This is the city. It’s not a perfect place, but it’s where several cats and a big fluffy dog make their home with a human named Jen.
As I was patrolling my beat, I came across the scene of a crime so heinous, I almost horked up a hairball.
I asked myself: Who had the means, motive and opportunity to commit such a dastardly offense?
I quickly ruled out all of the cats. While we may have motive and opportunity, none of us have the means to open a can of food like this. If we did, the world would be ours!
And Jen didn’t have the opportunity, because she was at work earning money to buy us still more food.
That left the dog.
He had means. He is able to chew on a cat food can and open it.
He had motive. He loves cat food and gets into it every chance he gets.
And he had opportunity. He was home alone looking for some kind of mischief to get into.
OK dog, let’s head down to the precinct. I’m throwing the book at ya. MEOW!!!!

I’m sure some squirrels entered your house. but hey, Rumpy, you can open a can? that’s pawsome, can you show me the trick ?:o)
it’s all in the jaw action!
MEOW! All in a day’s work.
You are a very talented doggie!!
Who? Me? I’m innocent, I tell ya!
When my husband’s sister stopped on her way through from a trip from Texas to New York State their cat got out at our home. She said that she had left the cat some food in our back yard. I did not think too much of it thinking that she had tried to coax the cat back into the carrier and all. I found the can three days later (we have 7 and a half acres) thought I should mention that, It had never been opened. The cat came out on their trip back. Or at least they said it did since we never saw it.
If I’d been around, you’d never seen that can again. woo woo!
They knew that we had to go out of town too for a few days I have no clue what they were thinking. Our pets went with us. We did leave the pet opened food which I am sure the possum also enjoyed.
OMD that’s amazeballs, opening a can. You must have a very tough mouth.
Super Dog! Da da da da!!!!!
Hehehe do you need springing Rumpy? Us bunnies are the perfect Houdini’s,xx Speedy
Help me Speedy!!!!!
Hehehe I’m on my way!
Rumpy, you are a devilish dog. You better hope Jen gives you probation or you’ll be eating bread and water while you’re in jail.
It seems someone was just doing a quality control check on the safety aspects of tinned food….well someone has too!! hugs Fozziemum xx
The evidence against you is quite compelling, Rumpy. Do you have an alibi for the time in question?
Yes. I had a duck on my head!
Is the duck willing to quack on your behalf?
He is if I push on the squeaker!
You have no worries with a witness like that!
OMD! Are you sure that Rumpy did it, June Buggie?! He looks so innocent…I can’t believe he does such a scary thing….*whispering to Rumpy* Run away Runpy, ruuuuuuun!!!!!
Hide me Kevin!!!!
hahaha!!!! That was a super cute post! Loved it!
Oh Rump!!!! You had to know you were gunna get caught! Who else would have chewed through cans like that!!??!
ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!
Uh, the tooth fairy?
My hubby wants to represent you and I told him I’d be the secretary. First question to help you out Rumpy, did you share any of it? And, we’re sending in the two zillion character references we know we can collect. Not to worry, pal, we have your tail. 😉
Woo woo! I”m sure I”ll be found not guilty now…. provided there are no cans of cat food around.
Hummmm You are our kind of DOG!!!
Fuzzy and Boomer
Woo woo woo!!!!!
Busted! Sorry, but a criminal mastermind Rumpy is not.
Yikes!!! You are a great crime solver!! High five to Rumpy!!!
I can’t believe folks still side with the dog! -June Buggie
Great crime story!
The story you read was true. No names were changed to protect anybody.
Cute animal shots. Love them!
Thank you seg!
I’m just glad Rumpydog didn’t suffer any injuries while committing the crime. Those edges can be sharp. Perhaps he had the duck doing all the heavy lifting.
Awww Rumpy…you must learn to get rid of the evidence my friend
Some incredible detective skills there Sherlock! ^_^
I can’t help it. I’m laughing out loud! 🙂 Unless, of course, you think it’s not really funny….!
Oh it’s funny alright!
Please feed the dog so that he doesn’t have to eat cat food cans.it can’t be too healthy for him.
Happy Easter to you all, we hope you get’z lot’z of Berd or Thuna wez will see’z youz
Mollie and Alfie
Happy Easter to you too Mollie and Alfie!
June Buggie, you need to side with Rumpy – next time he may share……
“Book ’em, Dano.” Or, would that be … “Just the facts, ma’am (er, that is, Rumpy.) Happy Easter to you and your clan. 😉
Look at the innocent look on your face Rumpy! I don’t believe it was you for a second 😉
Means, motive and paw-purtunity. Where’s a scapegoat when you need one?
Oh Rumpy you obviously had a visit from that naughty SOD (some other doggy!)
