Chai the and his gloves haul. See SWNS story SWNNcat. Most cats might bring a dead bird or mouse home to leave on their owner's doorstep. But one cat has picked up the strange habit of stealing workmen's gloves with more than 30 collected in the last month alone. Five-year-old tabby Chai amassed the impressive haul on her daily travels with owners Sam and Kira Mandon-Jones baffled by her thieving habits. The couple believes that many of the gloves have simply been discarded in the area by workers in Aylesham, near Canterbury.
