Is your Hav a sock stealer?

I know our fur babies love all things paper, but mine love to steal socks. My Maggie, in particular, has figured out how to jump on the kitchen chair when I'm not watching and jump on the table and steal clean laundry and go hide with it. She's a little acrobat. My other Hav isn't as agile as her to do that, but he'll happily take whatever she brings down to the floor

That little face makes me smile too much to get mad at her. I'm just going to have to be more creative about where I put the laundry I'm folding!

Anyone else have sneaky laundry thieves?

When I'm folding laundry he sits there eyeing and just waiting for his chance to slip a sock away while I'm not looking. I can't leave a pair of socks out in his reach (or that he can climb onto something to get at) because he'll get them and I'll find my socks in the middle of the floor later. He doesn't destroy or wreck them in any way, but he really feels he must have them!

Leo, poor fellow, is the "victim" of years of experience so his opportunity to shred paper, steal socks, and partake in mischief has been seriously curtailed. However, we have had about 3 dogs through the years that would snatch a sock almost of your foot! Porter, our 70 lb. mutt, swallowed about 4 socks during his puppyhood. Hydrogen peroxide was administered to assist him in returning the socks to their rightful owner - ewwwww!

In the winter she will steal gloves out of my coat pocket if I leave it hanging on the back of the chair. I think I posted a video of that last winter. Caught her right in the act!

Henry waits while I peel the socks off and then steals. The smellier the better for some reason.
