    I got the below off the news wire; it's a non-copyrighted story, so it can be pasted here in its brief entirety. Other than my distaste for the word "owner" when referring to a feline's human guardian, I thought it amusing:

    We had a dog (a basset hound) who liked to bury things. Socks were the usual candidates, but he had taken to fetching things off the kitchen counter. My sister's wallet was missing for three days, until it was discovered buried in the garden. Later, I had bought a brand new 3" hole saw (cuts 3" holes, go figure), and when I went to use it it was nowhere to be found. I searched for days for that thing, only to discover it under a clump of dirt in the back 40. Why he figured a metal tool was worth stealing I'll never know....

    Yes, it hilarious how cat owners just let their cats have the run of the neighborhood and take no responsibility for their actions. [​IMG]
    If I found that cat stealing things out of my yard, the next day it would be in a pound three towns over!

    Great sense of humor, Jesse: Lucy the cat is a source of laughs for that neighborhood in Woodland, CA--else, the story wouldn't have been written. And that's all this little thread was intended for: a laugh. Thanks for your fun contribution.
