"Klepto cat" stealing socks
A cat with a kleptomaniac tendency has been stealing socks from his neighbour's homes, it has been reported.

Canadian moggy Tut has been carting home a number of thieved possessions, including socks, toys and mittens, newspaper the Intelligencer has noted.

His embarrassed owners plan to showcase the cat's collection later this year and encourage their neighbours to come and reclaim the items so deftly stolen by the "cat burglar".

Owner Jim Bremner told the newspaper: "Since November he has been bringing home ... socks, mitts, stuffed toys. He brought home a toy moose that still had a price tag on it."

Perhaps Mr Bremner should visit the Yahoo! Answers site for some suggestions on containing his cat's criminal habits.

One owner explained that her cat used to steal socks until they gave her one of her own and that now she proudly carries it wherever she goes, despite it being reduced to bare threads!
