Among Thieves

Magic rejoined our family last Sunday (Mystic is enjoying a week without him). We had to pick him up early because he had, um, an appointment. You see, Magic has gingivitis. His breath smells like nothing I have ever smelled before. It's beyond horrendous. The vet felt that if he didn't get his teeth cleaned, he'd lose them at a young age --- the crazy guy is only two.

So, while millions of Americans don't have access to health care, our ridiculously spoiled cat got his teeth cleaned. I know.

Since Sunday, Magic has been making his presence known in many ways: his usual late night howling, constantly being RIGHT.THERE., and attempting to squash the baby. I can't tell you how many times I've said "Mister! We don't sit on babies in this house." It's a little strange.

Another fun aspect of Magic's return is this:


While it may look as if he's gently kissing Nathan, or perhaps EATING HIM, that's not quite what's happening here.


He's simply stealing the baby's pacifier and taking it back to his lair, erm, thermal mat. He thinks because it's white on the faux snow leopard fur that I won't notice. No such luck, buddy. I saw in your mouth as you carried it away.

Oh my god that is so frigging adorable. I love cats, and their ingenuity.

And I've heard about cats having dental problems. I think there is special food you can give them if they're prone to it.

ROTFLMAO!!! I am laughing so much I'm crying here. That cat!! The Pacifier Theif!! OMGAh, this is too funny!!!!

We had to have one of our cats' gums curretted twice. Dental surgery on a cat. Totally worth it, but he was so dopey after the surgery - poor baby.

A very funny post! What did you do with the pacifier? You sound like a very relaxed mother, for a first time baby. Most first time moms would freak out, chuck the cat and the pacifier, sterilize EVERYTHING...and never show pictures of it! (How cute that kitty put the pacifier on a camoflauge blanket!)

That, my dear, is the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Yeah, my outside cats would steal my sons pacifier when he was outside too. It is Hilarious to see a cat sucking on a paci. Glad my cats aren't the only odd ones! :o)

Hahahahahaha. Magic is absolutley fantastic. Who would have thought that pacifiers would have been the toy du jour?! Man, wait until he discovers the nipples for the bottles...that should be fun. :)
