MYSTERY CAT THEATRE - Conclueshun

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!

Good reasoning - just goes to show no know knows the kitties like mom. Yes, hot shove can be a problem when the kitty doesn't know it.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Yes, excellent reasoning!

Is there any kind of burner cover for the stove, even though it's a flat top? We have only "old fashioned" burners, and we don't get up there anyway, at least not when the mom's around.

That Mom is one good investigator. But that picture kind of tells the tale even if the picture is a tiny bit fuzzy. So Mica, if I were you, I would stay away from the stove for a while. Take care.

We've got a flat top too - Hannah rarely gets up there but of course Lucy is another matter!! If mum has had the top on - not often cos she says it's quicker to use the microwave - and she has to leave the kitchen before the top is cool she tries to cover the top with cold saucepans to deter determined snoopers!

Well, we think your are real investigators and have good reason for thinkg it was Mica.

A couple of years ago, Ernie jumped up on the flat top stove when the burner was hot and burned his paws. Nothing too serious, but scary just the same. You'd think that would have cured him from jumping up there again. It has not! Our mom is just extra careful now when she uses the stove and has hot burners.

Bravo gang! And you just gotta love a cookie monster!

Your conclusion is good.. Hope it will separate all the cat.

Katnip Lounge said...

uh oh! We hope your Mom doesn't install closed CATioned TV in the kitchen! We have jumped up on our stove when it was hot...and we only do it once.

Lucy the Cat said...

What fun posts, and I agree with some of the others that Mom is a very good detective and knows her kitties! I just hope she doesn't burn her paws some day. It's so cute how she tries to cover up her crime.

I did love my Mystery Theater visit and found the rational intriguing. Mica...the jig is up my dear.

meowmeowmans said...

Great deductive reasoning, friends! Mica, that picture isn't totally clear, so we say "deny, deny, deny!" MOL

The Meezers or Billy said...

personally, we think it was our Nicky - he's horrible.

Meowers from Missouri said...

we has a range like that an' mom allus puts anovver pan onna hot burner. she sez it's not good fur the empty pan, but that don't matter if it's safer fur us.

that sounds logical... but then again, these are cats.. and just because someone is locked up in the basement doesn't mean it might not be her ;)
