'Thieving Cat' Obsessed With Men's Underwear Steals Over 60 Pants And Socks In Two Months

A cat that is obsessed with men's underwear has stolen more than 60 pieces of socks and pants in just two months. It's a mystery which is leaving everyone within the local community in native New Zealand a little confused.

Brigit, a six-year-old cat, has become a social media sensation. Sarah Nathan, from Hamilton East, who owns the cat, says that it has stolen 11 pairs of men's pants and 50 socks.

And the cat has even made a collection in Sarah's home. She's posted leaflets in her local community apologising for her pet's behaviour. The owner is also asking anyone who thinks they have had their underwear stolen to come forward and reclaim them. Speaking to the New Zealand Herald, Sarah said: "It's really, really weird. She's got really specific taste.

"In our last house she'd bring home a bit of everything - she'd bring home men's undies, women's undies, togs, she even brought home a hockey shin pad and a jumper. "She was much less discerning - now she's decided menswear is the thing - and it's a very specific kind of underpants that she likes.

"It's an absolute obsession. A night does not go by without her bringing things home. "I got up this morning and there were another four socks in the house."
