When Charlie the cat goes outside, his family knows what’s about to happen - luckily they’ve found a way to deal with it.

The Bigge family live in Bristol with their two adopted cats, Charlie and Smudge. 

Sneaky cat

Both cats are outdoor cats who love to explore their neighbourhood. Unfortunately, Charlie has developed somewhat of a problematic habit. 

Indeed, his owners started finding very random things inside their house - things that didn’t belong to them. Things like plastic dinosaur toys, clothespins, cutlery, and even a rubber duck! And every time these objects showed up, Charlie the cat looked incredibly proud of himself.

Lost and found

The Bigge family quickly put two and two together and realised that their adorable cat Charlie was a bit of a kleptomaniac. And the day he brought home reading glasses, they realised that they had to do something.

So the family built a sign that read:

"Klepto-Cat! Our cat Charlie likes taking things. Do any of these things belong to you? If they do please help yourself!"

The sign was placed in front of their home, and the Bigge family certainly hope it’ll help neighbours to be reunited with their missing things. 

In the meantime, Charlie hasn’t shown any interest in stopping his thievery, so if you live in the Bristol area, keep a close eye on your belongings!
