I would call what our cats used to do antics vs stunts...
Menew (my brother named him not me!) - when he wanted to come in he would climb up the screen door and start shaking the door. When we opened the wood door we'd see the cat hanging on the screen door looking at us at eye-level. I think we even had to open the screen door, go outside and lift him off the screen. Nutty cat!
Sinbad (again... my brother named him) - he loved plastic. At Christmas we'd be sitting on the couch and the cat would go under the tree, pick up a package of men's underwear or socks, and walk right past us with his prize in his mouth. If we didn't take it from him, he'd hide it.
Sinbad and Sailor - when they were both under 10 weeks old, they jumped onto the counter, dragged a bone onto the floor, and then dragged it under my bed. I came home for a visit and asked my parents why my room stunk! Decaying meat on bone under bed. The funny thing was - one cat was so small he fit in a shirt pocket and other was only twice as big. How they got on the counter is beyond me!
Sailor also stole my watch once and hid it under the couch. Didn't find that watch for a whole year!
Love the picture of the hamster!
