Forget Rodents, This Cat Brings Home Underwear

Your cat may bring home some interesting "gifts," but this cat brings home men's underwear. 

The cat in question is Brigit, a six-year-old Tonkinese cat with an unusual habit -- stealing men's underwear and socks from neighboring homes.

Brigit belongs to New Zealand resident Sarah Nathan, who recently documented the cat's bizarre behavior on her Facebook page, posting a photo of Brigit with many of the underwear and socks she has retrieved.

"Now it's getting silly... Every morning we wake up to more," she wrote. "I've put notes in every letterbox in the street. Someone must be missing this stuff."

And there is a lot that has gone missing. In just two months, the cat acquired eleven pairs of underwear and more than fifty pairs of socks.

Nathan has an idea of where the items are coming from, though. In a BBC interview, she mentioned that the undergarments were probably from a nearby apartment "full of blokes."
