Cat Burglar Cleans Up Neighbourhood

Meet Norris.

Norris is a true cat burglar. And his secret was just discovered by his somewhat perplexed owners, Sophie and Richard Windsor of Bedminster, Bristol (UK) when they finally figured out that the 2 year old tabby was to blame for the increasing pile of items that were appearing in their home.

Like many cats, Norris was happy to raid any food bowl in the local vicinity and was known to bring back the odd piece of sausage from a neighbour’s table now and again.

But he upped his game when he took to liberating underwear and other clothes. Soon his owners came to find a pile of washing line steals every morning. The night time missions have come to be well known by Norris’s neighbours and his owners have learnt to brazen it out with their friends and simply return as many items as they can!

I have heard of this before. I live near Wellington in New Zealand. I was speaking with someone recently about why there were often small pieces of clothing on their driveway. I was told that their cat would bring them back from night time forays and since they didn’t always know who the items belonged to they put them on the drive so people could see. The cat was now shut in at night which seemed to have stopped him. I wonder why cats do this? Does anyone know?
