Cats are weird...

A nocturnal "cat burglar" has been stealing dozens of socks and men's underwear in New Zealand.

In two months, six-year-old Tonkinese cat Brigit from Hamilton city brought back 11 pairs of underpants and more than 50 socks.

Her owner, Sarah Nathan, has documented her feline's strange obsession on a widely shared Facebook post.

"Now it's getting silly. Someone must be missing this stuff," she said in a post shared close to 500 times.

Ms Nathan told the BBC that the trouble first began when she started discovering "odd pieces" of underwear among her washing.

"They didn't belong to anyone in the house and one day Brigit walked into our lounge carrying a sock like a kitten," she said, adding that Brigit's unlucky victims were probably a nearby flat "full of blokes".

The family said it has also started distributing street flyers.

"Keeping cats indoors isn't common in New Zealand," said Ms Nathan.

"Brigit doesn't hunt birds or wildlife so it seems unnecessary and our neighbours have been very good natured about it.

"But we are moving to the country soon so hopefully she will run out of opportunity!"

Not an isolated incident, my coworker was at her neighbours house for dinner one night and the neighbour's cat came home dragging a half cooked steak he had pinched off someone's bbq!

My old cat came home with a baby rabbit once, it was luckily unharmed and I got it off him and returned it to the owner across the road whose bunny had recently had kits!

One of my cats (not sure which one) let me two little bird eggs on the doormat once, totally whole and intact. Poor birdies though Sad

lol Toby used to do this, but with Christmas "stuffies" (stuffed Christmas characters like Rudolph etc.) I used to come home and they would be lined up in a perfect row. (some are big so i don't know how he did this) He used to be so proud of himself too. He would meow very loudly and proudly with his eyes closed, head up, until we said, "yay Toby, thank you!" Then he would let out a little "mew" as if to say you're welcome... and would wander off... Then I would put them all back under the tree where they belong only to find them out again shortly after lol... (every Christmas I will put his favourite Christmas stuffies next to his urn now, and have been...I love you cat

(he brought in my much older Uncle's dirty undies once... thanks Toby...!)

He also had his babies.. (an iguana and elephant stuffie that he would carry around with him in his mouth and do the meow thing bringing them to us daily.. His elephant is beside his urn always, and we gave Floyd his iguana so he has a part of his bro with him in his cat bed as they were biological bros so it comforts Floyd who is now coming to me for hugs... meowing at me to stop typing.. so with that... )

Very cute, Solace Smile

My Thomas & Twinkles used to be a right pair. Twinkles was so grumpy at Tommy all the time but he always tried to be friendly with her. He was brave and adventurous and she was scared of her shadow. He'd go off hunting and bring her presents, put it down in front of her and then watch her figure it out... on my living room rug Surprised a live garter snake, mice, and yes some bunnies too. Twinkles would poke at them a bit then Tommy would zip off again outside to find something new.

...never brought home any knickers though but gawd help the fresh clean laundry in the basket. That needed immediate sleeping on...
