Feline felon suspected in glove thefts - Yahoo! News

PELHAM, N.Y. -A pink-and-white gardening glove was missing Thursday morning from Jeannine Goche's front porch. But there was absolutely no mystery about who had taken it. Willy, the cat who loves gloves, had struck again.

"It has to be him," said Goche, an attorney. "I've heard about him."

I got this story e-mailed on Friday and laughed at because it was a cute animal story but it was gardening related. I guess if you live in Pelham and you're missing a gardening glove it was probably stolen by Willy.

When I was younger I had a cat who liked to steal things too but he would bring back kittens. I know, weird my (male) cat was a kidnapper. He'd show up from time to time with a litter of kittens that he'd be hiding in the basement.
