Things always get a little crazy around here when my husband leaves on a fishing trip. My cats are used to being fed at exactly 5:30 am. Period. But it is my husband who gets up that early. I try to sleep in till...gasp...6:30. But by then the door is being pounded by a battering ram of paws. And the pitiful cries could probably wake the neighbors. I don't know. I've never asked! It was almost 7:00 am central time. I just didn't feel like getting up. Darn cats. Then there was a huge crash. The sh#@ had hit the fan.
I yelled my unrepeatable go to phrase and raced downstairs. I knew my orchid had flown to the ground. I envisioned orchid bark spread clear into the bathroom. But everything was in place. Spooky. Except the curious coupon lying casually on the floor. Hmmm. I knew immediately what had happened. I haven't been watching Sherlock Holmes on tpt for nothing!
This is where I'd placed the coupon the night before. Everything was eerily in place. Who could possess the powers to leap up there silently and precisely. The only disruption was the coupon slowly floating to the floor. Hmmm. Do you see the mysterious image in the mirror? Look closely...
I looked upwards. This armoir is 7 feet off the ground. But the desk with the coupon is a 5 foot jump. Up.
Two of my prized ceramic pieces were tipped over. This mild crash sent Akua sailing to the ground. 7 feet down. And that was what was so loud. I know it was Akua because my husband has come down from the bedroom before only to discover Akua Flying through the air at the exact moment he entered the room. AAAARRRGGGHHH!
You guessed it. One more cat-tasrophy down. 200,000 left to go. For more cat crimes visit www.gattinamycats.blogspot.com
