We're not quite sure what she wanted with the marble chess pawn....but maybe it's like a message to us? We are just pawns in her little game?
When I showed my nephew what had been gathered by our industrious feline, his quick wit came up with the answer: "She's like MacGyver kitty....a potato, some wire, metal screws...she's building a bomb and she's gonna blast her way out of here!" This comment has made me laugh several times. But then today...she showed up under the dining room table with this.
It's the drill attachment used for heavy duty sanding or filing metal....
Call the bomb squad - she's paw'd and dangerous.
