In San Mateo, California, lives a cat named Dusty, now called “Klepto Cat.” In the dark of night, Dusty sneaks out from his home and ravages the neighborhood, stealing things from other people’s houses. He’s purloined bathing suits, stuffed animals, sponges, towels, underwear—you name it.
Dusty’s booty now totals more than 600 items. Some are so large that he has to waddle when bringing them home.
Dusty’s been a klepto cat for three years; his gateway theft involved a sparkly pink purse. Animal Planet set up a night-vision camera that captured him in flagrante delicto; here’s the LOLzy video of the investigation:
In an interview with a local television station (video at link), his owners display a sample of Dusty’s swag.
And, in his ultimate fifteen minutes of fame, Dusty appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, where David read Dusty his rap sheet.
