A nurse has been given for a formal warning for stealing NHS incontinence pads - for her cat.
Gillian Griffiths, 60, repeatedly plundered her hospital ward for the pads after her shifts came to an end.
A misconduct hearing was told colleagues noticed the nurse taking carrier bags full of hospital property home after shifts.
During an internal investigation Griffiths admitted she was using the pads for her pet cat who was experiencing "continence problems."
The stolen items included tea bags, plastic gloves, sauce sachets, a kettle, and incontinence pads meant for patients at Neath Port Talbot Hospital in South Wales.
She failed to appear at her Nurses and Midwifery Council misconduct hearing in Cardiff, where four charges of misconduct were found proved.
Griffiths was given a four-year caution order.
