This stray cat strutted up to a deli in Russia's Vladivostok International Airport and got right to work—chowing down on dried octopus, squid, and whatever other fine fare the shop's owner had set out for his human customers, the BBC reports. The cat, apparently an airport regular, didn't actually consume $1,000 worth of fish, but that's what the cost to the entire fish display was after the owner (who has no clue how the cat got in there) had to throw the entire inventory out. The well-fed kitty's now a local celebrity and in high demand to be adopted, but it's apparently sleeping off its meal somewhere: It hasn't been seen since. (More Russia stories.)
