Cops chase loose cats on Interstate 29

NORTH SIOUX CITY -- Nine lives go by in a flash on the interstate, but four Texas cats avoided a trip to the pet cemetery on Friday thanks to some cagey local officers.

Nashville Cats

Sioux City's finest -- with help from animal control officers and a Union County sheriff deputy -- practiced their cat-herding skills Friday afternoon after pulling over a woman driving on Interstate 29 with approximately 20 cats roaming her Dodge Neon.

Sioux City Police Sgt. David Bishop said Patricia Edwards, of Garland, Texas, was pulled over just as she crossed from Iowa into South Dakota, because the sheer number of uncaged cats in the car was a driving hazard."She's got so many cats she can barely see out the back of the car," Bishop said.

Things got interesting when four of the cats crawled out of the car while Edwards was standing outside the vehicle talking to police. She quickly grabbed one of the cats, but the other three made a break for it.

The chase was on.
