Crime Scene at the Townhouse

Hi everyone, Detective Katie here.

We interrupt today's Saturday Photohunt theme, *DOOR,* to bring you breaking developments live from the Townhouse.

As you know, Waffles has a well established reputation for stealing food and treats. Remember the beef tenderloin??? According to eyewitness accounts, he's been seen opening the kitchen cupboards. His first offense was minor. Just the lower cabinet containing the toaster. He then moved to the FOOD cabinet which is positioned adjacent to the toaster cabinet.

Glogirly was forced to relocate all bagged food and treats to the upper deck of kitchen cupboards. But that didn't stop him. He unabashedly scaled the pristine counters, reaching the highest of the cabinets.

As his crimes have increased in severity and frequency, Glogirly has had no choice but to tape the cabinet doors shut until she could consult the experts at Home Depot for a more permanent solution. I suggested we relocate Waffles to the kitten room and lock the door. But Glogirly did not heed my advice.


THIS is what we woke up to this morning. The taped cupboard doors had been breached overnight, orange fur was found stuck to the tape and pawprints were clearly visible on the otherwise shiny countertop. 


The crime scene extended from the kitchen into the fireplace room. The victim's remains, just an empty shell of what used to be, lay lifeless on the floor.  

The deceased has been identified as a brand new bag of freeze dried turkey treats. No other information is available at this time.

  1. Shocking! You mean to tell me that he not only appears to have returned to the scene of the crime, (standing by the carcass), but he didnt even remove his identifiable orange furs?? Thought he was smarter than that. ;)

He is a growing-ah young kitteh who requires-ah moar than his housemate eats in her quest to bend to the whims of societal sleekness, in order to be a happy healthy vital-ah cat and ladies an gentlecats of-ah tha jury, I say *LETS FREE WAFFLES FROM THIS HEINOUS ACCUSATION* and feed-ah tha boy until he can't even groan!
    It's-ah tha right thing to do!

  6. Good going, Waffles! Too bad you got caught. I have opened a few treat bags on my own and it's fun and delicious.

  7. Lucky you, Waffles. At least you got to enjoy your loot. Mom caught me trying to help myself to a half-pound chunk of juicy, perfect roast beef the other night. She *shooed* me and put the meat in that friggermater thing that I can't figure out how to open. Keep up the good work! Love, Ziggy

  9. OMC - Is this an orange cat thing? Our new kitty Russell can get into everything. We are talking about getting baby locks for the cupboards over here!

  10. Katie are you the Mastermind behind this crime? CSI should check those tooth marks.

  11. Katie, we bet you wouldn't be reporting this if Waffle would have shared those treats with you. Or did he???

  12. Uh oh! You are in big time trouble now, Waffles!

  14. This calls for a real investigation!
    Raz has been known to do things like that too...maybe it's a boycat thing?

  15. Child proof locks...some are kitten proof, too. *s* (Seren-Kitty did the same thing...)

  16. Uh-oh, Waffles, we think they're onto you. Hide!

  17. It's all just circumstantial evidence! Could have been a burglar with orange furs. Could have been a burglar who planted orange furs. Where is the DNA evidence?? Hmmmm....maybe you should set up a video camera....

  19. Oh no!! Yet another crime at the Glogirly town house... will the rampant law-breaking and delinquency ever end? And jumping on the pristine counter too... we know that can't make Gloman very happy... Thank Cod Waffles is cute... err... not that we are implying he is guilty or anything like that...

  20. We had no idea that Waffles is such a naughty kitty and snack thief. Probably just youthful exuberance that he'll grow out of…don't you think? Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  21. OMC - Katie - you sure have your paws full with that Waffles dude. M's first kitty and their doggie used to team up to do their break in. M had dry food in a pull out kitchen drawer - did that stop them ------NO! They she put one of those hook and eye closures on it. Did that work -------NO! Finally she gave up and put the food in plastic containers with a screw down lid and that they could not open. Good luck Katie!

