Last Wednesday, a suspected car thief threatened to jump out of a third-story window. The police have tired to talk him out of it for three hours, with no luck. During the ongoing negotiation, the man’s family members showed up, along with his cat.

The cops even let him see the cat before taking him to jail.

The cat was brought to the negotiators, and according to SF Gate, it did the trick. “Using his pet, hostage negotiators were able to persuade him to go back inside the building, come down the stairs and surrender without incident.”
