Cat steals 600 items in 3 years
seattlepi.com / ABC ^ | 15 Feb 2011 | Animal Planet

Meet Dusty, a slightly pear-shaped, fawn-colored house cat, whose nightly theft raids have earned him the criminal alias of “Klepto.”

His San Mateo, Calif. owners figured the cat has stolen 600 items from the neighborhood in the past three years, amassing a growing pile of loot at home, ABCNews reported.

He’s not choosy. Stolen goods include towels, stuffed animals, gloves, socks, shoes, spongy footballs. He stole a Converse sneaker and returned later for the other one, the station said. He lifted a neighbor’s bikini bottom drying outside, and came back for the top a few minutes later. He stole someone’s tighty whities.

The best part of ABCNew’s report is the caught-in-the act, night-cam footage, showing Dusty waddling home with stolen stuff dragging between his legs.

His hard-working take for one night? Eleven items.

I saw that segment and thought I would die laughing!
Thanks for the ping on it. Dusty isn’t as dusty as one would think!

This cat is bringing his human gifts. I get them occasionally, but they normally consist of rodent parts. I got a bottle cap recently however.

Sometimes I think that Miss Hissy Slashy would steal stuff for me.

But I keep her inside all the time anyway.

Good idea, even with the lost revenue.

She’s sorreeeee. Give her a tummy ru... uh, no, she’ll slash you again. Well, just scratch her head a little, but if her stubby little tail starts swishing back and forth, run.
