The newest in dumb excuses: the cat defense.

You've heard the one about the dog eating the homework, now hear about the cat who downloaded the kiddie porn.

Keyboard Cat

Keith Griffin was charged Wednesday with 10 counts of possession of child porn after over 1,000 illegal images were found on his computer, and he claims it's all the work of his kitty.

The 48-year-old Jensen Beach, Fla., man told cops he would leave his computer on and the cat would jump on the keyboard and just like that, the images would appear.

Cops weren't buying Griffin's tale, and busted him in his home. He's being held in Martin County Jail on $250,000 bail, according to tcpalm.com.

Could it all be a sinister plot from a vindictive feline? Maybe. After all, cats have been known to play a smooth tune on a keyboard before. But for now, cops have ruled the kitty out as a suspect and he is resting comfortably with one of Griffin's relatives.
