Looks like bonkers behaviour is not only confined to Florida. 999 is the UK's 911.


A pet owner dialled 999 - because her cat was "doing her head in" playing with a ball of string.

The female pet owner, can be heard slurring to the operator and saying her cat was playing with the ball of string and it was "doing her head in".

She stressed that it was a serious emergency because it had "been going on for two hours now".

Apparently there is a surge of 999 stupid at this time of year.
