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 !
