China brings home anything people leave outside, like gloves
“She has such a strong personality and when she wants something, she’ll do just about anything to get it. Most of my things are basically held down with earthquake putty and every night, I do a China Safety Check just to make sure everything is safe from her nightly prowl.
When I moved to my current spot is when the real ‘cat burglary’ started. I was leaving to work one day and found a pack of cigarettes at my entrance. I assumed it was a housemate’s so I put it to the side and thought they’d come back for it. I came back from work and found matches. I was so confused. A few days later more items started appearing and that’s when I pieced it together. She had been burglarizing my neighbor’s yard and wouldn’t stop. I would put everything back in their yard as soon as she dropped it and she would bring them back immediately like ‘Hey! I thought I gave you this!’ so I had to wait until the end of the day to return all the items.”
