I think all living beings are so amazing with their thought patterns! It would seem that Dusty just really gets his kicks from doing this, maybe he loves the attention that all the neighbors give to him, and the fact they have to go to his house, maybe he is just very social. The fact that his favorite item to steal is a bathing suite, now that may not be such a mystery. Most pools are chlorine treated, and unfortunately cats are attracted to chlorine, and chlorine is toxic to them. However, the small amount remaining once the bathing suite is washed, I would not think would be enough to harm, that being said I guess I need to surf the web and check that out, I encourage you to do the same just so you know as well, knowledge is our first line of defense! Great Video, thanks.,

Well, seems to me that this is much better than kitty hunting birds and bringing them home. It's nice the neighbors don't mind.

I used to know a dog (golden retriever!) who would take items from other houses nearby...mostly shoes. The owners would place them all on a small tree at the front of their house so neighbours could check out if a missing item was there. Unfortunately, if the items were shoes, often they were unwearable after the dog's 'lend' of them....
