I was surprised my 2 kitties would be so desperate as to need to tear open food pouches this way and I did wonder if some other animal had been in through the flap during the night.
The following night, not being able to sleep very well I heard unusual noises from the kitchen - not the usual noises my kitties make.
Something fell down and there was a fair bit of scrabbling around.
I was scared but decided I should investigate.
I found my 2 kitties looking nervously at the kitchen and as I got nearer the thief shot past me and out of the flap.
I was right, I had caught the food thief red pawed! It was a big furry black kitty!
It took 2 food pouches out of the flap to eat later but when I looked out it ran off leaving them behind.
I have to make sure the open box of pouches are safely put into a cat proof container now!
