Men in Hamilton, New Zealand, guard your undies: there’s a cat burglar on the loose!
Brigit the Tonkinese cat–or should we call her Ol’ Sticky Paws?–gifts mom Sarah Nathan with men’s underwear and socks on a nightly basis.
Wanting to return the garments to their rightful owners, Ms. Nathan posted this picture on Facebook, in hopes that the intimates would be claimed.
“Now it’s getting silly. This is Brigit’s haul from the last two months. Every morning we wake up to more. I’ve put notes in every letterbox in the street. Someone must be missing this stuff,” she wrote on the Facebook post.
While Brigit has been known to swipe other types of garments–she even brought home a hockey shin once when they lived in their old home–it seems she’s now in the market for male unmentionables.
“It’s all men’s. It’s really, really weird. She’s got really specific taste,” said Nathan.
They assume that the stealthy kitty is snagging her loot from a neighbor’s clothesline.
Now on the verge of a move (and undoubtedly, not wanting to schlep the stolen haul), Ms. Nathan is frantically searching for the man (or men) who’s missing the garments.
Hopefully, the press will help. Although now that their skivvies are all over social media, perhaps the owners will be too embarrassed to claim them, feeling like they’ve “aired their dirty laundry.”
But that’s silly; everything that Brigit has stolen has been clean.
