A long time ago a neighborhood cat left a present for me on the front porch. While I'm sure it was a testament of kitty's love, were it wrapped in newspaper it could very well have been some sort of warning.
Now comes word that a kitty in Pelham, NY is stealing gloves. Yep, gardening gloves. If fact, over the past few weeks this very special kitty has taken in 9 pairs of gloves and five singles from various neighbors. The story goes on to say that the kitty only takes them on the weekend, presumably when people do most of their gardening.
I guess neighbors are taking it in stride as most of them like the little kitty. Apparently, he follows the mailman up and down the block and to the front door of each letter recipient, so they've gotten to know him. (Of course I believe he's caseing the joints, but I may be a little paranoid.)
Kitty's owners have hung the gloves on a low hanging clothes line with a note telling all that their cat is a glove thief, and that if anyones missing gloves are found on the line, to please take them.
I just can't help but wonder what kitty wants with all those gloves. We may never know, but I'm sure there's a reason behind it, and that reason probably has something to do with world domination.
