Owner Jean Chu told the San Francisco Chronicle he has pilfered gloves, towels, shoes and more since she adopted him from the Humane Society.
"I noticed a piece of latex glove on the bed one morning and told my husband he should do a better job cleaning up his work stuff," Jean Chu, whose husband is an artist, told the Chronicle. "He said, 'It wasn't me. I think it was the cat.' "
Dusty has a special love for swimsuits.
"He stole my bikini," Kelly McLellan, who lives a few doors up the street, said to the Chronicle. "He did it in two trips. He was very focused on keeping the ensemble. When it went missing I wasn't worried, though. I knew where to go."
Experts say Dusty's predatory instincts have gone astray, leaving him hunting for people's stuff.
The cat's thieving has made him a minor celebrity.
