Cat in vandalism scandal

Whilst wondering just how desperate for news the Adver (and me, for that matter) must be to be publishing a story about a cat pawing paint over someone’s carpet, I also can’t help thinking that any other person, having fallen asleep with their front door open, would just be grateful that nothing worse had happened (such as a burglar walking in), rather than complaining that neither their insurers nor the council would pay for the damage. The lady should just paws for thought and consider how lucky she was that things didn’t turn out far more serious.
