This morning I rushed out of the house to get to work on time. Once in the car and down the street a bit, I realized I had left my cell phone at home. I did not want to be without my cell phone all day, and since I noticed I had the time, I turned around and headed back to my house to pick up the phone.
When I went in, turned off the alarm (yes, we have to have an alarm here) and went into the bedroom to get my phone, I noticed my cat, Squeebles bent over something on the carpet that I couldn't see. I went to investigate and found he was eating a Band Aid wrapper.
Yes, we have weird cats. I had to use a Band Aid this morning, and from prior knowledge of my cat's fetish, I always make sure to put the Band Aid wrapper in the garbage and cover it up. Ahhhh, but my cat Squeebles isn't as dumb as he might appear. He has figured out how to knock the top off the garbage and fish inside for the delectable Band Aid wrapper he so desires - and that is what he did this morning.
I ripped the wrapper away from him, all soggy and half chewed - and dispensed of it in the kitchen garbage which he cannot get into. Squeebles looked mighty guilty - he had waited for me to leave before digging through the garbage for his "treat". Sneaky cheater.
What the heck is it with Band Aid wrappers anyway???? Oh - he also likes to lick photographic paper and Consumer Reports magazine, both of which we have to put away so he can't make himself sick.
