Are these your socks?
Move over Dusty the Klepto Cat, there's a new cat burglar in town, and this young kitty only has eyes for one thing: Socks!
Tosca, an 18-month-old shiny black cat from Greenford, UK has collected nearly 50 pairs in the past month, and her owner Dave Griffiths is worried that the cat's mischievous habit will leave area residents with chilly toes.
Griffiths' tells the Ealing Gazette, "It started in my house, collecting my socks from around the house, then I realised they're not all mine. They're all clean so she must be getting them from neighbours' laundry baskets." (I hate to think how he knows they're all clean.)
With the icy kiss of winter nearly upon us, Griffiths has turned to the newspaper for help in reuniting the orphaned socks with their owners, after a door-to-door campaign proved fruitless. Individuals who recognize any of the socks in the picture are urged to contact the reporter through her email address.
