Former Wrestler Stops Men Trying to Steal Cats


Cats may be quick on their feet for the most part, but they can still be victims of “catnapping.” Luckily, a special someone was looking out for some special felines in that situation: two kitties from a New Jersey animal shelter were spared when a former wrestler stops men trying to steal cats!

Two burglars had grabbed the two felines from the SAVE animal shelter in Princeton and tried escaping through the woods. They attempted to flee to their getaway car that was driven by another teenager (an accomplice) before a former wrestler caught them. It turns out that the wrestler is also a long-time volunteer at the shelter, and seeing the burglary, he ran after the duo and ended up catching one of them.

“Fortunately this wonderful volunteer of ours pinned one of these guys down and said, ‘Give me back that kitten, I know you’re trying to steal it,'” SAVE’s Executive Director Piper Burrows said. “The volunteer made this young man call his friend who was running through the woods at this point with the other kitten and managed to get both of them here.”

According to WPVI-TV, the two burglars’ names are John Moore and Hamza Cheema, both of whom are 19 years old. Moore and Cheema have both been charged with theft and burglary. The getaway driver, Corey Thompson, who is also 19, ended up turning himself in to authorities. Thompson was charged with the conspiracy to commit theft as well as hindering apprehension.

The two cats are now safe and sound – one of them was even adopted after the attempted catnapping. The other cat, a golden-haired feline named Casino, is still in need of a good, loving home.
