What we've got here is a...leaf-napper!

The perp: Cali, a sneaky calico whose mission in life is to steal my bestest velvet leaves...

Here's my innocent box-o-leaves...When I'm not looking, she verrrry quietly jumps up onto my worktable and nuzzles around in the box til she finds just the right one. It must be a spray of leaves, preferably expensive ( from Tinsel Traders, of course), and one with some of the leaves cut off. She delicately takes it in her sharp little teeth and stealthily makes off to her lair...on a folded blankie by the window...or under our bed!
She proceeds to wrestle the thing into submission...
I didn't do it!!!!
Further evidence...Here's a close-up of the poor victim, slightly moist with a few tooth marks...

Case closed for now. Leaves returned and replaced with proper cat toy...(not!)...this is the only toy Cali likes, so I do let her play with the wire skeleton that's left over when all the leaves have been cut off. I think she thinks it's a really long, skinny bug!
Gotta love her. And I do!

This reminds me of when my mini schnauzer Margot was a little younger and would grab any and everything! She'll still grab paper scraps, etc. if something is within her reach! On the bright side, at least the leaves still look okay!

How adorable. My furry friend, Tummy is sitting in my lap right now admiring your sweet kitties antics.

How funny...I just posted about velvet leaves on my blog. LOL! What a gorgeous cat! I think I would be inclined to forgive her anything she is so beautiful. But since we are a three cat household, I will consider myself warned and lock up my newly found velvet leaf treasures!

I'm new to your blog and love it. I cracked up at your kitty "helper". Don't you know she is helping you to "distress" the leaves??! LOL

What a sweetie...I have two white cats and I positively adore them. Who doesn't like cats??!!

I am so excited to see what you are up to for fall, and especially Halloween. I have been screeching to a halt every time I see anything glitteres for Halloween! I am a Halloween nut and I am looking forward to transforming my home into something (nicely) spooky!

Please keep us informed about your t.v. spot with Martha. You're such a celebrity...I'd be walking on air if I were you!!!

How adorable! Sounds just like our Muffin ~ his weakness is for silk rose petals, tho, especially the ones with just a hint of fairy dust on them!!!
