Man blames cat for child pornography found on his computer

A Florida man accused of downloading child pornography is blaming his cat’s erratic keyboard mashing for the crime.

Keith Griffin was charged Wednesday with 10 counts of possession of child pornography after detectives found more than 1,000 images on his computer, the Associated Press reports. But Griffin alleges he had no knowledge of the illicit images and says his cat was behind the downloads.

Griffin told investigators that his cat had a habit of sitting on his computer’s keyboard. He said that on several occasions he came back to his computer to find that strange material had been downloaded. Police didn’t buy Griffin’s story and he is currently being held in the Martin County Jail. The cat reportedly is being cared for by a family friend.

Maybe Griffin should consider investing in some anti-kitty computer software. PawSense claims to be able to recognize and prevent cat typing.

I bet this was the same kid who blamed his dog for eating his homework. :cool:

Perhaps the cat wanted some “kiddies” as friends…

I’ve seen my cat do some strange things, but never be that organized to actually download something…1000 times.

And wouldn’t you think that even after the FIRST time the cat downloaded something, you would take steps to ensure the cat no longer had access to the computer?? Duh!

Nope…this smells worse than a litter box!

I can believe it…the cat was looking for “kitty porn”

Had to be said!:smiley:

Oh my, the possible off color jokes are innumerable.

So what <NO!>

Not going there.

Okay, One off color joke: I guess the Cat really “littered” his computer!

This guy is not just lying, he’s fe-lying! (I know, a bit of a strech)

He got caught because Ceiling Cat sees all…

“U canz not haz bad pitchurz!”

Dang, I was hoping the man was going to accuse his cat of something really wierd. The first thing that popped in my mind when I saw the thread title was, “He should have listened to Bob Barker.”

He would leave the cat in the room. When he returned, there was strange material downloaded. :rolleyes:

My thoughts exactly!
