A cat burglar and kleptocat, has stolen the hearts of Australians after becoming an internet celebrity for his relentless robbing of locals and their toys. Kay McCall and her husband were moving into a new apartment last year in Ferny Hills, near Brisbane, when they met a ginger cat who hopped over the fence looking for a head pat and chin scratches. It became an enjoyable daily encounter, but as the visits continued they began to notice an accumulation of toys in their yard. They caught the cat in the act and found out that he was stealing toys from other homes in the area. The pair then took to Facebook to post about the event where Ingrid Moyle, a resident in the neighborhood that fostered animals, offered to take care of the cat. Kylo now chooses a toy and drags it up the stairs to their bedroom, where he presents it to his new mother while she is presumably trying to sleep. He then runs off to get another one. Since the happy ending, the Pirate Kitty fan base has asserted that Kylo actually now owns Moyle, rather than the other way around and everyone looks forward to new posts about the cat’s mischief in the Ferny Hills home.
