Hold Onto Your Underpants if Bella’s in Town!

Jailhouse stripes, or an orange jumpsuit? Those may be Bella’s fashion choices if she doesn’t curb her klepto ways. Looks innocent enough, doesn’t she? But behind that “Who, Me?” exterior is a klepto cat who is now bringing home three or more purloined clothing items per night from her Vancouver BC neighborhood. Her criminal career started spontaneously last year. She started with socks. A tube sock here, a knee-high there. By the end of the summer she’d accumulated half a trashbag full of stolen goods.   Once Bella got a taste of the criminal lifestyle, she expanded from socks to just about anything else…including unmentionables. Investigators have not uncovered any eBay accounts or flea markets where Bella might be looking to fence her stash. Her owner has posted signs trying to reunite victims with the goods, but hasn’t had any luck. Maybe they don’t want back some clothes with cat spit all over them.

  1. Why, they could sell their reclaimed stuff for extra money, just BECAUSE there is the added cat spit! Keep it up, Bella…

    Long ago, when Mom was 24, so half of My Mom’s Life ago she had a young kitten and she used to carry Mom’s stray socks, those tossed Mom took off and just threw on the floor! Mom found her Master Bath Toilet water “running” and several of her socks in her toilet! Ivory was not strong enough to actually FLUSH the toilet! But Mom actually saw Kitten Ivory carrying her sock and watched her dump them in the toilet and batting the the handle.As Ivory grew older she stopped this behavior!
