That night, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. A family ate fish for dinner, just as they did several times a week. But this time, the family cat could be tantalized no longer. Just a few years old, the Birman waited until his human turned his back, then snatched the fish and dashed off through the house. His owners took off after him.

They found him by following the munching noises, says Carol List, the New Jersey-based breeder who sold the feline thief. “When they found him, he had devoured the entire fish.”

Birmans can act so silly, but that’s part of their charm.
