Bay of Plenty cat steals shoes in the night

“The most we’ve counted in one night is seven shoes.” Miss Graham visited her immediate neighbours to see if any of the shoes belonged to them and initially managed to return most of the footwear but it seems the adventurous feline has since gone further afield. She has printed flyers to deliver around the neighbourhood in the hope of returning the shoes.
