A MURDER IN MY HOUSE !


One Sunday morning I went into the kitchen, to prepare my first cup of coffee, which would be followed by many others during email reading. But what did I see ? A mouse head, facing the cat food bowls as if it wanted to eat ! But where was the body ? I mean a mouse should have paws a body and a tail, but here I only saw the head, thoroughly disembodied from the rest ! A murder had happened in my kitchen and needed to be solved.

I thought to call the Waterloo CSI staff, to analyse the head, but then I thought it is not necessary because it seemed that the mouse smiled and still wanted to eat, all signs that it died happily. I would solve the crime myself in my Miss Marple way.



There were no bloodstains on the floor, it all seemed to have been cleaned up ! I

Who could have done this atrocious murder ? Mr. G. ? he denied ferociously and said he had no knife which  was so sharp to do such a good surgical work !

After having excluded as culprit cat Pookie (too lazy), cat Arthur (too slow) my eyes turned to this one !



Rosie was the killer ! I was sure ! when I told her what I had found, she gave me this innocent look and then went to bed to have a good nap ! How can such an innocent looking girl be such a killer ?

There is no law which says to sentence a cat for killing a mouse,  although it was a planned murder, therefore Mr. G. threw the mouse head in the bin and I finally could drink my first coffee !

Rosie sounds like she's a good mouser. The mice must be dumb to come near a house where there are three cats,

Looks like Rosie is establishing her own "French Revolution" at home...
God bless you!

Wow -- what a way to start your day -- that'll get your juices flowing without even needing the coffee ! But better than your good little mouser did your work for you, it would have been worse to see a live one.

Kim! you didn't mention Kim. There's your culprit. It could not possibly be sweet and innocent Rosie...
