Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails

CYNDI:  How well I remember the day of the crime.  Jan returned from shopping and put everything away.  Except ...

BUDDY:  Except for one large bag, which sat on the floor near the front door.  Invitingly, tantalizingly sat near the front door.

RUSTY:   Jan didn't know what caused her to realize something was wrong.  Perhaps it was that the room was so quiet.

MERCI:  Yes, that is one possibility. But perhaps it was the pile of kibble on the floor that gave away the crime.

MICAH:  Or perhaps it was the two dogs munching on kibble that gave them away.  The canines are not served lunch and certainly not served on a mat by the front door.

SAM:  It wasn't my idea, but how could I resist those inviting morsels of kibble lying there just begging to be scarfed down?  It was Marcus who tore the hole in the bag.  I just helped him clean up the mess.

MARCUS:  Yes, I was the culprit.  I admit it.  I hadn't eaten in days .. or was it hours?  Anyway, the bag ... it smelled like food.  How could I resist?  I couldn't.  I didn't. I'm only sorry I got caught.  Jan duct taped the bag and put it away where I couldn't reach it.  *deep sigh* 


We haven't remembered to or been able to participate in Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails in a loooooong time.  The phrase we had to use this month was, "It smelled like ..."   Around here, "it smelled like food" is a popular phrase.  For example:  the dish towel has a big hole in it because it smelled like food. 

FFHT is hosted by Murphy and Stanley.

PERCY:  We do not have a Mousebreath cat interview to publish this week. We are working on several but there were not enough hours in the week to finish preparing.  However, be sure to visit us next Friday when we will be interviewing the blog 15 and Meowing.  15 feline personalities make for a fun story. 

Friday is also time for the Pet Parade blog hop, hosted by by Rascal and Roscoe.  It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).

There are two parts to the blog hop - your blog url and social media, so be sure to sign up for both. 

When you link up with the blog hop, we encourage you to visit other participating blogs.

  14. Haha... we've had to duct tape bags of kibble too... the worst time was when we were collecting food for our local shelter (oops...)

  18. Ooooh, the mischief....Buzz once chewed a little hole into a bag of kibble that was left sitting out within his reach...

  19. My cats do that too, I have to hide the bags on a high shelf in the closet. :)

  20. Oh, we can't say we blame you at all! If it smells like food, it's really not your fault at all. Well, that's what WE say, anyway. :)
