This is Dusty ...
This is Dusty's mug shot - kind of, sorta
In the past three years Dusty has wandered his neighborhood at night collecting everything from small toys to pajamas and bringing his collectibles back to his humans. He has gathered over 600 objects.
You can read about Dusty in this article from USA Today
And you can see his appearance on Letterman
That's where I first heard of Dusty.
Cats are gatherers and they bring what they discover back to those they love so clearly Dusty is happy at home. The neighbors have gotten accustomed to his behavior and if something is missing they know where to look - Dusty's yard.
Although this is a fun story and Dusty is adorable I just need to mention that I take issue with allowing domesticated cats to wander from home. I don't think it's safe for them. Letterman shared this opinion with Dusty's people - they say he gets out through the dog door. Dave suggested sealing the dog door. I love Dave.
Have a good weekend everyone.
