Bugs The HeistMeister

The scene of the crime when Bean left the house at 8:15 on the morning of October 15th.

The scene when Bean returned at 12:01 pm.  The treats were completely gone.

Bugs pleads not guilty.

The smoking claw.

What do you think.  Probation and six months community service?

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    We had a similar situation recently, involving a spate of courgette assaults. My report was filed here, sarge: http://confessionsofacatwoman.com/2011/08/12/csi-miaowmi/ Not sure if there are any links between the felons. Sorry, Felines.

    I saw the corpse over at your place. Not a pretty site. Copycat crime?
    Sorry for the puns. The lamest form of humo(u)r, I believe.
    Still. You’re the one who said “mice to meet you.” Turnabout is fair play.

  3. Like the bloody glove–we bet that claw sheath doesn’t fit!

  4. Forget probation – I think he deserves a treat for opening the jar without opposable thumbs!

  5. nadbugs says:

    I know! Too f’n WEIRD! Do you suppose . . . . NO!!

  6. That was a fantastic documentary, and it explains the treat jar. Bugs definitely deserves a treat now – one for being more highly evolved!

  7. I think that because you were so clever at getting them out of the jar you should be rewarded! With more treats!

  8. Kame says:

    Hmmm…the evident is clearly not enough!! I hope Bugs can find his alibi

    • nadbugs says:

      Well, Kame, you can see from the comments so far what law-enforcement has to put up with around here. Rewarding the guilty. So they can go out and re-offend.

    Aren’t ladies always looking for the man to open those tightly stuck jar lids?

    • nadbugs says:

      Especially those ladies — and gents — with arthritis. The question is, tho: Will the gentleman be willing to oblige even though treats are not in the container? This is the question.
      I feel certain Bugs will answer this question in the negative.
      So in this household it’s best not to rely on this if-come, then.
      My solution is to whack on the side of the lid with a knife-handle — and to keep it up until either the lid pops a-loose or the jar breaks. Either way. I prefer the former but hey. You can’t always get what you want. Just as long as you get what you need.

  10. Eleanor says:

    There is no apology at all in that face. In fact, it looks like a challenge! I don’t think this is the end…

    • nadbugs says:

      Isn’t that always the way. It’s the slippery slope. Give him an inch and he takes a mile. Some folks would call that enterprise. I call it bloody-minded persistence. Call it what you will. Whatev. Bugs shall rule the roost.

  11. Wazeau says:

    He definately needs to work on his “innocent look”. More treats as an incentive?

  12. nadbugs says:

    No kidding. Treats. Serious business. You should see the lengths I go to, to make sure we don’t run out.

  13. Melanie says:

    Next time, Bugs, hide the claw. Then Bean will NEVER figure out who did it!

  14. nadbugs says:

    You are so right. Matter of fact, even tho I know darn well he did this, I have to say I’m awestruck. HOW??? I mean, leaving the top on the chair, and the jar on the floor? Opposable thumbs. It’s the only answer.

  15. Marcy Benham says:

    Maybe he employed his tail???? TOO funny!!

  16. Anne D says:

    One of my cats jumped on a counter, pried open an iron cooking pot (over 100 years old) to reach the cat food which I had thought was stored safely therein. The cover of the pot fell to the cement below, cracked and had to be repaired by a machine shop.

    • nadbugs says:

      This cat is a real heavyweight. Bugs wants to know what gym he or she goes to? And if she, can she come over and teach him a few moves? Bean is conveying this message with deep misgivings.
