An exasperated cat owner has revealed how her mischievous feline has stolen up to 50 pairs of her neighbors’ shoes during night time prowls.
BJ Ross, from Altoona, Pennsylvania, told how her pet, called Jordan, regularly returns from stalking the streets with an item of footwear lodged in his jaws, Bored Panda reports.
Alarmed by the increasing number of rogue shoes from neighboring homes and gardens ending up in her yard, BJ installed a security camera and discovered that her pet was responsible.
Mortified by the kitty’s thieving ways, BJ created a Facebook page in the hope of returning the shoes to their rightful owners.
