Thinking about it, we haven’t heard the term ‘cat burglar’ in a long time. Rectifying that for us today, is the story of Dusty the cat. Also known by his alias ‘Klepto the Cat,’ Dusty is a first rate nuisance in his neighborhood. At last count, roughly 600 items were stolen and he’ll take anything that’s not bolted to the floor.

We’re serious. This cat has stolen towels, gloves, shoes, socks, little toys and more. His record number of steals in a single night is a staggering eleven items. To be sure, nobody in their right mind is going to condone criminality. But the thought of a cat bouncing and pouncing upon some rooftops with elegance and grace as he steals from sleeping suburbanites, is an amusing picture for the mind’s eye at least.
