Animals Who Steal: Why do they do it?Published August 7, 2009
Another week has come and is almost over. So the fun of ending the week with an upbeat and humorous blog item is an idea to which I highly subscribe. Of course I am assuming that those of us those who regularly visit Petside.com, love animals and enjoy reading about them. It goes without saying that this is a "no-brainer".

There are so many reasons which endear us to our furry and feathered friends that it is impossible to list them all. In addition to the unconditional love that they willingly offer us, and the fun we have playing with them, their endearing antics often trump the most hilarious comedy shows on TV.
I discovered this rib tickling video the other day and just about fell off my chair laughing. I had to make sure that our cats didn't get a chance to view it, as giving them any further ideas that might build their rather extensive repertoire of pilfering items around our house. After all, we are still missing a few watches, eye glasses and other items that we have had to replace. I imagine when it is time for us to move, we will eventually find them under the fridge or the stove. Our cats are such brilliant little thieves.
I am positive you will get your daily laughter and "awwwww" quotients while watching some of these fabulous felonies spontaneously performed by a wide variety of representatives of the animal kingdom. But what I found most comical are the expressions on the faces of those folks who are being brazenly robbed in broad daylight, out in the open, not at gun-point either, without even a hint of remorse or guilt.
The "Animals that Steal" video was uploaded to YouTube by NC576. I have to remind myself to send a note of appreciation very soon.
