Theo, a part-Siamese cat in Ipswich, England, is a kleptomaniac, although he would probably describe himself as a "collector." Paul Edwards and girlfriend Rachael Drouet began noticing things around the house that they did not recognize. First it was cat toys.
Mr Edwards said things "escalated" after that.
"We've had things like muslin cloths, fluffy pens, a USB phone charger cable, a child's piece of art which they'd obviously spent most of the morning making - a glorious thing with lots of different colour feathers and leaves stuck to it, lots of things.
"We've got some other neighbours who have young children and quite like the cat so [they] had encouraged him into the house.
"He started stealing things from them and it kind of went downhill from there."
