Cat burglar prowling Leamington

Archie has a fondness for bringing washing home from around the neighbourhood.

There’s a cat burglar prowling the Leamington streets.

A renegade cat named Archie has been stealing peoples washing in the early hours of the morning.

“We have a renegade cat named Archie who shows his love by gifting us our neighbours’ washing,” Lynley Keightley told the Cambridge NZ Grapevine – Info sharing group on Facebook.

Usually the stolen items are easily returnable as it is normally their immediate neighbours around Lamb St near the Leamington Primary School.

“Recently he’s been going further afield,” Keightley wrote.

Keightley posted in the Facebook group with the hopes of being able to reunite the stolen washing items with their owners.

“If you recognise your favourite socks or undies from Archie’s latest haul, please get in touch and we will return them to you,” Keightley wrote.

“Yours sheepishly (cattishly?), Keightley family.”