  22. Waffles, if you keep this up, you'll be headed to a life of crime and you'll be lucky to get bread and water. Stop stealing!

    PS from Percy: Good job, Waffles. We are kindred spirits.

  23. Now you know where Waffles gets the energy to do the two-step.

  24. Bwaa!! Haa!! Haa!!
    Waffles, yous is developing into a wonderful cat from hell!

  25. We have a plastic bin (Container Store) for pet food with a snap-on lid in the cat cupboard. Louie, who's a real "chewer", hasn't breached the lid yet, or even shown any interest in trying. We'll see, though. He may get inspired after reading about Waffles' caper...

  26. Oooooh! This is like CSI:Townhouse!

  28. Shame, shame, Waffles... you clever kitty.

  29. MOL... uh oh! Sounds like you need some of those baby proof cabinet thingies. Sorry I don't have a more technical name for them... I also tie some of my cabinets shut because my human baby likes to make messes in them!

    ReplyDelete
  30. OMC! Waffles, you ate the whole thing!! With all that turkey in your orange belly you are in for a big nap!!

    Katie, take out the pawcuffs!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hah! I know what those babyproof thingies are called because I just bought some more to deal with Career Criminal Julio. Katie, they are: http://www.kidsafeinc.com/adjustable-locking-strap/ and they're only about $6 per cupboard.

    If I could figure out how to post pictures here, I'd post a picture of both the locking strap and Career Criminal Julio.

    kidsafeinc.com appears to have lots of catproofing devices. Just don't get the magnet locks; they may keep kids out - but not Julio. He threw the magnet part on the floor and then pried the cabinet open!

  32. We agree with Alice Marie. This is all circumstantial evidence. Do we have an eye witness to the crime or video surveillance?

    Pssst, Waffles...we can recommend a good feline attorney.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is a very worrying development indeed! I do hope that the ornj perpetrator is apprehended, though the evidence is purely circumstantial! Katie, I suspect you are quite good at "fitting up"?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Waffles Waffles Waffles! Will you never learn? You must remove all incriminating evidence from the crime scene.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, oh Waffles, things are not looking good for you. Hope your sentence is reduced for good behaviour. Oh wait....

  36. Well Katie we just have one question. Did he SHARE? If he shared well then no problem if Glogrily isn't smart enough to keep him out of the treats IT'S HER FAULT. On the other hand if he didn't share then string him up by his tail, the no good thieven varmint. He stole your share of the treats.

  37. Mum keeps our treats where we can't get at the handles to open the doors.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My cat bro Bert has been involved in such crimes at our homes. Very naughty kitties!

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is great and you even got doors into it. MOL! We laffed and laffed but I’m sure Glogirly wasn’t laffing. TW says I’m such a good kitty.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The cat is a hunter. He pursues his prey wherever that it is, and chooses the good moment to strike, not leaving it any chance to escape. The experimented hunter whom I am tells you : good job Waffles ! Purrs. Loupi

  41. Hey Waffles, this is Venus and Viktor. We are being accused of the same crime this week too! Our food is stored in identical cabinets and we've been helping ourselves to our food whenever we wanted. Unfortunately, Venus got caught going into the cabinet and our mom put a rubber band across the handles to stop us. We were appalled -- and starving! It took us a week but we figured out how to get past that trap. Our advice is to not let any theft deterrent system get in your way. Us kitties gotta eat, right?!?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh boy! As someone who works in forensics, let me just say that a quick look at preliminary evidence doesn't look good for Waffles! Good thing he's cute!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ha, ha Waffles. You are a little character. I had to get some child locking devices at my house. Garfield loves to chew tape and anything plastic. LOL.

  44. Orange fur on the sticky tape---maybe W2 was set up? Maybe it was aliens?

    ReplyDelete
  45. You should so get in on the action Katie, perhaps you could be the brains?!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I sure hope you found a furry GOOD hidingspot by now , Waffles ;-)
