    bring home packaged pepperoni for dinner? "Us Cat" did. I followed him one day to find where he was getting them. There was a old market near and he would crawl under the foundation into the cellar and into the store. I told the owner about it and he said "by golly I thought the kids were stealing them". But after that he did block the hole. So that ended "Us Cat" shoplifting. :evil:

    That's a good cat story! You should send it in to "Animal Planet"!

    If you would order Pepperoni Pizza on a regular basis the Poor Dear wouldn't have had to resort to being a Cat Burglar :lol:

    No not pepperoni, but we had a cat that would bring home socks from the neighbors. This was back when most houses had the washer & dryer in the garage so it was quite normal to have baskets of laundry in the garage waiting to be done. If someone left their garage open our cat would without fail rifle through their laundry & bring home socks.

    Reminds me of that "stealing cat" video on YouTube. Too bad you don't have a clip of your cat stealing the goods.

    My cat steals my socks and lines them up in the hallway. She "sings" to them as she hauls them. I think she thinks they are her babies or something.

    We had a cat that would steal the corn cobs out of the neighbors trash and drag them across the driveway and chew on them. He was also the one that dug up every pansy she planted in her flower bed. She'd replant them and he'd dig them up again and toss them out of the bed.

    One of our cats used to bring home food for the other cats... guess he thought we didn't feed them enough or something :)

    That all came to an end after he was hit by a car while out 'shopping' and he is now a three-legged cat. Well, I thought it would all end, but when I got up yesterday morning I found some chicken bones on the dining room floor.

    Is there therapy for them do you think?

    We had a dog once that brought home 1 brand new running shoe, NOT my size. Wonder what the poor woman thought when she couldn't find the 2nd shoe? He also brought home a teddy bear once.

    My Siamese cat, Suki, used to bring home socks! Once on two consecutive trips to the neighbors she brought home two matching socks... we used to play fetch with her with a rolled-up sock... gosh, I miss that cat...

    I had a black lab many years ago that would retrieve things from the neighbors. Stainless steel bowls, all sizes, clothes, towels, sheets, bbq utensils. I would never know what she would bring home next. I would be afraid when the neighbors would come over in case they recognized something. For about 2 weeks, she brought home wool clothes that still had the dry cleaning tags still pinned on them.
