A cat‑napper has been caught on CCTV stealing a prized pet from outside its owner's house. Beloved family cat Max, a valuable ten-year-old Russian Blue, went missing from a flat on Lower Gilmore Place, Fountainbrige, after being put out for his evening run.

Owner Malcolm Oswald was initially convinced the cat had been eaten by a fox, until he decided to check the building's CCTV system. When he watched the footage he was shocked to see a car pull up outside the building beside his cat, before a shadowy figure of a woman emerged and wrestled Max into the back of the car.
