An embarrassed cat owner is struggling to cope with his kitten's penchant for stealing pyjamas.
Mischievous moggy Tosca has become renowned for sneaking into people's houses and stealing their socks
, according to the Ealing Gazette.
Owner Dave Griffiths said this bizarre fetish began at home, but has since extended to elsewhere in the neighbourhood.
He told the newspaper: "It's getting really embarrassing now. I've knocked on neighbours' doors but nobody knows where they're coming from. I've got a carrier bag
full of them now."
This unusual habit is a break from traditional risqué behavior by cats, who occasionally make headlines for getting stuck in bizarre places.
Earlier this month, an Arizona moggy shocked residents living close to the Salt River, after getting stuck at the top of a very high cactus plant.
Fortunately, the black cat has since clambered back down to safety, three days after it was discovered.
