The Sock Thief

We have a thief in our home - a thief of socks. No, it's not the dryer. We do occasionally lose socks to the dryer, but the sock thief of which I speak is Ga'hoole Girl's cat, Sophie. Sophie is a cute black and white cat who has been part of our family for 4 years. We got her when she was a kitten and our other two cats were about 3 years old. Sophie quickly established herself as the dominant cat. She is still dominant, but she doesn't terrorize the other cats too often these days. Her hobby now is to pick up socks and carry them around the house. I have learned to get the socks folded soon after they come out of the dryer, or single socks end up all over the house. Lately, though, Sophie has taken to going into our closets and getting pairs of clean socks which she then carries around the house and drops randomly. We were out of town for less than 48 hours and came home to find at least 5 pairs of socks scattered around the living room, dining room, and stairwell. She's really crazy, I think.

In our house, the missing socks are usually found under the covers when I change the girls' sheets. We have sock-eating sheets, I guess!
