Famous Kitties Series: Part3- Dusty the Kat Burglar

Introducing Dusty the Kat Burglar (aka. ) “Dusty the Klepto Kitty.”

I thought everyone had heard of “Klepto Kitty,” but apparently there are still some who aren’t familiar with his story.

First, a little background info:

Born March 20, 2006 in California, Dusty is a male snowshoe kat who had a purrfectly normal Kat life (lounging on the couch and ruling the house all day), until 2008, when his family started noticing stange objects appearing in the house.

Where most kats deliver beheaded mice, insects, and other Kitty delicacies to their humans, Dusty was a little more creative. He  dragged in socks, shoes, underwear, bras, work gloves, small toys, and countless other things gathered from houses around his neighborhood!

Eventually, a camera was put outside Dusty’s house in an effort to find out how the mysterious items kept appearing.

And so, “Dusty the Klepto Kitty” was born!  Unfortunately, Dusty didn’t know that stealing could get him in trouble…..

…. Or get him a reputation as a Kat Burglar.

On the bright side, his exploits turned him into a kat celebrity- and after returning the things he stole to their owners, he was brought on the David Letterman show, and also became a star on
Animal Planet and Must Love Cats.

Some kats have all the luck.

    • No…. I don’t really have to go to the trouble… I’m so talented that all I have to do is wait till I see her taking her shower every night (next stop is the bed), and just go lay on her Teddy bear and start kneading my paws. She comes to bed and sees me blissfully snuggled up with him and can’t bring herself to take him away!! VICTORY!! MOL!!
