And that's why we can't have nice things  
Got up yesterday morning and found my mobile phone on the rug under the kitchen table, with the lovely leather case all chewed around the edges. I'm missing a sock, too; one of a pair that I bought in Topshop in London. I dropped it about a month ago when I was taking my washing downstairs to the laundry; by the time I came back upstairs to retrieve it, it was gone. No idea where it ended up. Earlier today I heard a weird crashing noise in the loungeroom, and upon investigation I found Ziggy with the swing-top of a small rubbish bin wedged around his middle. He was flopping about like a fish out of water, trying to dislodge it. Every workday morning he steals my socks from the vanity counter, and will steal my toothbrush and toothpaste too if I don't move them out of reach. One of the handles of my good handbag has teeth marks in it, as do the uprights on two of my dining chairs. Two of my Tower Bridge collectible plates were in pieces on the floor last Saturday when I got home. The souvenir boomerang I brought back from Darwin disappeared for ages; finally found it (along with half a dozen wrapped sweets, a toy mouse, and numerous hair ties) under the tv cabinet.

I have never had a cat like Ziggy before. He has to investigate everything with his teeth. Anything left on the kitchen bench he considers fair game. He feels the need to reassure himself that I'm still here about ten times per night - and I wonder why I always feel tired. I love this cat to bits but he is slowly driving me crazy!

I don't think I've heard of a cat hiding things before. Weird.

Can't you shut him out of your bedroom? Or am I just suffering delusions based on growing up with dogs who were not allowed in the bedrooms?

He's weird all right, a real little magpie when it comes to taking off with things.
Shutting the bedroom door doesn't work too well; I end up with both Ziggy and Bodie scratching at the door and crying, so I either lose sleep or give in and let them in.

Hooray, you have a Destructocat! I had one too - that's why I kept the bedroom door closed whenever I was gone - Birdie would've knocked everything over if I had left it open.

(And that last bit of the story is familiar too... "Mommy? Mommy? Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy?!... Hi")

Destructocat - that's exactly what he is. He's into everything.
He doesn't do too much in my room except when I'm in bed, and as I mentioned to Drayce above it's difficult to shut him out at night.

Yes! It's a cat thing. *g*

Oh no! Not those lovely plates! Do they have Cat Obedience Schools like they do for dogs? Or maybe one or two of your older girls could be brought in to teach him some house rules. *g*

Belated thank you for the lovely vGift. How did you know about my sweet tooth?

Oh no! Not those lovely plates! Yes, although not the ones behind Zig in that photo. I've glued them together and sat them in the china cabinet at the back where the cracks can't be seen - but I know they're there :-(.

Guessed about the sweet tooth, and you're very welcome :D
