The Black Hole of Jingly Balls

Every jingly ball we gave to the cats would disappear. We thought maybe Chew had a stash, but then he would run around looking for them. Shade isn't hiding them out of spite because he's too busy stealing all my damn mulch. We'd occasionally look under furniture for them, but it was no use. It was like they were just gone.

Today I spent hours cleaning and systematically looking for the damn things. I mean, where can you hide a dozen jingling balls? They aren't exactly subtle. Especially at 3 am.

Now, after Banik getting home and us having dinner on the couch, the last place we cleaned was under the couch. So appearently that happens to be the only place where Chewie can't get in to retrieve the jingly balls. >.<

Can you find all 12?!
As an added bonus, we also found the pieces that Chewie has been breaking off of the miniblinds. He makes life... interesting.

Evolution of the Household

The article has statistics for each decade from the 1950's to 2000's. They aren't terribly consistant, but it is interesting nonetheless.
