This Nanny Stole A Family's Aging Cat To Rescue Him From "The Needle"

Here's a brave and caring woman, Rebecca Katz, who couldn't let the family she nannied for euthanize their aging cat. Katz says she heard her employers threatened the 15-year-old Tabby cat named Tigger with "the needle" every other day. 

It got to a point where Katz was afraid to come into work and finding out Tigger was gone. "For a few years, I've been crying because I didn't know that the cat would be there the next day," said Katz.

She offered to take the senior cat and give him the proper care he needs, but the family refused. 

So she did what she felt she had to do -- steal Tigger.
