Every morning, the cat leaves his family’s present in the same spot
Charlie has always been a very funny and active cat. His family adopted him when he was just 12 weeks old. Around six months ago, everyone began noticing that he always left a toy in the same spot before they got out of bed. In reality, Charlie was actually leaving gifts for his family, although they were first unaware of this.
Charlie’s mother, Beth Tivol, told The Dodo, “At first, all we noticed was that every so often, we’d locate one of his favorite toys near the top of the basement stairs, which we had to cross to walk into the kitchen every morning.” “We figured he’d been playing with it all night and just left it there,” the author said. One of his toys eventually started appearing there almost every morning. We found a way to bypass them.
Charlie became upset with his family’s lack of gratitude for his gifts and made the decision to increase his efforts. He started leaving more than just his toys, he started leaving things he found all around the house, generally in the same spot.
Things that weren’t his regular toys started to arrive eventually, according to Tivol. “A hair band. the pen’s cap. A twist-tie that had fallen on the ground the previous evening was nowhere to be seen.” I’d like one more hair tie. It was useful, but we figured they were just little things that had caught his attention. On days when he must have had something truly spectacular, we would find him waiting expectantly at the doorway. After a few more weeks of this, we finally figured it out. He was leaving gifts for us!
When Charlie’s family wakes up in the morning, they immediately head downstairs to see what Charlie has left for them. There are no restricted items, and Charlie seems to explore the house every evening for the perfect, most unusual gifts to give to his family. One of his talent is electrical tape, a McDonald’s straw, drill bits, and a green ribbon, ball of yarn, as well as a pair of shoes.
His family says they have never seen any of his gifts in the house before and often doesn’t know where he gets them from. Tivol stated, “I think the bow came from under the couch, and I know the drill bits were on the workbench next to our drill press.”
Charlie seems to be so grateful to his family for saving him that he feels driven to show his gratitude to them every day through silly gifts that he almost certainly won’t ever stop giving. Tivol said that getting out of bed in the morning was now a very different experience. Do you have anything for us today, Charlie? Is it one of his toys or a personal item for him? Actually, the suspense is both exciting and relaxing. We are really appreciative of our Charlie Kitten, and it is a wonderful way to start the day.
