Woman Contacts Police Over 'Prowler' After Clothes Left On Porch, Turns Out To Be Her Cat
A woman contacted police over a 'prowler' who appeared to be leaving strange items of clothing lying around near her home, only to discover the 'prowler' was actually her cat. You can see the feline caught red-handed below:
Heather Bardi was left confused after finding a grey top on her porch a few weeks back and was initially concerned there could be a prowler on the loose who had brushed up against some washing.
In the following days and weeks Heather found more items of clothing lying around on her property including a pair of ripped boxers, socks and bikini bottoms.
Growing increasingly concerned, Heather, 36, asked her husband Joe to file a report with the police.
However, shortly after as Heather was leaving for work she spotted the real culprit - her cat Admiral Galacticat who casually strolled past with a sock in his mouth. It turned out the cat had been making off with her neighbour's clothes.
Heather, who lives in New Orleans, said: "When I saw him it was like I had an epiphany, I was excited to finally figure out what was happening.
"I'm so glad I had it on video because I had been telling all my friends about what was going on and I didn't think anyone would believe it was the cat if I didn't have proof.
"I was also feeling kind of embarrassed because my husband had called the cops and filed a report and had them drive by periodically to make sure there wasn't a prowler, at least not a human one.
"I never actually counted the items but it was a small load's worth because I washed them for my neighbour before he came to retrieve them yesterday evening."

Heather says that until lockdown, Admiral had been a house cat but he got 'fed up' being cooped up with Heather, Joe and their son Elias and started begging to go out.
It was at this point Admiral got a taste of cat-burglary and started nicking items of clothing from her neighbour whenever he got the chance.
Heather has since set up a Facebook group to try and get the clothes back to their rightful owner.
She said: "Nobody had been in touch to mention the clothing going missing until I posted on Facebook.
"That night a neighbour hit me up on a comment to let me know that it was her neighbour across the street and told me he would come by.
"Admiral never brought the clothes into the house, merely left them on my front porch, on the front walk, the skirt of the driveway.
"When he saw me walk out the first time I caught him I knew he was up to no good because he looked at me, dropped the sock and then ran next door underneath my neighbour's truck."
