|My Sweet Jack and his Banana|
It all started with a catnip filled banana.
I hurried up and slipped it into my purse, which was on the bed in the master bedroom, because I didn't want to lose it. Jack's brother Leo happened to be in the bedroom at the time. I chatted with him a little bit. I told him that Jack was doing great and said "HI", you know, the usual.
Leo was watching me intently the whole time.
|Jack's brother Leo was watching me|
May I add that Leo and Piper, since they live together, often get into a lot of trouble together, too!
When I got home from the party, I told Jack I had something special for him that his Aunt Jackie had given to me.
Then, I started to go through my stuff from the party. Jack helped.
First, we took everything out of the bag.
|Jack even did a thorough sniff test. It yielded no results!|
We looked around.
The Banana Catnip Toy was NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!
Jack kept looking because he knew it was for him and he knew it was a cool toy.
He just didn't want to give up.
|Jack even got into the tote to see if he could find his present.|
It was a tight fit.
|All to no avail|
Then suddenly I remembered... Leo!
I wrote a quick email to Leo's Dad. I briefly told him the story and then I said, "Now, I'm not accusing your cat child of stealing, I'm just saying the temptation may have been too great..."
Mark replied, "I'm not saying that any of my kids did anything... But, when I got home tonight, I found a banana wrapped in chewed on plastic."
Leo had stolen the catnip banana out of my purse that night, the little stinker! My guess is he nabbed it as soon as I left the room.
|Leo, the culprit!|
When Jack got it the following day, he was overjoyed!
|I got a banana!|
LOVED HIS BANANA CATNIP TOY!
The banana catnip toy is now full of cat spit. It has been dragged all over the carpet.
I think Jack has forgiven his brother for stealing his toy. What do you think?
As Aunt Jackie remarked, "That Kitty Pot is a pretty potent temptation!"
I think I'm going to have a little talk about catnip with my nephew Leo the next time I see him!
