How to Use Your Cat to Hack Your Neighbor’s Wi-Fi | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it

Late last month, a Siamese cat named Coco went wandering in his suburban Washington, DC neighborhood. He spent three hours exploring nearby backyards. He killed a mouse, whose carcass he thoughtfully brought home to his octogenarian owner, Nancy.
