers would "explain" to me how the burglars "must have known we were out" because the car was not on the drive, or the lights were not on, or... etc., and how they had now decided to leave the lights on on a timer, leave the TV on when they were out, etc.
I always told them, if I wanted to know if you were in, I would knock on your door. If you opened the door, I could easily make an excuse. "Is this 14 Smith Street?" "No, this is Smith Avenue." "Sorry."
Crime isn't complicated, because most victims are unsuspecting.

A lot of older people still seem to have this inherent trait of trust in people, even after all the stories we hear of them being robbed in their homes by someone that they have let in.
Yes, that was my point really.Also, OAPs are from a generation accustomed to “deference to authority”,
A close call.
A prospective first-time buyer said he nearly bought a house which was being listed for sale fraudulently on property website Zoopla.
Max Holland had an offer accepted on a home in Cambridge in June 2020, but then police rang to tell him the house was not for sale by the real owner.
Last month, tenant Andrew Smith was jailed for his part in the fraud connected to the home in Argyle Street.
A Zoopla spokesperson said it had "a robust system of vetting and checks".
A joint BBC Radio 4 You and Yours and BBC Look East investigation has discovered fake estate agents had been invented and posted their listings on Zoopla.
Mr Holland said he had been house-hunting and saving for a deposit when he spotted a property that "seemed like a pretty good deal".
Using a form on the site, he got in touch with the agent, called Smith and Jones Estate Agents, who replied saying it had been sold - but offered him the details of a similar terraced house nearby which was "even nicer", he said. ...
Today I learned that McDonald's has a rewards program! So there's some good news today.Amari Bente Hendricks, 24, was booked into the Seminole County Jail on Feb. 16 on several charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, improper exhibit of a firearm, battery causing bodily harm, and resisting an officer, the report said.
The McDonald's employee told an officer with the Altamonte Springs Police Department that the woman was mad that no one asked if she was using the fast-food restaurant's rewards program and because of that, she thought she was entitled to a free cookie, according to the arrest affidavit.
When the employee got to the window, Hendricks was allegedly yelling and acting irate. The woman was eventually given a free cookie, and continued to argue with the employee, the report said.
