'cat burglar' Milly who has amassed a large collection of cuddly toys acquired during her travels around the neighbourhood. A mischievous moggy has been dubbed the real-life cat burglar as it cannot stop stealing from neighbours - including piles of cuddly toys and household goods.See story SWCAT. Feline Milly has developed an addiction for pinching anything she can get its paws on - and has baffled her owners with the wacky items she has acquired. The cheeky cat has been hoarding all the 'stolen' items at home - including scores of clothes, cuddly toys and assorted household goods. And things have now got so bad an appeal has now gone out in a bid to return each piece to its rightful owner. Owner Angie Hannaford says ten-year-old Milly has been collecting the bizarre goods for years but has recently been stepping up her 'criminal' activity. As well as socks, sponges and draught excluders, she has also keen to show off her strength - by even bringing back heavy door stops.

The Sun reports that Milly the cat brings the loot home to owner Angie Hannaford who has no idea who the stuff belongs to as no one has complained.

Mum of eight Angie, 53, from Exeter, Devon, said: “She has been doing it for quite a while – it isn’t something that started overnight.

“Last year it was car sponges, then it was cuddly toys. Most recently it was a door stop she dragged up the road.


“I don’t know where she got it from, I haven’t returned it to the owner because I don’t know where it came from.

“I put adverts on Facebook but no one has come forward.”

Milly, 10, started the crime spree around three years ago.

Angie said: “Recently she dropped a little pink piggy at the front door and a small fluffy duck at the back door.

“She likes dusters and she loves ducks. I have three of them which she has collected along with two fluffy parrots, three elephants, somebody’s cap, one slipper and a pair of socks.

“I had a black bag full of stuff that I had to throw away.”
