LOL, I think they like being caught! Monkey (he was an outdoor kitty and had to fend for himself) will practically kill himself trying to get to ANYTHING I have. He always looks at me like "OMG I'm starving and haven't eaten in DAYS - I think I may be dying soon" even if it's right after he ate. I had a piece of peanut butter toast the other day, and he snatched it off my plate and ended up getting peanut butter all over him after taking off with it. He didn't seem to mind, but it was a mess to cleanup!
