Oh buggery ... Wool emergency!  
I love my little Monster Cat, she is a fat bastard and licks my hair dry when I wash it, but she is a dear sweet thing. Except she is obsessed with wool. leochi  once drew a genius picture of the damage Mon can wreak with nothing more than a ball of wool and a room full of furniture, but alas, it was lost when she moved her art over to Deviantart.

Normally, this is charming. The good Cookie Cat comes and miaows at me when Mon is being naughty and stealing wool, and we all have a good laugh.

Except right now I am most of the way through a minidress for treacle_tartlet 's Small Girl, and the last ball of white wool has been stolen. It will be somewhere in the house, but this house has a lot of nooks and crannies that a cat can fit into and I cannot. I imagine we will find it when we move. The wool seems only to be available from a nice company in the US, despite being a New Zealand brand. If anyone has a ball of Naturally Perendale in 53 white, I'll swap you something nice for it!

Damn you, Monny! If only you could talk! (… you would say: 'Is that chicken? Do you have any chicken in that bag? What about that one?')

Of course she has!

It's either her or someone has broken in and pinched one ball of wool, which seems less likely ...

LOLOLOL the cat stole your wool? That's adorable. Uh, I mean, bad kitty!

If I had but one extra ball, all would be fine! Oh well. It's going to cost me $15 postage to get one ball sent from the US, so I may as well order some of the alpaca they have online as well.

when you do move, she'll bring all sorts of treasures out, that she needs to pack!

It's a bit better than the old Minnie Cat, who used to bring us rats that we did not always find in a timely fashion. She wondered why her open window privileges were revoked ...

I'm not really a cat person. Now I have another reason for it. Or maybe not. ROFL.

They're very sweet cats. Mon believes the wool is here for her, because we love her, so we buy balls of it and then I make interesting things happen from some of the balls while leaving others for her to carry around. Cookie believes Mon is very naughty and needs correction.

So common is what your Monster Cat is doing that it is well acknowledged as being "pica", which is an obsessive compulsive disorder that many animals (including humans) have that involves eating things that are not specifically edible.

Wool pica is common in cats, particularly Siamese cats.

Oh she never *eats* the wool, rather, she winds it around every item of furniture in a room, or cuddles it, or plays football with it, or takes it for little walks with it held in her teeth, sometimes she tosses it in the air ... when she is in a special mood she will play fetch with me tossing the wool and her bringing it back to me. But aside from some spit and claw tear, it's fine afterwards!

HA HA HA! Oh, I shouldn't laugh. It's just that I KNOW, SO WELL. xoxoxo Hope you find it!

I fear it is gone forever. We have a few very large shelving units and such that a fat little cat can squeeze into and behind, but a human cannot. The last time one was moved, treasures appeared! Still, her amusement factor is worth more than a ball of wool, and I can get one from the US for only a small fortune ;-)

Tempt her with another bit of wool and surreptitiously follow her to see if she leads you to her stash.
