A few days ago we received a package of goodies we’d won from Phoebe, Mom Ellen and the crew at 15AndMeowing. Mom opened it and checked out all the contents. Then she put everything back into the package and said we could have the items as soon as she could set up for some photos. All we can say now is, “What was she thinking?”

The following morning when the humans came downstairs to fix our breakfast they discovered this:

The Real Perpetrators


That’s right! The flat Cat Scouts visiting us left their paw prints all over the crime scene. This gang of hooligans’ leader is none other than the one looking sideways in the right back. That’s Einstein The Mastermind from Tomcat Commentary by Tim. The other members of the gang include his brother Timmy (back left), Ali from Musings of a Senior Kitty (in front of Timmy) and Einstein’s main squeeze, Shoko from The Canadian Cats.

It’s totally our mom’s fault that this happened. Einstein does have a taste for the nip and is known to have a problem with impulse control. We say our Mom set him up by leaving that open package on the kitchen counter so that the aroma of nip could waft throughout the house.

As the perpetrators of the crime are all visitors to our house, they will not be reprimanded nor receive any punishment. That will be at the discretion of their humans when they return to their respective homes.

This case is now closed. And Kitties Blue thank our visitors for liberating our prezzies.

p.s. Mom is praying that flat Mauricio is on his best behavior while visiting his friends. He’s not all that well-behaved at home so she’s worried about what he might get up to when away. She’s hoping that his recent appointment as Chief of Security at Cat Scout University will convince him that he needs to set a good example for all Scouts.
