Momcat has an underwear fetish!
No not me sillies! My mommy cat, the mother of all the kittens. She was spayed two weeks ago and is already a different cat. Her fur is growing back beautifully and she is now so fat, that if she hadn't been spayed I would almost think that she is pregnant again (?). Trusting in the expertise of my vet though I can only say that all is good. She has however started a hobby up again that she had in the past but not to the same extent as she has embraced it now. Kittykie loves socks, dirty, clean, rolled up or not, it doesn't matter. She carries them around in her mouth, meowing all the way.
Now she has recently discovered that my neighbours, whose washing line is up a steep and inaccessible bank, prefer to drape their smalls on the bushes, burglar guards and fence surrounding their back door. She happily (when they're not looking) robs them of bras, panties, socks, t-shirts, anything that catches her eye. On Sunday when I returned from the swimming pool with the boys, I counted a string of 12 items across the lawn to my door, which she had collected that afternoon. So she robs them in broad daylight. Sneaky little cat burglar. I was blaming it on the dog but its definitely her. I gather the items into a plastic bag and toss the bag down from my bank onto their back path where they can find it. They probably wonder who, how, why their washing is in a plastic bag on their path but they haven't obviously seen Kittykie in action and they haven't approached me to complain.
I'm laying low!
