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.
