One of These Days, She'll Succeed

On the way to work this afternoon, my brakes failed. Suddenly, the stain on the driveway near the truck's left rear tire made sense — it must have been brake fluid — and there was only one logical conclusion.

The cat did it.

I was, thankfully, not far from my mechanic's shop, so I nursed the truck there and left it. The funny thing is, I'm getting a new truck next week, so even if I'd wrecked the old Blazer, I wouldn't have been wheelless for long.

Still, I have to bear in mind that Mycah cut my brake lines. Which, you have to admit, is a pretty clever thing for a cat to be able to do. I mean, she can't even reach the doorknobs to let herself out. But given her history, can there be any doubt it's her doing?

Now I know how Clouseau felt about Cato.

Maybe she'll make up for it one day and eat your homework.

Are you playing the blame game? Or...Maybe she'll eat your HOUSEwork! Fat chance (oops!)

After riding in your truck a few months ago, I can't blame the cat.

My advice: park the thing next to the pet cemetary, torch it, leave tell-tale kitty tracks, and the empty gas can next to Mycah's food dish. The perfect crime. You'll get the insurance money, and they'll never suspect it was you!
