A Richmond resident's mail service has been restored after Canada Post suspended delivery because a postal worker who went to her house was scratched by a cat.

Darlene Carlin found out that Canada Post was suspending mail delivery to her house because one of her cats took a swipe at the postal worker that delivered her mail on January 2nd.

Carlin put a weighted box in front of her mail slot to block her cats from swatting at postal workers, and is grateful to have postal service restored.

But Carlin has two cats -- one black cat, and a black-and-white cat, and no one knows which of Carlin's cats committed the crime.

"I don't think I'll ever know who the real one was that did it," Carlin told CTV News.

The postal worker, the victim of the cat's scratch, told a local newspaper that he peeked through the mail slot and saw a big fat black cat.

But 15-year-old Oreo, the black cat, isn't fessing up.
