Dmitry, the Russian Blue Retriever?

So, I've shared some of my cat, Dmitry's eccentricities here before ... his ability to fetch, his hoarding of old Fisher Price Sesame Street characters, his destruction of my Christmas decorations, and why he is crazy.  Today's story really has me concerned.

My son came down with his first cold of the year. We dug our way out of the house yesterday to get him some cold medicine yesterday. I bought the kind that loosens everything up for him. Anyway....if you have or care for kids, you know the liquid medicines come with a special measuring cup (we always used a spoon...I wonder if that means we didn't get enough or if we got too much?). This particluar brand measures in mL, rather than tsp, so the cup is special for this brand of medicine.

Ok, following me? 

So, I'm at the computer this morning, doing my makeup and reading email and I realized that I left the medicine bottle up in my bathroom, so I sent Matt to get the bottle so I could give him some of the medicine before school. He returned a few minutes later with the bottle, but without the cup. Well, he's nine, so I figured, the missing cup was just a slight - he probably didn't realize that I would need the cup. So, I asked him to go get the cup and he say, "I didn't see one". Well, we already tease him for having "little boy vision", so I realize that I have to go find it myself.

One second later, something fell from the staircase landing right above my computer and landed with a dull CLINK on the keyboard. I picked it up and .... it was the cup. THE CUP! The goofy mL measuring cup literally fell from the sky, onto my keyboard. Stunned, I look up and there is Dmitry, sitting on the landing, head between the posts on the staircase above me.

No kidding.

For real.

The crazy cat RETRIEVED the cup. 
This cat is SOMETHING!
Good kitty!

  1. OR, he stole the cup (i.e., Fisher Price characters) and figured you'd be on to him sooner or later so he thought he'd come out ahead if he acted like the hero!!! Smart kitty!!! C'mon...look at that smug look!!!
