A woman is baffled by her very own cat ‘burglar’ that keeps returning home – with pairs of RUBBER GLOVES.
Bemused Sarah Mumby, 38, said the bizarre behaviour appears to stem from a love of rubbish.
But unlike other cats, the nine-month-old moggy doesn’t seem to like catching animals – only bringing a mouse in once.
She said Maggie started by bringing small items into the house before graduating to litter – and now bringing back rubber gloves.
Sarah, of Clevedon, Somerset, says she has no idea where Maggie is getting the gloves from – and wants to apologise to anyone who has had a pair nicked.
She said: “Hopefully they can get some closure! I’m trying to find out who it is on Facebook.
“They are definitely used for gardening – they have mud on.
“It all started about a month ago, with really small things – like a stick, a feather or a leaf.
“I was waiting for when it would go up and gear and be animals. But it turns out that she doesn’t have a love of animals – she loves litter.
“She brought home a strawberry tub and an empty potato bag.
“The one day I went downstairs – and there was a rubber glove on the floor. I asked my daughter and she didn’t know anything about it.
“It’s been a steady stream [of gloves] since then! It’s just a mystery. Someone must be scratching their head.
“We are all on tenterhooks every time she comes in. We’re hoping to set up a camera.”
Sarah posted pictures of Maggie’s finds in a local Facebook group with an amusing message.
She said: “Apologies if any of these are yours 😬 my cat seems to be bringing home a steady stream of rubber gloves over the last couple of weeks 🤦🏻♀️.
“Let me know if they’re yours and I will replace them with a pair of gardening gloves. Sorry 😂🤣.”
