Pumpkin is a three-year-old cat with a weird hobby – a daylight robbery of her neighbors’ underwear
The pesky puss has been on a knicker nicking spree by bringing home a fresh set of lingerie every day and according to her owner, she brought back ten pairs of knickers this week alone.
Owner, Zoe Davies, said: "This week alone I've had ten pairs of knickers (all the same size and make), two bras and two pairs of tights. "
"One week she brought home a pair of knickers, then a few days later brought me the matching bra, I thought that was quite impressive. My children and friends think that the whole thing is hilarious. But I really don't know what to do, I thought about putting an honesty box outside - but I can't put underwear outside my house."
The family always finds the clothes in the morning and are alerted by Pumpkin crying after she's brought something new home
Zoe posted letters through six of her neighbours' doors explaining what's going on - and asking if they want to be reunited with their undies.
She believes the naughty haul could be coming from the same house - as they are all the same size and make. But no-one has yet laid claim to the array of underwear and other clothes. Because none of the items that Pumpkin returns ever have pegs on, Ms Davies thinks it's unlikely that she's taking them from washing lines, instead, Ms Davies thinks that she's getting into houses either through cat-flaps or windows that have been left open due to the hot weather. Zoe said: "I don't people to worry there is a cat burglar out there - it is just Pumpkin on the prowl."
