I have discovered that getting into desk drawers is really not as difficult as the average Fluffy thinks.
I first discovered this when I saw the humans put a bag of the balls I mentioned in my last article, in a desk drawer. I was immediately excited by the prospect of this great treasure trove but was initially unable to figure out what to do about it.
Then, inspiration struck.
I noticed that the handle was curved and attached to the drawer face at both ends, forming a closed loop. There was easily enough space between the handle and the drawer face for me to slip a paw. Standing on my hind legs, I immediately did so and, with some persistent effort, managed to wiggle the drawer open a pawlength or two.
Suddenly, I realized that two of the humans were watching. I was unwilling to have them see that I had mastered their absurdly simple device, for fear that they would move the bag of balls to a more difficult location, and immediately ceased my efforts to reach the balls. I pretended to give up my efforts and went elsewhere in the house. The humans soon went outside and I realized that I now had a golden opportunity. I snuck back downstairs, wiggled the drawer open until I had plenty of room, then fished the bag of balls out and on to the floor.
I soon had a virtual riot of fun with the balls and soon had them distributed throughout the house. As we all know, humans are not very bright and to this day, I don't believe they ever figured out that it was me who opened the drawer and took the balls.
