Zaza, a five year old tortie oriental cat, has been bringing cuddly toys from the neighbors’ to her humans. So far this klepto cat has snatched 17 soft toys in a month.

Daisy Ayliffee, Zaza’s human, initially thought she had an intruder coming into her home and dropping off teddy bears outside her bedroom door until one day she caught Zaza carrying a soft giant doughnut through the cat flap.

They don’t know for sure where the toys are coming from. Zaza is especially drawn to teddy bears. “It obviously has some sort of fetish, the nylon, synthetic material must somehow appeal to her.” (Daily Mail)

“She used to leave them outside the bedroom door for us, it was really funny. I came home one day and there were three massive teddy bears in the house.”

Before seeing Zaza in action, Daisy wasn’t convinced and thought the cat wouldn’t be bringing in massive teddy bears. “Then at the moment the cat came through the cat flap with a giant doughnut. I thought, this is really weird. Then another day I thought she had caught a mouse as something was squeaking but then I realized it was a squeaking teddy bear and it has just gone on from there.”

Daisy woke up one day and found an Eeyore bear in her bed. Another weekend, while they were having dinner, a big brown bear fell on their dining table. “It’s sweet the way she offered them as gifts.”

The couple have now relocated to a new area where there is a walled garden, so the cat’s burgling habit has been stopped. However, in the first week after they moved in, the little boy from upstairs lost his teddy bear as it had fallen from the window. It didn’t take long for Zaza to find it and bring it to her humans.

Zaza the klepto cat has brought home 17 toys she took from her neighbors.

Now, they have moved to a new place where Zaza can no longer practice her klepto habit, but it doesn’t stop her from picking up little toys that fall from the upstair neighbors. She’d bring them to her humans with pride.

Playing with your cat is a great way to bond as well as get in some good mental and physical exercise. Here is a list of fun games to play with your cat.

1. Staircase Sprint – Stand at the bottom of a staircase and have your feline friend sit at the top. Throw a ping pong ball so it hits the back wall of a step one of or two below where your cat is sitting. The ball will bounce back and coming rolling back towards you. Your cat will follow it down the stairs trying to catch it. But the ball should reach you again before the cat can get to it, so you can keep throwing it back up the stairs until your cat is tired.

2. Bathtub Bustle – Place your cat in a clean bathtub and bounce a ping pong ball of the side of the tub to get things going. Your cat while have loads of fun chasing down the always moving ping pong ball.

3. Bubbles – Buy a bottle of bubble solution and blow them around indoors or outside. Attempting to catch and pop all the bubbles will keep your cat occupied.

4. Toys – Some recommended toys are playthings like balls with bells on them, wand toys and catnip mice. Some useful things you might find around the house are straws, boxes, crinkled up paper or bottle caps.
