THE story of Karalee's cat burglar, an 11-month-old tabby named Mufasa, has created a media storm since owners discovered stuffed toys mysteriously appearing in the house.

Teddy bears and other soft toys including a monkey, a dog and a giraffe have appeared under a table during the past fortnight after the cat started escaping out of the home at night.

Owner Shana Skinner has since spoken to neighbours to return the toys but has not been able to find the owners.

Ms Skinner set up a Facebook page "Help - my cat is a kleptomaniac" two weeks ago to help find the owners of the toys and has had media coverage in newspapers, television and radio, but the origin of the toys remains a mystery.

In her latest Facebook posts, Ms Skinner said they had not had any new additions to the toy collection but no one had come forward to collect them.

"Mufasa is a dearly loved member of our household," she said. "He has plenty of toys, both of his own and from a large family and no real need to steal, except he thinks it pleases us."
