What is the Color of Your Litterbox? Cat Burglar

Although there are many perils in breaking the law, especially with legislation like Three Strikes in California, there really is no reason an enterprising kitty should not consider a successful career in crime. After all, how do you think Cat Burglar was coined?

Depending on your neighborhood, the amazing rewards of this job can keep you purring for days. And you’ll find the selection of items you can paw is quite broad. You need not limit yourself to precious stones and metals – after all what’s wrong with a lovely fish skeleton or an exciting leathery, petrified bat that someone found in their basement and tried unsuccessfully to give to the garbage collector for several weeks? You’ll find all these items have surprisingly good street value with your friendly neighborhood fencer.

Another plus is that you’ll find your slinky ways and ability to see in the dark an incredible asset that sets you head, shoulders and tails above other petty criminals of lesser animals.

Consider this career if you;

  • Demonstrate extreme patience
  • Tremble from excitement and make an “eh eh eh” sound when you see something you want
  • Can spot a D flawless from across the room
