I Was Gone Five Minutes!

Every now and then, I realize that Monkey Kitty is great training for the eventual day when I might have children.  Sure, as long as there’s enough food and water I can potentially leave him alone for a weekend, but at the same time, if I leave anything “dangerous” around?

Five minutes.

For example, I was working on the Wedding Blanket when I decided to ask the Blanket Thief a question.  I left a ball of yarn attached to a swatch on the coffee table while I went upstairs to consult with him.  I wasn’t out of the room for more than five minutes.  And when I came down?

To give you an idea of the damage he wreaked, here’s a close up:

That used to be a slightly blockish ball of tightly wound yarn with a neat ball band on it.  At this point, it’s roughly three times normal size.  Meanwhile, Monkey Kitty made it clear that he did not understand why I was yelling about being “gone for five minutes!” and that if I would just go away again, he’d like to finish what he started.

And that neat little ball band that had originally been around the ball of yarn?  The Blanket Thief found it hidden in the bottom of Monkey Kitty’s hide-away bag, without a single tear or mark on it.

It’s really quite amazing what that cat can do in five minutes.  Especially considering that he doesn’t have opposable thumbs.
