The Case of the Missing Hearing Aid

Missing: One of my Mom's brand new VERY EXPENSIVE hearing aids.
(quarter included in picture to show size of missing item)

Last Seen: On the kitchen table on Wednesday afternoon.

Prime Suspect: Pumpkin aka The Klepto Kitty.

Reason for Suspicion: Has a habit of jumping on the kitchen table to investigate what's on it. See previous posts regarding breakfast inspections here and here. Witnesses have seen suspect TAKE things to play with.

Suspect just looks innocent when questioned.

Kitchen floor has been searched with no results. Search continues through rest of the house...

UPDATE! After a thorough search of the house, the hearing aid was found were some of the kitties thought it would be -- under the refrigerator. I had to lie on the floor and look with a flashlight to see it waaaay in the back. Pumpkin must have whacked it hard when he was playing hockey with it!

Oh no! I like to knock things off tables, too, like earrings or money or... anything! But that's not good that the hearing aid losed! Maybe when Pumpkin is done with it it'll come back.

Not that PUmpkin had anything to do with it.

Pumpkin, we're sure you're completely innocent of any wrongdoing! Anyway, anything left laying on a table top is fair game. It is YOUR house after all and you need to check on everything.

For the person who asked, the brand name on the hearing aid is Starkey and Mom has only had it since August.

Yep, anything left out is fair game for anycat to find and play with. We need to do a more thorough search of the house to see if we can find it.

No tellin' where it is with a cat playing. Goodness we can hide things real good when we want to. Mom gets mad when we get on the table but we mostly do it at night when she is sleeping. Maybe you should fess up Pumpkin. Sounds like it's something important. Sure hope you find it.

PS Hope your Mom had a good time in Lost Wages because I hear that is a place where most people loose their wages.
