They may look innocent enough but these two felines are responsible for a mini crime spree in the east of England.

Christmas is a gift for Theo, a three-year-old Siamese cross belonging to Rachael Drouet and Paul Edwards from Ipswich.

He is a seasoned cat burglar, regularly bringing home "treasures" from neighbours' houses.

But this year, Theo has really got into the spirit of Christmas.

He has forsaken his usual diet of clothing, phone chargers and other cats' toys for a selection of Christmas decorations which his owners believe he is pilfering from their neighbours' trees.

Ah well, you can't bring all criminals to justice. ;) Cheeky kitties! lol

They're too cute to charge!

I liked the quote from one of the owners about being embarrassed to confront the people the things are taken from. I suspect it wasn't because their cat is stealing, but because the items (underwear, etc) might be a bit 'extraordinary'! :lol:

I think I'd be embarrassed too.
