Klepto Kitty

I caught the entertaining story below about a kleptomaniac cat when one of his owners was interviewed on David Letterman last week and then stumbled across it today on AOL News under their 'Weird' section:

A kleptomaniac cat has given back his stolen loot in a reverse neighborhood garage sale.

The owners of Dusty, a Siamese cat, displayed hundreds of items on tables in front of their Northern California home with hopes that the owners would claim their goods, ABC7-TV reported.

Neighbors were invited to browse through the belongings and take what was theirs. And all the while, Dusty monitored the event as if he were making a mental note of which possessions were retrieved.

"He just sat there and was watching this whole thing from under one of the bushes," owner Jean Chu told AOL News. "He's just a total character."

The items included balls, towels, car wash mitts, gloves, shirts, bathing suits and other miscellaneous clothing. Chu estimates that Dusty -- who has been dubbed "Klepto Kitty" -- has stolen more than 500 items over the years.


  1. Hahahahaha! My friend in California just told me about this guy and I was going to look him up on Youtube but here he is! What a funny fella he is - and I'm glad the neighbors are so understanding. :)

  2. I was amazed by how much 'stuff' was just lying around in that neighborhood for him to steal!
