Tisiphone

"Tisiphone is a Munchkin, and breeders always emphasize the fact that these cats are like magpies, always stealing small shiny things. I disregarded this as a fancy, after all, a lot of cats will make off with small things as a toy and then disregard them somewhere."

"However, when Tisiphone entered my household I noticed after a while that certain things were disappearing. Most noticeably pens and pencils. One minute you would have a jar full of pens, next you're searching the house for something to write with."

"I had not connected this occurrence with Tisiphone, until one day I heard a strange strangled mewl and saw Tisiphone creep past with a pen in her mouth. After following her (she was so intent on her prize that she didn't notice me), I saw her push the pen under the bookcase. After she left, I moved the bookcase and there found over thirty pens, a couple of pencils, key-holders, a necklace I had lost, socks, cat-toys and various other items no longer recognisable."

"We now also suspect her of stealing my husband's wedding ring, but unfortunately since I took back all of the items she had so carefully stashed she must have found a new hiding place for her hoard. She's clever now though, I have not been able to catch her stealing again (but things do keep disappearing) and have not been able to find her new hoard!" - Corine Judkins
