The secret behind missing underwears in Mosman, a suburb of Sydney, is finally out — and a cat is to blame. Dalton Rd residents had been left baffled when underwears left hanging on clothes lines and in laundry baskets began to disappear, prompting suggestions of a pervert burglar at prowl.
But it was the six-year-old Cisco who had been leaping fences to get his paws on clothes including socks, swimmers, shirts, dresses - even dolls. "It just started a few months ago, Cisco kept bringing in all manner of items. People were wondering where their things were getting to," the Courier Mail quoted owner Peter Hand as saying.
"I''ve been trying to find the owners. One lady asked if I had her swimmers, one was electric blue and one was black. She was delighted to get them back," he added. The blue-eyed cat also cleaned out unsuspectingly left garden gloves, a pin cushion and kid’s toys. Cat psychic Scott King added: "The cat is an animal that teaches us to get in touch with our creative self.
The fact that Mr Hand's cat is stealing possessions, particularly underwear, is a sign that it's time for him to start listening to his dreams."
