In February of last year I presented the story of Dusty, a cat burglar from California with an uncontrollable penchant for stealing from other people’s houses. I thought his behavior was unique, but it has just turned up across the Atlantic—in Luton! The video below shows a black-and-white moggie named Denis Newman who can’t keep his paws off of other people’s stuff.
The alert sleuths on the BBC’s One Show, aided with a GPS device and a camera affixed to Denis’s collar, documents many acts feline purloinage, and in the act also maps out the cat’s territory.
Perhaps to atone for his mideeds, Denis is now an official sponsor for Homeless Cat Rescue of Bedfordshire, and you can donate or buy Dennis tee-shirts to help abandoned cats find homes.
Inevitably, Denis has a Facebook page.
