Yesterday, one of my earrings dropped out and disappeared. It's just one of the hoops that I leave in on a daily basis when I'm being too lazy to pick out a pair of dangles in the morning. I figured it had washed down the drain while I was washing my hair - no big deal, I'd spend the $2 on a new pair.
A couple hours later, I see Deuce running around in the kitchen trying to pick something up in his mouth. This is not unusual as he will sniff/play with/try to eat pretty much anything. I've heard too many horror stories of kitties ending up at the vet having eaten something they shouldn't so I immediately went to retrieve his new "toy", just to find my missing earring under his paw. If we didn't have a scavenger kitty around the house, guaranteed I would never have found it. So, thanks Deuce. Your incessant kitten curiosity is very handy indeed.
