Malcolm Steals Again!

Recommended Posts

Got home from the grocery store. I use those fabric bags with the handles. When I get home I set the bag on the floor because lifting and putting it on the counter hurts my back. Then I take the groceries out and put them away. I noticed there was a bag of Ramen noodles missing. Did I forget to put in the bag at the store? I thought oh well I need to pay more attention when I go through the self service line. Put everything away and went in the living room. There was Malcolm tearing apart a package of Ramen noodles!!!!! That little brat!!!!! There was a struggle to get it away from him he wasn't giving it up. What is so enticing about dry brittle noodles? That wouldn't taste good to me. I was going to clean up the mess of noodles on the rug. Malcolm took care of that. I think he is taking advantage that I don't watch him like a hawk all the time. The little brat.

Malcolm is becoming a serial food thief!  I swear, the way these guys steal food you'd think none of them ever get fed.  

Dry noodles don't seem very appetizing though.  Buffy has offered to show Malcolm how to select the really good items from the grocery bag.:P

As pkcrossley wrote, re Malcolm's previous theft, he figured out how to get you to get up and go to the fridge... Now Just wait until he learns how to use the microwave...

...Nuked chicken breasts with barbecue sauce and a side of Ramen noodles!?

I'm truly sorry I am laughing so hard. 

That is one thing my girls haven't stole yet. Kelly will check the bags to see if there is a toy for her; she will lay and guard the bags until I put them up, but she hasn't taken anything thing that wasn't hers.  

Kelly's second favorite toys have always been the ones that have a little bit of rubber on them and that crinkly stuff in them. year before last DH and I combined Christmas shopping with grocery shopping and had gotten Kelly and Prissy there usual favorite type of toy well not thinking I picked up a 2 toys for  babies in the family and it was a stuffed toys with rubber paws and had crinkly stuff in it, kinda like the toys I buy for the dogs. I had forgotten they were in the bags. I didn't think a thing about it until I started putting up the groceries.

Neither one of them touched those toys. It was the first bag they sniffed and passed right by it like they new it wasn't for them, about the sixth bag had their toys they took them and off they went playing. I would love to know how they new it wasn't theirs because they were so similar.  DH thought it might be the smell of the toys so he had me get 2 baby toys for the dogs the following week to see what they would do, and they took them.

gee, malcolm really has your number. some day you'll figure out how he gave you a bad back. i have had the same situation --bad back, hauled-in groceries. my dog redmon would immediately go through the bag to take what he wanted, and whatever was left would be rifled through by the cats. hm, what to do? food lockers. since i don't cook, i use the oven as a food locker. remove the racks and it will hold as many groceries as you want till you feel like putting them away. i was also fortunate enough to have a medium-size microwave go kaput. detach the electrical cord. poof, another food locker. those kinds of things --ramen noodles, bread, crackers, cookies, all the easy pickin's-- that you don't feel like hoisting over head, at least not when you first get home, into the food locker of your choice. i know, too obvious --malcolm will figure it all out. but not for a couple of days.

What's with the dry noodles that is so good I wonder? Angus loves uncooked macaroni and spaghetti. I spilled a little one time when I was preparing some and ever since then he stands right by me waiting for some to fall on floor.

Lola won't eat anything 'plain' - crackers, pasta, bread, potato chips, french fries. Oh wait - she does like rice, but that's probably because it usually has chicken or beef with it. :D

Are you a raw foodist, Pk?
