NOVATO, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1Bm6coH ) reports that someone has dropped off more than 100 tuxedo cats, which are named for their distinctive black and white markings, at an animal shelter.

Marin Humane Society spokeswoman Lisa Bloch says that on Monday, a car pulled up to the Marin Humane Society in Novato, leaving behind three boxes.

Bloch tells the newspaper that inside were 24 tuxedo cats. She says it was the fourth such occurrence in the last 18 months.

The newspaper reports that all the cats, which range in age from kitten to full-grown, appeared to be in good health, with no fleas or diseases.

The person who’s responsible for leaving the cats has been caught on surveillance tape — and Bloch tells the newspaper that it appears to be the same person every time. The shelter wants to offer the person information about getting pets fixed.

 Plaintiffs' attorney John Manly, right, with co-counsel Luis Carrillo, left, talks to reporters outside Los Angeles Superior Court Friday, Nov. 21, 2014, following the settlement of litigation involving an elementary school teacher convicted of lewd conduct against his students. The Los Angeles Unified School District will pay $139 million to end all remaining litigation in the deal involving 81 students, ending a legal saga that began when Miramonte Elementary School teacher Mark Berndt was arrested in 2012 and accused of blindfolding students and feeding them his semen on cookies. Plaintiff’s lawyers had planned to present evidence suggesting the school district was aware of sexual misconduct by Berndt three decades ago but failed to act until a photo processor at a pharmacy contacted police about film Berndt dropped off that showed pictures of blindfolded children and being fed some substance.
