Mystery Solved

I bought this from Old Navy, so I have had no excuse as to lose hair ties. Now, a little note to preface, when you have curly Ihateyouandwanttofrizzandruinyourday hair you need anything you can to pull that bad boy back. Well, at least I do.

I was complaining to C on the phone the other day that I couldn't for the life of me figure out where all my hair ties were going. I keep the ball in my purse, that way, should I need one in a pinch, I have one (or 20,000- you never know)! It was a mystery to me because the ball kept getting smaller and smaller, but I couldn't find any laying around the house. So odd. Or so I thought......

Now, a little history about the boys before I reveal how this mystery was solved.....

So Tiger and Spaz like to play, but only if there is catnip involved. In the past I have spent a boatload of money on toys, for them to just stare at them like they are waiting for them to come to life. Then they get bored and walk away. It has been awhile since C and I have had a kitten, and I forgot how active they were! So he ripped through all the old toys and loved the ones he got for Christmas from Chewy, Olive, and Sadie. (And yes, the gifts were for all three cats, but someone hasn't mastered sharing yet). There, now you know I'm a good mommy and buy them toys. There is no excuse for what you shall see below.

My money is on the little one doing this....

Apparently someone has been stockpiling hair ties and feels the need to throw them in the water bowl. This also means that someone has been crawling into my purse and removing said hair ties from the ball. Or stealing them from me when I least expect it. He is tricky. Also, I shall no longer spend money on kitten toys. I'm just going to buy him a bulk pack of hair ties. Good plan.

Moral of the story? Don't underestimate the sneakiness of a kitten.


  1. Lol, so cute. My sister's cat was obsessed with a bag of rubber bands. She'd carry the whole bag around in her mouth and pull one out at a time to play with, and replace it when it broke. Such a weird but cute little cat.

  2. Oh my gosh I cannot count the number of times I have had to steal back a hair tie from my cat Allie. I used to take my ponytail out before getting into bed at night and leave it on my nightstand, but of course it would magically disappear by morning. Now I put the elastic on top of a box that's on top of our dresser. HA kitty, take that! :)

  3. Hair ties are definitely my fur baby's favorite toy. I find them hidden everywhere!

  4. Isn't it funny how cats would so much rather ignore all those expensive toys we buy them and play with (and destroy) all our stuff instead? I totally get this ;) My younger cat thinks it's awesome to gnaw through my bra straps. I've already lost 4 bras that way!
