Cats can be smarter than you think!

Saw this on another message board:

Now, there's nothing unusual about chow hound kittehs chewing open a bag of cat food on the counter, spilling the bag over and nomming away.

However, Sylvia and Norma have elevated the process to High Art.

See, I left this bag of cat food on the counter, and, to all appearances, it sat undisturbed for several days...until I grabbed the bag to refill the dispenser.

It was only then that I noticed the neat hole opened in the back, and that nearly all the food was gone.

So, not only did they nearly empty the bag, but managed to do so:

1) Without moving the bag noticeably;

2) Without leaving telltale kibble lying about.

This is what I call TALENT.

2. Yes, that is TALENT.

Now maybe your kittehs can explain why there is an ad for Crazy Sheriff Joe in the Lounge.

3. too smart is what they are,

not to mention devious.

What I love is there was no clue, no hint, no telltale evidence. Gotta love 'um for that.

4. Are you sure it was your kitties, even as smart as they are.

Might have mice.

I had box of ceral that had a small hole in the back.

I never noticed it because I didn't eat the ceral.

The box was empty, just a small hole in the back.
