The Gum Gnome

I’m guarding that teal pack of gum with my life!

Somewhere in our condo community lives the Evil Gum Gnome. TW is sure of it. It may even live in our condo unit! Actually she suspects the Evil Gum Gnome works in the community. I suspect she's #senile.

This all started out as a joke. In fact, I hope it still IS a joke or we’re in big trouble. TW had a package of chewing gum sitting on a cabinet for ages. One day she decided she wanted a piece and was shocked at what she found. There were only five out of 15 sticks remaining. She axed Pop f he had any and he said he’d taken one or two. She’d only had a few or so she claimed. What happened to the other pieces? Was there a Gum Gnome?

Last week she went to get one of the Earl Grey tea bags she had just bought and saw the package was over half empty. She knew it wasn’t Pop or me cos we don’t drink tea. The Evil Gum Gnome had branched out into the tea franchise. Will it stop at nothing?

I’m just lucky that the Evil Gum Gnome doesn’t own a cat cos so far none of MY food or treats has gone unaccounted for. Actually, the Evil Gum Gnome is lucky cos if it was to try to walk off with MY food, we would be burying this Evil Gum Gnome. You can make book on that.


Anyone who’s read this blog for any length of time already know that TW is rowing with one oar. If you didn’t, you certainly do now. Try not to be too hard—*stifles a giggle*—on TW in the comments. She reads them all.

If the FF or Temptations start disappearing, take matters into your own paws and wipe him out!!!

Uh, we will tread lightly around TW, CK. We dare not say anything even *remotely* suggestive of #senility because frankly my Human is about 100 years older than yours and she doesn't want to open that topic even a tiny crack. So we say, Yeah, for sure: Gum Gnome. You bet! Sounds about right.

As far as what I can or cannot describe on a PG-rated cat blog, well all I have to say is a lot of my loyal readers' minds are in the gutter, darling! I can't imagine what all of you are thinking I could do with that spiky brush-arch, ha ha meow! No, I won't give you any hints, either. You'll just have to wonder for a few days! XOXOXOXOOX

P.S. Gum gnome??? Ha ha ha

Gattina said...

TW looks very healthy despite her taste for strange things ! My cat Arthur loves cakes !!

Austin Towers said...

I am truly shocked!!! No, not at the Gum Gnome, that's just part of the human condition. BUT TW reads your comments?????? That is outrageous!! I should report her to CRAP - the Comment Readers Anonymous Party for a complete defrag and reformatting!

Me too is glad that the Gnome leaves your treats alone :)

XOXO

Tamago said...

Oh my, how strange! You do have Evil Gum Gnome...that's the only explanation for disappearing stuff.
Glad he hasn't stolen your food, though :-) But better watch out!

Laila and Minchie said...

That Evil Gum Gnome is pretty smart especially since he knows to stay away from your foods and treats!

The Evil Gum Gnome huh? I'm just a TAD suspishus! I think that "rowing with one oar" thing is the most reasonable explanation!

Hugs, Sammy

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Ummmm a Gnome huh? Well we are glad to hear all of your food and treats are safe CK!

Mariodacat said...

Your kitty food might be next, so I'd guard that yourself CK. M still has the oar, but she's missing the rowboat.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Double check your treats every day! You never know......

Does maintenance have a key to the apartment? Maybe it was something like that.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

We feel bad for that gnome if it tries to lay a little gnomey hand on your cat food or treats. That's going to be one sorry gnome indeed.

Brian said...

We didn't know gnomes chewed gum...or drank tea for that matter.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I don't think I said last night just how adorable you look in that picture, Darling. But you do.

Sweet Purrfections said...

Mom Paula says "no comment" on TW because she has problems herself. MOL

Patty Woodland said...

Pricilla is not maaaaing anything as she was accused of stealing gum in the past. Just because she is always chewing her cud does not mean she is chewing TW's gum. That's what she maaaas anyway

The Indulged Furries said...

Sounds like you have some interesting visitors at your place. At least they're not stealing your treats.

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

hahaha! Well in that case, I think we are dealing with a gnome as well! Things ALWAYS go missing in my house!

At least the Gum Gnome didn't steal your treats ! Purrs

Mom didn't bother to stifle her giggles. She says she can totally relate. The humans must learn to pay more attention to what they do and not just sleep walk through their lives. If not, we cats are going to never stop laughing at them. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
