I clean up after the humans all the time. I don't consider this "stealing" their food, I mean, they leave things sitting around. I believe they do this on purpose for me, cause anything at my level is mine, right? That only seems fair! To leave things at my level & then not expect me to clean up just doesn't make sense.
The usual things I take are usually nearly empty wrappers from all sorts of tasty cereal bars and ice-cream treats. I especially like the wooden sticks from those! Yougurt, pudding & butter tubs are good to lick. I did steal a corn cob outta da trash once, that bout gave my mom a heart attack, hoping I wouldn't have to get my tummy cut open to remove it. But I chewed it up real good, so I was ok.
My favorite thing is to chew up napkins and paper towels. It's a ritual - mom knows if she leaves napkins around, I'll take them & leave everything else alone. She learned this the hard way - one night I discovered a tasty pair of glasses & mangled the frames to bits. Mom was NOT happy with me in the morning. But they were titanium, so the eye-doc got them bent back, a little welding here & there, and they're almost like new. They sit a little crooked on her face now, and sometimes when she thinks I'm smiling at her, I'm really having a husky chuckle over how silly she looks in her crooked glasses. So she leaves me a napkin or two where I can get it every night.
You know, now that I think about it, I'm not a food thief after all. It's a career choice - I'm a professional
"cleaner-upper & general food container disposal expert".
Ha-roo, I like that!
Well that's my story & I'm stickin to it. (sticky & tasty is good)
Ha-roos to yous,
