I'm in here because I don't want to be bothered


Dante likes his alone time. When he wants some space, he goes into the soft carrier and takes a quiet time out. I couldn't resist taking a picture. Though I could tell he wasn't in a photo mood.

I've had a terrible week. Two days ago, someone stole my wallet while I was at Starbucks. I was sitting at a table, and someone went into my purse and took my wallet without me noticing. I didn't realize it was gone for an hour, and when I did realize, I called my bank and they had charged over $1700 worth of charges on my debit / credit card. This card withdraws money right out of my checking account. I felt faint. They also charged $300 on my Gap credit card. $2000 worth of fraudulent charges in one hour!!! Both are currently under investigation, I'm just crossing my fingers that I get my money back from the bank. This whole experience made me lose my trust in people. I hate that feeling.

Oh no!!!! That is terrible, they just had a bit about that on the news showing ladies putting their bag strap over their chairs. It is out of their sight but not to someone who wants to get something from it. Hopefully the bank will help you. I do not sign my credit card... I write, check ID...on the signature line with a permanent marker. I don't want anyone to be able to copy my signature. Crossing our my fingers and the boys are crossing their pawz for you!=^Y^=the Cat Street Boyz and (MOM)Holly

Pss- we are so so sorry about your week as well. People make it really hard these days not to hate the things they do and the way they are becoming. We know a few people this has happened too and the bank did the right thing! we are hoping and having faith that you will not be punished by the bank for someone elses wrong doing.

Oh no...Teri lost her wallet twice but luckily good samaritans returned it with nothing missing! How awful and I hope that life can get back to normal for you soon...some people are soo bad, Teri says that's one reason she likes blogging, cuz everyone of her friends here is nice!

Hey, we have a tent and a toy just like yours! Teri uses the tent in the car for us sometimes. so we have room for a bed and a little litterbox

I'm glad that Dante has a place to go where he can be alone and feel secure.

I'm so sorry your wallet got stolen. I am very, very ANGRY at the BAD person who did that to you. I hope they get caught.

What a horrible thing to have happen! I'd have been WAY overdrawn for that! I hope everything works out. Although the idea the Cat Street Boyz gave is wonderful--do you know how many times I have had clerks not even look at the back of my cards? I have a photo debit card too and I don't think anyone even bothers to look any more. Sigh.

Dante we totally understand the need to be alone sometimes.

Poppy Q said...

Ohhh we are sorry to hear about that, we would hate to have our wallet stolen, aren't their some nasty people out there.

Good luck - we hope the police find who it is, and they get in trouble. We also hope you get your money back.

Dante has picked a good spot and I bet you wish you could crawl in there with him huh? :( Poor Mimi!
I'm so sorry that happened to you! I sure hope they catch the jerk who took you wallet. Something like that can just leave you shaking and wary for a long time. What is wrong with people? Grr...
Take care okay?
Gentle Hugs,
Lorianna

We fink mean beans suck!

Aoise said...

Sorry to hear about your rotten week. Perhaps you should get in with Dante. By the time you come out, the bank might have refunded the fraudulent withdrawals.

SophieKitty said...

We feel bad about what happened to your mom. What a pain and hassle. I hope you mom gets all her money back soon.

Oh and Dante, that's a cool hang out spot.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, no! We just read that the bank finally returned your money, but what a horrible thing to happen. It's a shame crooks don't put as much effort into honest work as they do into stealing from others.
