We have a routine in our house every morning. At about 5:00 am the dumb cats think it is time to get up. Tetsu and I don't think so. But Choco agrees with the cats and she starts barking. The cats are overjoyed that they've got a very vocal supporter on their side.
For awhile Tetsu and I yell down the stairs to Choco to be quiet. (Yes, she is in the house because the neighbors do not appreciate her barking out in the yard at 5:00 am!) Sometime around 5:30 I give up and come downstairs with cats scampering around my ankles and leaping from dresser to dresser hoping I'll hurry up with food.
Toi gets put in the cat cage because he eats EVERYBODY'S food and is too fat as is. Patora and Chip get put in the Japanese room with the door closed behind them. This is to keep them from the expensive cat food that Vel and Cleo eat and to protect Vel from Patora (Pato HATES Vel.) Then I feed Vel and Cleo upstairs and finally Choco goes for a morning walk with Tetsu and me. Choco gets 40 minutes of exercise and then gets fed when we come back.
This morning after I put Vel back in his room I opened the Japanese room door to let Chip and Patora out and look what had been strewn in the doorway!!! Obviously these two don't like being locked up in the room and had to show their displeasure with vandalism. This is worth about 10 dollars and I don't know which cat has such disregard for money. I suppose I am at fault since I left the cash on the desk after one of my English kids paid me.
I am reminded of last year's episode in America with Leiya's $50. At least this incident wasn't as gross as that one!! What is it with animals and money?
Tetsu suggested that since I am the patchwork specialist in this family that I should tape the bill back together but I told him he could keep it if he could put it back together and get the bank to take it, so he took up the challenge.
Which cat do you think looks guilty? Patora or Chip?
