Pip stole my wallet

I spent the last couple of hours in a frantic search knowing with certainty that the last time I could recall seeing it was Sunday at the Target check-out paying for Mom’s purchases.

We turned the house upside down & then headed out to Target to see if anyone had turned it in. No luck.

I drove back home dreading that I would be on the phone till God know’s when cancelling this and finding out how to replace that.

One last effort and then the calls would begin.

And there it was, batted under some shoes. I say batted because only Pip could have so cleverly hidden my lifeline, after first chewing on it.

We were wondering why he had taken to sleeping in his “house” these last few days after ignoring it since the day we bought it for him.

He was no doubt wracked by guilt. Now I have to check my cards to see what charges he made.

He has a history you know. Money, and once a check went missing.

    Wait till the UPS truck shows up with 500lbs of fresh samon and 1000lbs of tender vittles and self cleaning litter box.

    That should teach you to stuff it with ‘nip ;)!

  • That is absolutely adorable!

    Cats! (…in the same tone Seinfeld said, “Newman!”)
    My dogs never once filched my wallet.

    Obviously you haven’t been giving Pip enough ham, so he had to punish you.

    I swear my tuxedo cat once stole my car and was driving up and down our country road with it. I blame the Jews myself.

    Sneaky kitty! It’s usually dogs that do this — they tend to destroy leather wallets.

    Steve Martin had the best bit on cats.
    “$3000 worth of cat toys. And you can’t return ’cause they have spit on them.”

    It’s an important feature of cat toys that they be destructible, otherwise the cat loses interest in them. This also means that any thing destructible is a cat toy.

      any thing ……. is a cat toy.

      After present opening tonite—Hag sama’ach to all-
      I made a little ‘house’ for our cat with the bags and wrapping paper.
      He seemed to enjoy hanging out in there and pretending
      that he was invisible, while his tail stuck out…

    BTW that is a Rembrandt-esque portrait of Pip.

  • Send him to his pillow without any supper!
