Wanted Alive

We have an update to yesterday's post on the Temptations thief. We were just about to reveal the identity, when we suddenly and inexplicably lost the internet connection.

S, S & S, we're not sure. We assume Dr. Buddy needs counseling, but we're not sure if his medical degree includes giving counseling.Unfortunately, as of now he's on the scent of another feather for his stethoscope.

But this post is about busting the thief. We don't have to reveal the name to Jan. Not only did she figure it out on her own but last night she busted him right smack in the act. Yesterday Jan moved the treats to where they couldn't be reached by any of us. She heard the rustling, otherwise he would have gone undetected, as he was precariously perched high in the shelves where no cat should have been able to teeter. And barely reached by Jan. Only somehow our most daring and sure-footed gynmast managed to reach them.

Did you guess? No, it wasn't mice. And claiming a burglar would be as ludicrous as Buddy's claim a burglar stole Jan's nine warm yeast rolls at Thanksgiving time.

Yep, Percy is the culprit. Caught red-pawed with another empty bag of treats last night. This time a bag of Whisker Lickins Tartar Control. Guess he wants to be a fat boy with good teeth.

As you know, Percy is our best typist. And he is the reason our internet connection suddenly died yesterday, just as we were about to reveal the truth. Today he claims to be contrite, but we heard him searching the house this morning and crying outside the closet where the treats are now hidden. We'll probably never get another treat again. Jan will forget they're there. So Percy will be indebted to us forever.

This evening (Saturday) Jan heard something falling into the litter pan and arrived just in time to see how Percy reached those treats yesterday. And even worse, he was returning for a pack of DOG treats he'd snitched and stashed there.

Keep typing, Percy. The Funny Farm detectives are watching your every move. And so is Jan, although we wouldn't worry about her. She'll forget. Worry about us. We outnumber you.


  1. Uh oh Percy! Seems like you were caught! Gulp, deny, deny, deny!

  2. Percy. Who would have thought... Naughty boy.

    (We think you're cool!)

  3. Percy! That is funny!! Good job!

  4. Percy you need 10 out of 10 for keeping on trying.. Just remember to watch your back.. Hugs GJ xx

  5. IF we was PERCY we would be very worried. Not sharing with your siblings isn't nice. Out foxing the beans is OK. ~AFSS

  6. Woooo,

    caught red paw-ded!

    Fat cat with good teeth is a funny one ... but not fat cat wanting to be a dog! (coming back for dog treats u say?!)

    Licks and wags

  8. Oh no Percy, the posse is on the look out, best lay low for a while!

  9. Don't ya just hate it when you get busted? Happens here ALL the time..Love A+A

  10. Merely circumstantial evidence.

  11. Uh oh, busted. We have to admit that we admire a good thievery though. It's fun for a while, but then one has to move on we guess. Thank you for your get well purrs!

  12. I could not sleep last night thinking about the culprit!
    Percy! Percy!
    Kisses and hugs

  13. Oh Percy, I am so sorry that they are all on to you. You forgot the golden rule: Don't Get Caught.
    If you want I was going to cover for you but looke like they got you red pawed. Wow! Now you will only get treats when Jan thinks they should be given out. Bummer.
    Hey if you need to get away come on over I will hide you out. Plus the mom here isn't putting the treat up, but I do have to add then are in a jar with a pop up lid which I cannot figure out. Maybe you could have a clue?

  14. oops Percy. Too bad you got caught!

  15. Percy I think you need a good lawyer at this point! That is so not right to think you did something bad!!!

  16. hello evrybuddy its dennis the vizsla dog hay ar yoo shoor??? ar yoo shoor it wuz not my brother tucker??? ok bye

  17. Looks like it's game over, Percy. :(

    Now you have to be on your best behavior...

  18. I for one applaud him! I love those tempatations! Haha! By the way, how can I get that "Feed Hungry Dogs" side-bar link? Or even better - the feed hungry cats one? I answered trivia for both species (I'm an agreeable guy), and I think it's a great idea!

  19. Well ya kinda gotta admire Percy's agility and cunning. He'd make a GReat Golden Retriever; he could be designated as the Temptations Retriever. We're sure that as ms. Jan feels better she'll be dispensing treats as normal to the non-guilty parties.
