I don't know, cats are pretty clever ...  
Fingers point to cat in Beanie Baby mystery
Michael Clancy, 55, who owns 7-year-old Gertie, said Thursday that he still wants to know where his cat got the Beanie Babies. "They're not going into Toys R Us, and they're not ordering them off the Internet," Clancy said.

Of a picture mystery book I own and used to use to fill time when I was a substitute elementary school teacher.

I have a theory (which simply proves I have already thought too much about it): the broken window was probably an unrelated accident (and they fail to mention if it was a) a big enough hole to allow entry, or b) anywhere near a door such that the hole gave access to the lock), maybe neighborhood kids playing ball or throwing things at each other. Opening + cat = squatter. Cat + bag of anything = spread out anything.

The neighbor is just plain weird- "Sure, Eigenberg said, he does keep Beanie Babies on his property -- a bag full in the garage, which he says he dips into from time to time when he wants to hand out a toy to a neighborhood child." Creepy even. Note to my daughter: NEVER take a Beany Baby from a guy in the neighborhood! That's just... Ugh!

And when Gertie was in captivity, some other neighborhood animal went in the window (presuming it's still broken), and continued to pull these things out. He claims not to have had that many, but it had become local news even in a gossipy way, couldn't other people have helped supply the dolls?
