"Don't label me" may have been what cat burglars who stole six dogs from a Humane Society animal shelter in Hawaii over the weekend were thinking during their transgression. Cops say the thieves ran off from the Kaui shelter with three mixed-breed pit bulls, two Airedale terriers, and a 2-month-old lab mix sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, the AP reports. They busted a lock on a side gate to boost their furry haul, per Hawaii News Now. The Humane Society has a $5,000 reward up for grabs for info leading to an arrest and conviction, which may be made easier thanks to a microchip implanted in the lab puppy. (This cat burglar was an actual ... cat.)
