Paws for thought in Brazillian jail as taped up cat smuggles escape tools in.

It's not a Trojan Horse, it's not a dolphin with a limpet mine attached to its back and it's not a rat with a lighted stick of dynamite taped onto its back running into its own oblivion. No, it's cat, coolly walking into a prison, through the main gate, with hacksaw blades, a mobile phone and other contraband held on with clear sticky tape. A break-out Kit-e-Kat (say that in mock Portuspanish and it kind of works)

Those who taped the various things into position around the body, made a glaring error. Literally: they chose a white cat. In the darkness of night, that stood out like a, well, white cat in a dark night. And the things taped to its body were clearly visible through the transparent tape.

The cat, ownership unknown and it's not telling, carried a cell phone, headset, spare batteries and a memory card, several hacksaw blades and drill bits.

A photo issued by the Superintendent General of Prison Administration shows the cat before the tape was removed. It's now in a moggie rescue centre being cared for, presumably planning its own escape.
