We really enjoyed the comments, and loved other kitties thoughts and reasoning. The votes are in and by a very narrow margin, the popular candidate was sweet little Oui Oui. However, here our suspishuns fall on Mica Minnie Moo. First we would like to make 2 statements for the record. One, no one will be in trouble, even if they were caught red pawed. We've had too many kitties for that. The Mom is really worried about someone burning their toes and isn't sure if anything can be done to keep her off. Its a flat top stove and the burners stay hot for long time. The other thing we'd like to say is, like so many times with kitties, the evidence is circomestandshial. So our best guess could be wrong.
Here is our reasoning, and how we eliminated kitties, in increasing order of speculayshun:
1 - Julie was in the basement. She must be kept away from Mica when no one's home. Its a walk out basement, with a big French Doors Kitty TV, fully carpeted and furnished. There's even a piano, so its a fitting accommodation for a queen. Its nice and quiet and those commoners don't pester her there - its a fav with her.
2 - Carl has never jumped on anything in his life but a bed. Its part of the reason he earned an 8 on the fat scale.
3 - While Oui Oui will jump on things, she isn't known for whapping things off. She could have done it, but it seems unlikely she would have knocked 4 items off the counter in just a few days when she never whapped anything down before.
4 - Its hard to know where to start with Mica Minnie Moo. From the first she's knocked things off shelves, counters and dressers. A few items have broken. She's visited the kitchen counters often looking for and actually stealing food. Her signature move is covering stuff up (like the box and the paper towel that were whapped off together). After this series started, the Mom heard a soft "plop" in the kitchen. She tried to take a picture, but Mica is too fast for the camera (the stinky little one on her phone). But only one kitty has toes like in the photo.
So in conclusion, we think Mica Moo was missing her cookie fix. While cookie hunting, she whapped some stuff out of her way and tried a substitute which just didn't cut it (the tag with the plastic tie). She tried to cover up if she could (the paper towel). We have one thing to say to her - MICA! DON'T RETURN TO THE SCENE OF THE CRIME!
We hope you enjoyed our Mystery Cat Theatre!
