ENGLAND -- If you have ever had a pet cat leave a mouse or dead bird for you, you know how cats are.

But an English Family's tabby is a true cat burglar.

Dennis the cat goes out at night..and returns home with Men's pants, socks,car sponges and shoes...among other items.

Sometimes he even gets a accomplice to tag along.

Apparently cat behavioral experts think his thieving is just an extension of his natural hunting instincts, although wild cats tend not to catch many tea towels.

Dennis' owner --Lesley Newman-- jokes she's been train him to get money and jewels but no luck so far.

Lesley hopes her neighbors will learn to collect their stolen belongings from her living room and learn to forgive her light fingered feline.
