KGO-TV reported earlier this week that a cat burglar was on the loose in San Mateo.
The hard-to-catch thief is a friendly house cat named Dusty by day and a nefarious cat burglar by night who has stolen more than 600 items from neighbors’ homes, KGO-TV reports.
The Animal Planet show “Must Love Cats” installed a camera outside Dusty’s house to catch the crooked cat in action.
Dusty’s story has drawn the attention of Salon.com and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
