Serial Cat Burglar Is Talk of Texas Neighborhood

A thieving cat from Katy, Texas, has become the talk of the town for repeatedly taking things from neighbors’ houses this summer.

Video by Jeanne Wheat shows her cat, Cleo, bringing an array of garments, cloths and other items into her house.

Cleo brought back so much stuff that Wheat set up a table out front, asking neighbors to reclaim their property. “My cat is a thief” a sign next to the table seen in the video says. “Please look through his loot and recover your stuff.”

Cleo has become “the most viral subject on our neighborhood Facebook page,” Wheat told KHOU-11.

As she wrote in her sign, he appears to have “no remorse”, but she wanted to “apologize on his behalf.” Credit: Jeanne Wheat via Storyful
