Meet Theo The Half-Siamese Moggy That Is An Accomplished Cat Burglar!

Theo the thieving cat
Paul Edwards and his girlfriend Rachel Drouet first realized that their beloved moggy Theo, a 3-year-old Siamese cross, had a bit of a kleptomania problem when they started noticing cat toys around the house that they knew they had not purchased themselves.

It started with cat toys, but before long all manner of objects started turning up in their abode, including fluffy pens, a phone charger, gardening gloves, a packet of crisps, some children’s artwork and a clown glove puppet! They realized that their cat had been somehow getting into their neighbors homes and pilfering their property!

Edwards said: “Theo started letting himself in through our near neighbors’ cat flap to play with their cat. But then we realized it had turned from innocent visits to him bringing cat toys home with him.”

Luckily for the couple, who live in Ipswich, UK, their neighbors have been very understanding about their light-pawed-pussy’s cat burgling tendencies and rather than treat them like social pariahs they have seen the funny side of it all. Edwards and Drouet have since been doing what they can to return the items back to their original owners!

Drouet said: “He has become a bit of a neighborhood celebrity for all the wrong reasons. We live in hope that one day he might bring back something useful.” Like some really valuable diamonds perhaps?
