I was playing on the computer this morning before I left for work when I heard this "scratch, scratch, thud, scamper, scamper" sound coming from the hallway. I ignored it at first; I could tell the cats were playing with something, and just assumed it was one of their many, many toys (or my sneakers ... for some reason they obsessively steal my sneakers and play with them). When I got up to go to work, I found my cats playing with my brand new purse! It was handmade by a friend of mine: she dyed and felted the wool herself, then knit the purse and sewed in a lining, and it's very, very nice (the colours turned out really, really well!). I had put it in my bag, which I then hung on the bannister -- somehow, the cats got it into their heads to open the bag and steal my purse! (I suppose they were attracted to the smell of real wool?) Fortunately nothing was missing from it, but still ... I can't believe my kitties are purse snatchers!
