Cat Caught Smuggling Cellphones to Russian Inmates

You’ve got to hand it to Russian prisoners; they’re a crafty bunch. 

Inmates tried using a cat to infiltrate a Russian prison colony and deliver cell phones and chargers in a recent attempt at making contact with the world outside their cells. However, the prisoners’ plans were foiled when guards espied the miscreant feline atop a fence. Upon further inspection, illicit electronics were found taped to the cat’s soft, furry underside. 

While it’s not the first time someone’s tried to use a cat for a covert mission, it seems the success rate for such efforts is markedly low.
