The Dumpster Diver

Meows from Mudpie!

It's a closely guarded secret but I have a bit of a reputation as a dumpster diver. Some of my favorite things to play with are crumpled pieces of paper such as receipts and candy wrappers, and I'm horrified when Mommy tosses such treasures in the trash!

On more than one occasion I've been caught pawing at something in the wastebasket but Mommy was without a camera.

Well, the other day she walked into the kitchen just in time to catch me taking things one step further...

Mudpie, I confess, I would totally be a dumpster diver too... but I have no idea where my human put the trash can! There must be some really special stuff in it for her to be hiding it from me.

Haha, did you find something tasty?!!

Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own paws, huh, Mudpie? Well, I hope you got some great loot out of there! Purrs!

mom hides our trash can since some torbie likes to pull out tissues and shred them

Mum doesn't like it if we delve in the rubbish bin under the sink.

No matter what that's called, it looks like you're having a great time, Mudpie! :)

Totally busted! And you are not alone. Popoki absolutely adores all sorts of trash, especially the wrappers that cover string cheese!

My mommy keeps her waste basket in the cabinet under the sink so I can't go dumpster diving.

Hahahaha! One's trash is another's treasures :)

Robin Mudge said...

You are so funny, Mudpie! Manna and Dexter would agree that way too many treasures (including treat wrappers) end up in the trash. I hope you found something really fun!
