The Assassination of Little Tree

Cats and plants are sometimes not a good mix.

I woke up one morning last week to find this crime scene in the kitchen. The prime suspects were sound asleep when picked up, literally, for questioning. It seems to be true that it is the guilty who sleep soundly. There was evidence in the water bowl that the culprit had attempted to clean up afterwards. The tree has been moved to the laundry room and after a few pints of soil is in stable condition.

I managed to survive last week's birthday celebration..barely. I will try and keep up some postings a little more frequently. Bookwise I have been working my way through Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer detective series...as one critic pointed out Macdonald essentially wrote the same book over and over but it was a very good book.

Trouble with your "fur children" Dexter? Pehaps you need a pair or two of cat handcuffs?

Dexter said...

One is a smash and grab/escape artist and the other seems to be more of the embezzling type.

Watch out if you have any aloe plants too. Cats love to eat them.

No aloe. A friend suggesting getting some of the pet plants for them to chew on at the Co-op.
