This morning we are having our coffee and hear Cali making weird noises by her cage. We go over to investigate and there are a bunch of little white papers. Some are crinkly (they make noise).
We look over by the back door and there are more crinkly papers. Some are clear.
Fern: What do you think this is?
Norm: Looks like the clear part of an envelope.
We glance over to Pellet's cage and there is a tiny piece of evidence. Norm grabs it: This looks like a receipt.
Immediately I put all the clues together and rush over to the den (where we have a basket where we put paper trash just as junk mail, receipts, etc). I look in it - EMPTY. Completely empty (might I add that the basket was about half full last night).
Needless to say I take a closer look at the carpet in the den and in fact there are more crinkly papers and more white papers...
I've never had to worry about this basket because they've never gotten into it in the past... Moral of the story: never say never.
