We have a large throw rug in our entry way that is soon to be replaced. The rubber backing has disintegrated and it crumples up easily. I shook out the throw rug on Saturday and was surprised to find a number of things that had gone missing under the rug crumples. I found the stylus for Husband’s cell phone, several twist ties for bread bags that had disappeared from the counter, and a couple of pens. How did they get there?
Millie, our Tortie cat, loves to knock things off of tables and counters and bat them on the laminate floor. They spin so wonderfully, and if you bat them to the throw rugs you can hide them under the rugs and then stick your paws under the rugs and fish them out again. Since Mom and Dad are tired of smoothing out the throw rug, treasures can stay there for quite a while.
We have a jar of twist ties in the kitchen that I used to keep on the counter. Millie loved to fish them out of the jar and bat them all over the house. Now they are in the cupboard. Once, in the middle of the night, I heard her sliding something in the hall, and found her trying to put Husband’s glasses under the rug. What a great kitty game! She is never bored.
