A kleptomaniac cat known as Brigit, has been caught stealing men’s underpants and socks by her owner, Sarah Nathan. The 6-year-old Tonkinese cat has stolen 11 pairs of boxers and more than 50 pairs of socks since January. It even prefers matching socks.
Nathan has been attempting to return her neighbors’ clothing by placing notes in mailboxes, to no avail. Due to her cat’s increasing burglary behavior, she has taken to Reddit to notify owners so they can collect their underwears.
Nathan says that in a previous home, the cat wouldn’t be particular in what she stole. Most Tonkinese cats are nocturnal hunters — but she has developed a curious taste of late.
“She was much less discerning, now she’s decided menswear is the thing, and it’s a very specific kind of underpants that she likes,” Nathan said.
“One will be at the front door and one will be at the back door – so she’s obviously gone back to get the matching sock,”
