The Redwood City Parks and Recreation Department has announced plans to hold its 10th anniversary Pet Parade in May and they are hoping to land Dusty the "klepto cat" as the grand marshal.

Dusty has become a national celebrity because of stories unmasking him as a local cat burglar. He has stolen hundreds of items from neighboring yards.

We have not yet heard back from Dusty's owners, but there is some concern he might steal the show.
