This is a ripped up pile of twenty dollar bills. Four of them, to be exact.
Let it soak in.
The circumstances under which this financial crime was perpetrated are unclear. My purse, with $80 in cash inside of it, was sitting on the living room floor. I was in the back bedroom. I am 99.9% sure that Betelgeuse was the ultimate destructive force, as she has a history of chewing up paper when she's in a good mood. But these bills came from my purse, and she's never been a bag forager. So that means either Lulu or Kira, or maybe even both, helped steal the $80 from my purse before Betel thoroughly ripped it to shreds. I say thoroughly because she even pulled out some of the security threads.
