A sneaky cat named China surprised everyone after stealing various belongings from her neighbors. The adorable thief ended up gifting the stolen items to her mother!
Monica, China’s mom and owner told The Koala in an interview, “I first found a pack of cigarettes at the foot of my door as I was walking out and thought maybe a housemate dropped them, so I set them aside.”
She then found matches on the floor as well to go along with the cigarettes which confused her further. Monica began to suspect little China when no one claimed the items. She further said, “I pieced it together that she must have stolen these things from the neighbor’s yard. I knew she liked to steal things from my previous housemates, so it wasn’t too hard to figure out it was her.”
The 7-year-old cat loves to bring things to her mom at least three times a day. It has been made part of her daily ritual! In addition, Monica also said, “Sometimes, I’ll find a trail of random items that didn’t quite make it to the door, probably because she [China] got distracted.”
At first, Monica was afraid of how her neighbors would react to a thief living so close to them. However, she sent back the stolen items with a note explaining the situation. Her neighbors found the whole thing extremely hilarious and did not press any charges against the little cat!
The clever short-haired and sneaky cat loves hanging out outside. China is a rescue cat and has a brother named Waffles. She is a very caring cat and loves taking care of Waffles, who suffers from anxiety.
Although China is not too cuddly, she still loves getting head scratches and loves her mother the most!
Let’s hope the neighbors keep an eye out for the adorable thief stalking their area!
