Cat 'obsessed with gobbling socks'
Missing socks are a curse that goes hand in hand with having feet and most people never know what becomes of one half of their legwear sets.

However, one woman knows exactly where her socks go as she keeps finding her cat chomping them down.

Grace Carver, the owner of Steve the cat, makes her revelation in a letter to the Contra Costa Times, begging for advice on her sock-sucking feline.

"This problem borders on addiction," she states, noting the beastie will often place a sock in his food bowl and chew it in between bites of his meal.

"I've caught him in the laundry hamper foraging and digging in the garbage after I've thrown away a sock I caught him with. I'm stumped," Ms Carver admits.

The newspaper's pet expert reassured her that many cats go crazy for particular items, noting one feline he knows steals women's clothes from by the swimming pool!

Earlier this year, the Canadian moggy Tut, dubbed Klepto Cat, made the newspapers for stealing vast quantities of socks from nearby homes.
