Shoppers have been asked to stop feeding a “celebrity” cat who apparently turns “vile” when her proprietors try to keep her at home.

Minnie the tabby has worked out she gets treats if she hangs around the Co-op in Netherfield, Nottinghamshire.

She even injured herself jumping out of a window so she could get back there when her owneds locked her in.

Her fans include the leader of the borough council, who stroked and fussed her on a visit to Netherfield.

‘She tricks everyone’

But owner Andrea Blower said Minnie has a different side to her.

“She tricks everyone into feeling sorry for her, ” said Ms Blower.

“When we go and see her at the Co-op she’s the nicest cat ever, but as soon as we get her home she’s merely vile.

“I think it’s because we’ve tried to lock her in so many times.”
