— -- It was almost the purr-fect crime.

A thief was caught on camera stealing a giant, inflatable Halloween cat from the front lawn of a Texas home last week.

The homeowner's surveillance footage shows the man walk up to a home in the San Antonio suburb of Laredo in the middle of the night, according to police. Video shows him turn off the fan that fills the cat with air and then crawl over the ornament until it is deflated.

The video ends with the man gathering the cat's floppy arms and legs, which are twice his size, and walking away with it.

Anyone with information on this cat-napper is asked to call police at 956-795-2800.
