Dog House Blog, Denis Is A Menace!

Denis the menace, the real life cat burglar!

Denis the menace, the real life cat burglar!

If you live in the Luton area of England you may have come face to face with the real life cat burglar Denis. The mischievous pet has become infamous throughout his neighbourhood after stealing more than one hundred garments from his nearby homes and gardens. Over an 18 month crime spree the purr-pertrators’ haul includes bath towels, boxer shorts, footballs, paintbrushes, a pair of slippers, and of course cuddly toys. Victims of the two year old black and white cats’ antics often turn up at his home looking for their belongings when they go missing. His biggest haul so far is a bath towel which he dragged home through the streets and then into his house through the cat-flap. He even managed to retrieve a woman’s sandal from a garden and returned a week later to pinch the other one. Many of the items have been taken off washing lines with clothes pegs still attached. We hope his owner is not arrested for handling stolen goods! Owner Lesley has built up two large boxes filled with Denis' loot which she keeps in case anyone arrives to claim ownership of them. Are they labelled ‘Cat Litter’? Does Denis kleptomani-cat look like he gives a monkeys’? Does he hell! I am partial to stealing the odd ‘Pukka Pie’, what are you good at stealing?

  4. Happy birthday Mr Pip, hope you enjoy your cake..You certainly like you Pukka Pies Molly..bol . Have a great Furiday xx00xx

  5. Our cat Baggy, in his youth would get on top of the fridge, open the freezer and steal bread.

    Nin hasn't figured out what stealing is.

    Lee would steal anything from the counter or any of the other pets food.

    Zaphod just steals hearts.

  6. Hi Molly, Thats one hell of a cat burglar, are you sure he's not flogging it on ebay. Thats what I said to my other half last night, look what the cat brought in!

  7. So far, I only steal used tissues out of the bathroom trash! BOL
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  8. Now that's one pussy I'd like to see in action....I mean....stealing and filching and dragging and having a helluva time. Now..regarding me: does used tissues for the noseys count...I'm loving the texture and fragrance! Happy Pipday, Pip!

  9. I am pretty good at stealing my MOM's heart.

    You sure love your pukka pies Molly!!!

  13. That is pretty funny about the cat burglar! Kelly steals all Brooks' toys. She won't let him have any. Now when I give Brooks a toy he just drops it because he knows Kelly will come steal it. Even if I put Kelly in another room, he won't touch the toy. That makes me sad, but so far I can't find a solution. The only thing Kelly lets him have is tennis balls, which is great because he loves those!
    Love the picture for Pip!

  14. ha ha ha - cute! Happy Friday~!

  15. Hey Molly I've too have seen something about a cat burglar but had no idea a dog would do it too. WTG Denis

    Loved your great expectations for Pip....he is the best!!
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  16. Very cute! When I accidentally drop some of my cat's dry food Daisy is always ready to steal some of it!

  17. By the way, I love the "Send Word Verification To The Guillotine" gadget! I think everyone should know that word verification is a huge bother, don't you?

  18. we will be on watch duty in case this cat goes international, thanks Molly for yet another in depth report and warning!!!

    Your Furends
    Susie & bites

  19. We burst out laughing at Pip's birthday picture. Good one!
    The only one who "steals" things here would be Tutu. She steals socks (and makes HOLES in them!) and towels and rags...It's really so funny when she has a large bath towel in her mouth and trying hard not to step on the towel and trip while she is walking with it.

  20. Brilliant picture of PIP and spooky Miss Haversham. What a great gift for his special day.

    As for what I steal..... Only hearts! *flutters eyelashes*

    Love and licks, Winnie

  21. Cake!!! Yes please, I'll have some cake! Thank you Miss Havisham! So nice of you to make an appearance for my birthday!

    Your pal, Pip

  22. Wrigs says it figures that a silly cat would steal a bunch of stuff you can't eat! What's the point? Wrigs favors roaming the neighborhood to steal steaks and burgers off people's grills and plates, or stealing anything edible from anywhere at any time. (In his dreams, anyway. He doesn't actually get to execute these plans.) He does, however, admire Denis's ingenuity and dexterity in stealing items off washing lines.

    Happy birthday, Pip! Enjoy your cake!

    Susan and Wrigs

  23. You got skills Molly!!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

    You and your mom are VERY clever. :)

    I steal lots of things, but only cos Mum likes to play chase, but she always wants me to steal something first before she'll play, so I oblige and find something cool, come and show it to her and we're OFF!! Lottsa fun!!

    Hope you're having a fun day :)

    Your pal Snoopy :)
