Pant-stealing cat burglar Brigit's New Zealand crime spree

Be it mice or birds, people with cats are used to them returning from their forages with "gifts".

But Brigit, from Hamilton city, New Zealand, has a different obsession. The six-year-old Tonkinese feline likes to bring back men's underwear.

The story has been social media catnip since Brigit's owner, Sarah Nathan, posted a photo of her cat burglar's collection.
