This Cat Has Stolen So Many Neighbors’ Shoes That His Owner Created A Facebook Group To Give Them Back

This Pennsylvanian cat has devoted himself to a life of thievery — but his owner is making amends for the feline’s petty .c.rimes.

A devious cat burglar – emphasis on the cat – who has been “ᴛᴇʀʀᴏʀɪᴢɪɴɢ” the city of Altoona, Pennsylvania, has finally been caught and named. The thief has been identified as a black-and-white cat named Jordan who lives in Altoona with his mommy, BJ Ross. Earlier this month, BJ Ross of Altoona, Pennsylvania, created a Facebook group to address one of her pet cat Jordan’s habits: stealing other people’s shoes. According to WTAJ, the six-pound, black-and-white kitty’s nightly routine consists of going out, nabbing some shoes from the neighbors, and then returning home with the stolen goods — so he’s amassed a sizable collection of footwear.

The social media forum now has almost 3,000 members keeping an eye on Jordan’s burglary activity.

“If y’all know my cat Jordan. Y’all know he loves to bring me home shoes!!!!!” wrote Ross in the description of the Facebook group, titled simply “Jordan.” “Yes, you read it. This tiny little cat drags me home with one, two, or three shoes. Every night!!”

Ross has equipped the thieving kitty with a GPS tracker to see where he goes at night, and she’s found that Jordan not only hits multiple houses a night, he also hits the same houses multiple times. He gets to walk between 11 and 13 km every night, planning his misdeeds

Ross continued, ” This past January I started noticing shoes would show up in my yard. I thought nothing of it and would throw them away. As this progresses over the months, my mom suggested I keep the shoes to find the owners.” His pile of contraband has grown to include over 50 shoes, to his mother’s distress.

Recently, BJ Ross of Pennsylvania created a Facebook group to help with one of her cat Jordan’s bad habits: stealing the neighbors’ shoes. The group is also a safe space for discussing Jordan’s thievery. But though Jordan’s crimes and identity have been revealed to the public… …Jordan doesn’t seem to care.
The cat owner also installed a security camera in her family’s backyard to capture Jordan sneaking out on camera — and they’ve seen the feline hop a fence with a shoe in his mouth.

“I knew it was him, but that kind of solidified that it was really him,” Ross told WTAJ of seeing Jordan bring a shoe home in the footage.



“I’ve received messages from all over the U.S. that it is just making their day brighter,” she explained of Jordan’s social media fan base. “With all the bad things in the world, he’s just giving a smile to so many people across the United States.”

Jordan has found his passion in life. He can’t help that that passion is “stealing.”
