Oscar the cat burglar

Residents of a plush Auckland suburb finally have an answer to the age-old question - who's taken all my socks?

It turns out it's a cat burglar by the name of Oscar.

Oscar - a mandalay – has been stealing from the residents of Herne Bay for eight years now.

"In the morning there are either socks on the steps or on the landing, or just out here or he's dropped them next door," says Oscar's owner, Paul Wai-Poi.

The cat takes at least one sock per day from neighbourhood houses, the local school and a construction site.

That amounts to about 3000 socks over the years, but sometimes Oscar brings home much more.
