    This is what Maui brings me. Sam (1966-1986) was the first to present me with one of these. The next day my hubby installed a back door with glass. I don't let my pets in without seeing what they've brought. This was taken thru the French doors.

    That's too funny! I have to keep my shoes locked up because my cat steals them. He thinks they are chew toys.

    No, but we had a "clepto" dog. He brought home balls, sticks, clothes, shoes, even all 3 "bases" from a ball park. I kept a box in the garage of all his "hauls"...nobody would ever claim any of it though. It might have had to do with the slobber on all the stuff though.

If someone left their garage open our cat would without fail rifle through their laundry & bring home socks.
    So that's where my socks are going. I lose at least one sock a wash.

    I had a cat who would steal things I had thrown in the chicken's pen for them to eat - like squash skins, corn cobs, rye bread. After a while we would just let him have first crack at the corn cobs, he really liked them.

    I can still picture him reaching his paw in through the fence for a half-squash skin...

    When I was a kid my cat had her kitten in my bedroom, so I left the window up a little so she could go out. Most cats would bring home birds or mice for babies but not Susie she brought her kitten corn cobs.

    I saw on animal planet about a amazing cat that stoled so much they put the stuff out so people could claim their own. Now if you could train your cat only bring home something you could use.

    :roll:

    I had a cat once who swiped the chicken bag out of the sink. Made me think I'd forgotten to put it out to thaw for dinner. Then two days later we found the source of the odd smell in the room (bag of chicken under the bed, bad kitty ;-) )

    The old store was built in 1800's probably one of the first buildings in our town, they would leave the back door open a little in the summer for ventalation.

    This story is almost as funny as the thieving kitty story.

    My little calico Patches has a soft toy which she has torn all the stuffing out. Every morning it's laying in a different spot from where it was when I went to bed the night before. The other day she came down the hall with that poor toy dangling from her mouth and she's meowing. I think she thinks (or wishes) it's her baby. She's never had kittens but it's so cute but rather sad, also.

    I had a neighbor, whose dog would jump through plate glass, and wander the neighborhood. I had lived there 4 days. I am enjoying my coffee after everyone left one morning, and I am suddenly disturbed by the sound of snoring. Then I realize that it is behind the chair I am sitting in. I slowly turn, and find a dog asleep there. I froze. I had never had a dog, so I slowly dialed my neighbors number (on a rotary phone) and BEG her to come and save me. First dog I had ever been near. Terrified! My neighbor comes over and says " She does this if she can get out." I now live with 2 dogs. I feel so silly when I remember my faint heartedness. :oops:

    My son's cat is a thief! She steals shiny things, like dimes. Five or six yrs ago she stole my wedding ring & the sapphire ring my husband had just bought me.
