Cute Little Thief: This Cat Can't Get Enough of Stealing Socks

Posted by Paige Cerulli

Cats get into all sorts of strange things, but this cat can't get enough of stealing his owner's socks. 

Cats can be a little strange. They sometimes develop obsessions with strange objects, like pulling all of the toilet paper off of the roll or stealing items they know they're not supposed to have - like nylon stockings or socks. But that just helps to keep life interesting, doesn't it?

In the case of this gorgeous cat, he's developed an obsession with socks. This cat loves socks so much that he'll take them from just about anywhere, and he'll carry them through the house in his mouth. The video is great - be sure to take a look!


A cat's quirkiness is part of what makes it so fun to have cats around the house. You never know what crazy thing they're going to do next. If you find that your socks frequently go missing, this video proves that you should not only check your sock drawers, but you should also check to see if your cat may be the culprit.

If your cat is a bit of a thief, then the best thing you can do is to store the items he's tempted to steal in a place where he can't get them. You might also try giving your cat some new toys of his own to keep him entertained. Your cat may be trying to fulfill his natural instinct to hunt, so try playing with him or hiding small treats around the house so that he can satisfy his hunting urges another way.

And always make sure to put all of your socks back in the sock drawer after you do the laundry.
