A cat owner has posted a sign asking neighbors to retrieve items stolen by her burglar pet.
Kate Felmet in action after Klepto kitty Esme pinned down a large collection of masks, clothes and gloves.
The sign, which reads “My cat is a thief”, also invites people to retrieve his property, which hangs on a row next to it in his garden in Beaverton, Oregon.
“As soon as I signed up, she went for a week to bring me nothing. I got the impression she was a little crazy about it,” she said.
“People would come and take pictures mostly, but we had a school bus drive and took a few pairs of gloves.
“I’m thinking of making another sign that says take off a pair of gloves if you want.”
Esme has also brought home a neighbor’s camera from her garage, bathing suit, rolls of tape, paint rollers and clothes.
And when the weather turned pleasant and people were working in their gardens, Esme began to bring home gloves.
And Ms. Felmet, 50, laughs at any suggestion she publicly shaming her three-year-old cat.
“When she brings them, she comes to the back door and shouts, like, ‘Wooor!’ Until I come and tell him that he has done a good job.”
