‘Klepto’ Cat Nabs Neighbors’ Clothes in Louisiana
A cat named Admiral Galacticat has been identified as the burglar responsible for several apparel-based thefts in Metairie, Louisiana, reports New York Daily News.
The long-haired thief stole eighteen clothing items before he was caught. Owner Heather Bardi and her husband had found random clothing around their home, and subsequently caught Admiral on video.
The cat was kept strictly indoors before quarantine, but Bardi began walking him around the neighborhood, likely sparking his interest about the outside world.
Bardi confessed to her cat’s thievery online, writing “My Cat Is A Klepto” on Facebook. “All was fine and dandy until last week when suspicious items started appearing on my front porch,” she continued. “Lo and behold, it is MY CAT that is stealing SOMEONE’s clean laundry and bringing it home.”
Bardi offered to wash the clothing and have the robbed parties pick up their items. “You are more than welcome to come by and grab the bag and shame my a--hole cat if he is around.”
