Arrest after Instagram cat Mr Muk stolen from Islington

A north London cat with its own Instagram page has been reunited with its owner after police arrested a man on suspicion of stealing the pet.

The Siberian Forest cat, called Mr Muk, went missing from Petherton Road in Islington two months ago.

Police issued an appeal to find a suspect allegedly seen picking up Mr Muk before boarding a train at Canonbury station.

A 22-year-old man was arrested at 23:50 BST on Tuesday, police said.

He is in custody at a north London police station.

Izabela Mnich, 34, who runs Mr Muk's dedicated Instagram account , said she was "relieved" to be reunited with her nine-year-old cat.

She said she felt like her life had been stolen from her when Mr Muk went missing, and that although it was not as serious as a child being kidnapped, she felt "similar" emotions.

"He was so happy to see his favourite food," she added. "He's eaten a lot today."

At the time of the appeal, the Metropolitan Police's PC Jade Woodley said: "Theft is theft and taking someone's pet because you like the look of them or consider them high value is a criminal offence."
