Savvy cat lovers will agree felines are exceedingly intelligent. They love talking about their cats' brainy prowess.
I myself am guilty of bragging ad nauseam to my friends about how
my lilac-point Oriental Shorthair, Hush Puppy, could more than likely compete with Dr. Albert Einstein.
I have to admit however, that my bragging rights were recently set back a peg or two.
While visiting a dear friend the other day, our conversation got around to our cats' interesting habits and how "endearing" they are to us. HA!
As usual, I was puffing my chest out in pride while relating the story about Hush Puppy's closet capers. My friend grabbed me by the hand, leading me to into her computer room. With a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye, she said, " just wait 'til you see the photographs and read the story about Jean and Tom's beautiful RagaMuffins and their amazing bag of tricks." Once I saw them,I was in awe and deeply humbled.
The moment I arrived home, I instantly told Hush Puppy about what I had just seen. He was quite interested in contacting these furry geniuses for some lessons in perfected pussycat pilfering.
Apparently Jean has a cupboard in her utility to store their cat supplies. Since one of their kitties had been opening the doors, mainly to get at the catnip, Jean inserted a screwdriver to thwart their thievery. They thought they solved the problem with dispatch.
Jean asks, "Do these babies look remotely sorry?" It sure kooks to this blogger that they were about to score a huge heist. I love the "vacant" look on Bliss's face staring out of the open cabinet with apparent disdain.
But Cole is considering all his options, as Bliss sits by patiently to reap their potential rewards.
Did Cole succeed? Did the dreaded cabinet door cord tie remain intact?
What do you suspect about the outcome, dear readers? Please stay tuned for further developments.
