Cat burglar steals from neighbors
U.K. tabby brings purloined items home to gloat.
Norris seems innocent enough during the day. But by night, this kitty becomes a klepto.
The 2-year-old U.K. tabby is making a name for himself by snagging anything he can get his paws on from his neighbors’ houses and proudly bringing it home to his owners.
The precocious feline has snatched a wide variety of neighborhood loot, including a bath mat, laundry, cleaning supplies and pizza, to name a few.
“He brings his stolen items in and then meows and meows to announce he is back so we will go and see what he has brought in,” owner Richard Windsor said.
But now, Windsor and his wife, Sophie, are cracking down on Norris' bad habit. The couple sent a letter to their neighbors apologizing and telling them to let them know if something goes missing.
“Fortunately, all our neighbors have been very good-natured about it and think it is funny. At least now they know where to come if something disappears mysteriously,” he said.
