Okay, so I've been having this issue with Jack opening the cabinets and getting inside. He usually only does it when I'm in the kitchen, either cooking or putting away groceries. Lately though, I've been finding him sniffing around the cabinets, pawing them open and poking his head inside. I would always discourage him, but never really took it too seriously. I just thought all he wanted to do was be in a small, dark space, as cats love to do that for whatever reason.
Well, I walked into the kitchen this afternoon and you would not believe what I saw. An ENTIRE box of Oatmeal Cream pies opened, destroyed, and scattered all over the floor. My overpriced organic cereal ripped open and scattered into tiny, confetti-like pieces all over the floor. And there, in the middle of it, sleeping like a baby, was Jack.
I got very angry. I know you are not supposed to discipline a cat after the fact, but I did give him a very stern talking-to and I shut him up in the dark bathroom while I cleaned.
I noticed that some of the cream pies, the ones that weren't destroyed and smashed into the tile on my floor, had been bitten into. Is there anything I should worry about that he could have ingested? If anything, he probably had several bites of the pies and some of the cereal flakes, but if there's something potentially dangerous that I'm not yet aware of, I'd like to know. (Other than the fact that he smells like a giant oatmeal cookie, of course.)
