Woman irked by 'cat caller'
A local woman filed a police report to document what she considered harassment by a stranger apparently seeking his cat.
The 43-year-old woman, who works as a secretary, told police a man began calling and texting her July 21 about a cat he believes she acquired from his previous landlord.
He also emailed the woman's employer about the cat, police reported.
The woman "is not in possession of the cat and has never had that cat and does not know" the caller, the report said. Although the cat seeker stopped calling at her request, the woman wanted a record made.
