International Kittens of Mystery

The Joy of Cats

An unusual start to the day and a warning of things to come. Avert your eyes if you're squeamish (I did) but this morning my breakfast was interrupted when I discovered (don't ask how) that I was sitting on mouse remnants.

Yes, gentle reader, my hand came away with a small stomach attached to its palm. My chair, which had been bathed in darkness when I'd first sat down, had become a crime scene.

Now, I've watched enough CSI programmes to know that this mouse did not die of natural causes. And two suspects - with previous - were sitting in front of me. Naturally they alibied each other. Kai had been playing cards all night at a kibble club on the outskirts of Paris and Xena had been tending bar.

But I have my suspicions and Corpse Alert has been raised from Amber to Light Strawberry.
