Thieving Murderers!

My husband calls me a hypocrite for chastising the cats for something that only days ago I was praising them for.

Ok, I'm still proud of them for killing the mice. But it just seems fitting to call them thieving murderers!

Yesterday was a very busy day, running around getting the car worked on for next week's Road Trip and other various errands. One of them was to be going to the bank, but I never got to it.

Which is why when I was getting ready for bed, I still had a couple checks and some cash in my pocket that were supposed to be deposited. I set them on the counter in the bathroom so I'd be sure to see it first thing in the morning and put in back in my pocket for today.

Well, when I went in this morning they were all jumbled. Checks scrambled on the floor and counter and the money? GONE!

Little thieves stole my money! I looked all over for it this morning and can't find it anywhere! Just now I thought that I should have shuffled through the clothes lying on the floor in the bathroom (We're not always very tidy) and that maybe they were just playing with the money and it's still in there but under something.

I kept telling them I wouldn't feed them until they coughed up the loot. Or at least told me where their secret stash was.

The creeps wouldn't tell me a thing.

They undoubtedly used the money to go purchase a dime bag.. of catnip. If you notice them gettin the munchies later, then you have found your answer!

I'll bet you're right, Shawnie...I'll bet you're right.

And where have you been!? I've missed you!

Too bad you can't sic the criminal masterminds on the squirrels in your roof!

Maybe they're in kahoots with the mice...

Hmm.. been here I guess. Just been busier at work so I don't get to check your posts as often. (tear, tear) They moved me to another branch and now I am a csr, head teller, and sort of assisting some loan officers in the branch. So lots of new hats, but yet no raise yet. I am rather aggravated about that to say the least! Nice to be busy I guess, but I would like to be compensated for it. Anyway, that's my mini-rant for the day ;) Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Ah, the corporate world...:) I guess I don't really miss it all that much. Though any job has a hint of it I suppose. Good to hear from you, anyway! :)

are you SURE it was the cats?

Anne said...

Well, who's ever sure about anything? My brother is highly unlikely as why would he have reason to go into my bathroom anyway?

My latest suspicion is that my husband swiped it to buy me a Valentine's present so I wouldn't see money come out of our bank account...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. At this point it seems like if the cats had done it, the money would have turned up.

I'll be sure to update you all next Wednesday! :)
