Ok, whee have very carefully analysed the evidence. Whee spent a long time at the scene of the crime and now I, Inspector Basil of the Hutch have a list of suspects. If you missed it, whee have a naughty thief who has been nomming on our home grown vegetables. See here.
Severus Slug – Seen in the area, looking suspiciously chubby
Samantha Snail – Seen up that end of the garden and a known offender, who last made off with Mummy’s marigolds two weeks ago
Scuzzy Squirrel – Was on a date with a pretty red squirrel and The Oak Restaurant can confirm this.
Colin the Caterpillar – Was seen in the area, and found on the edge of one of the pots in which a crime was committed
Boots, the neighbourhood kitten – was spotted bothering the koi carp in a furfriends garden two roads away at the time of the crime
Felix the Fox – Claims to have been somewhere else but no one else can confirm this.
So as you can see, I have narrowed it down. Unfortunately the clues are conflicting and I believe the cucumber cruncher and the basil burglar may be two separate crimes.
Dun dun dun
This investigating has been tiring work. Who do you think did it? Let us know and whee will have the big reveal and arrests in the next post!
“Heya Buddy Budkins! Are you waiting for something?!”
(I can’t help the ridiculous nickname she used, some hoomans just don’t respect that I have a reputation to protect!)
“Of course. My vegetables woman, where are they?!” I wheeked back loudly, climbing the bars.
“But it’s not 11 o’clock silly boy! Not veggie time yet!” she laughed.
“Does this face really look like it cares for your cruel time-telling devices lies about whether it’s stomach needs feeding?!” I wheeked back in outrage.
Clearly persuaded by my powers of argument (and the fact she needed to go out and do some food shopping soon) she fetched the vegetables with only a small amount of naughtiness in only giving us two veggies instead of our usual three. However whee forgive her because whee got to have the left over carrot tops and broccoli stalks from the hoomans dinner, whee always wheek in case they are cooking something that might have left overs for us! Yummy!
What’s your favourite snack? Do you have a silly nickname your hooman thinks is cute? It can’t be worse than Buddy Budkin, Buddy Battenburg bottom (named so for the neat markings on my fur), Buddy McFabulous or Prince Buddy Buddington! (All real nicknames Mummy uses!)
Well yesterday whee had some lovely sunshine so Mummy and the little hoomans put us in the garden. They said they were growing some things whee might like to eat. Whee got them to take some pigtures of the veggie and herb plants so whee could show you, and maybe when they are big and tall whee can show you them again!
Hope efurryone had a great day and have a super Saturday!
