Klepto Kitties

Bad enough the cat figures out how to open the refrigerator–while some gavone is standing there filming it. Well, sunshine, what happens if kitty opens the fridge while you’re not home? And then, to make matters worse, you let the cat crawl all over the refrigerator shelves. I guess you like your food garnished with cat hairs.

I am happy to say my cats show no interest in such delinquencies as are depicted in this video.

  1. BTW, I have a klepto-cat myself. In the last six months or so I am missing two socks (from different pairs) and a contact lens case, complete with a one-day old soft lens. 🙂

    1. Now there you go blaming the cat, when you have no witnesses, no physical evidence–and it might have been a pack rat sneaking into your house and purloining those items without the cat’s knowledge. Or it might’ve been one of those people from Orion.

    2. I’ve seen pack rats under my shed, so I can’t discount that notion. I haven’t seen any people from Orion under my shed, but then again, I haven’t really been looking for any, so I could have been staring straight at them and just not noticed. I haven’t seen the ground under my shed in over a decade, but I’ve heard that there’s a portal there that leads to the ground beneath a wading pool. A lot of strange stuff comes out from under that shed. 🙂

    3. Ye shedd hath strenge poures for to ronne yon feyne theene… [Shakes head vigorously] Sorry! You write novels in Middle English, and after a while you start to talk like Chumley.

  2. My red Persian, Pooh (two cats ago), once stole an entire corn-on-the-cob off the table and ran off with it. I managed to catch him and get it away from him halfway through the apartment, but I have no idea what he thought he was going to do with it. Another time, he snagged an entire eye round roast (cooked and on the table) and tried to make off with it, but that time he made it only to the doorway before I caught him. I blush to say I rinsed off the roast and ate it anyway.

  3. Yikes! I’d be horrified at the thought of all the food in my fridge going bad with the door left open. Worse than cat hairs though are the litter box paws. Yuck.
