A Japanese man went on a year-long burglary spree, making off with a haul worth £112,000 to feed 120 cats a gourmet diet, police have said.

Mamoru Demizu, 48, is suspected of breaking into houses to steal cash and jewels on 32 separate occasions.

He told police that he stole things to come up with the money to feed scores of his feline friends, spending up to 25,000 yen (£148) a day, an officer said.

"He said he felt happiest when he rubbed his cheek against cats," the officer said.

Unemployed Demizu kept one animal at his home in Izumi city, western Japan, and about 20 in a nearby warehouse, while feeding 100 more strays that lived in the neighbourhood, the police said.

Not only is he feeding 120 cats, he's feeding 120 cats gourmet food.

He's just redistributing the wealth.

It's probably better off spent on cat food.
