You remember Denis the cat burglar, right? He’s the cute cat in England who has a penchant for pilfering articles of interest from the neighboring houses, dutifully bringing them home to his human friend, who has amassed a collection of shoes, sponges, trousers, socks, and a couple unmentionables. The theory is Denis is trying to satisfy some misdirected hunting instinct — but really, that’s just his alibi. “I plead insanity!” cried Denis on the stand.
But if you ask your cat about it, the cat will say, “I am not stealing. I am a cat. I own everything. I am just letting you borrow that glass of water, but it’s actually mine, and I can take it back at any time with or without warning.”
Here are 10 cats taking back what’s “rightfully” theirs. Who’s going to object?
