As most cat owners know, cats can be some of the sweetest, most adorable pets in the world... when they're not being troublesome, mischief-causing agents of chaos.

Lovers of wily hijinks and shenanigans, cats can get into all kinds of trouble, not the least of which is stealing and hiding your personal items and belongings.

Left outside for safekeeping; shoes, socks, and garden gloves are safe-no-more as long as cats roam the streets... Which brings us to Esme.

After receiving the 10th "gift" in a row from their well-meaning cat, Esme's owner decided it was time for their little miscreant to come clean.

Setting up a streetside "yard sale", Esme's misunderstanding was exposed, quite literally airing her dirty laundry.

Hung on a clothesline beside a sign reading "My cat is a thief", the apologetic cat owner outed her furry criminal, giving the gloves back to their original keepers.

Chastized and caught once, I think it's safe to say that Esme will one hundred percent be back at it almost immediately.
