This UK cat has a penchant for clothes

The real-life cat burglar! A mischievous feline who has a penchant for flicking things has stolen more than one hundred garments from a UK neighbourhood.

The cat has a weakness for pinching and has swiped all manner of items which he takes home to his embarrassed owner Lesley Newman, aged 49. The pet has become infamous throughout his Luton, Bedfordshire, neighbourhood as 'Denis the Menace' after stealing more than one hundred garments from his nearby homes and gardens, the Daily Mail reported. Over an 18-month crime spree Denis's haul includes a bath towel, a thong, a football, five paintbrushes, a pair of slippers, an designer shirt, a doll and gloves. He has taken men's boxer shorts, a pair of shoes, a cardigan, a dog chew, dozens of pairs of socks, a chamois leather, tea towels, seven car sponges and a cuddly toy.

Victims of the two-year-old black and white cat's antics often turn up at Newman's home.
