TV Trip: To Tell The Truth, CAT Edition

WAFFLES:  I'm the Kitchen Counter Convict.

KATIE:  I'M the Kitchen Counter Convict.

Who's the REAL Kitchen Counter Convict???

The Backstory
Two days ago the above crime scene photograph was taken at the Townhouse. Paw prints are clearly visible on the on the kitchen counter, but investigators were unable to identify the perpetrator because Glogirly wiped away all the evidence with a roll of Bounty

Yesterday, blog readers deliberated a full 24 hours before finding Waffles guilty of crimes against countertops. The decision was not however unanimous and the case has been declared a mistrial. The rules of Double Jeopardy dictate that neither Katie nor Waffles may be tried of this crime again. Regardless of whodunnit, both cats walk.

In a shocking turn of events, TWO cats are now confessing to the countertop crime. 

In an effort to find the REAL truth behind this mystery, celebrity game show cat Kitty Carlisle (a.k.a Allie from A Tonk's Tail) has been brought in to question these so-called criminals.

KITTY CARLISLE:  Uh, Convict #1... Mr. Waffles is it?  Why did you jump on the kitchen counter?

WAFFLES:  Um, the chicken treats. I was trying to open the jar of chicken treats. But it was MY jar. The chicken treats.

KITTY CARLISLE:  Mr. Waffles. Isn't it true that the chicken treats are kept INSIDE the kitchen cupboard and not ON the countertop?

WAFFLES:  Oh yeah. And I'm not supposed to open the doors or go inside. I get in trouble whenever I eat all the treats and leave the doors open.

KITTY CARLISLE:  I see, Mr. Waffles. It doesn't sound to me as though you were on TOP of the counter. Not that I don't think you're capable of jumping that high.

WAFFLES:  Thanks, Miss Kitty. I work out you know.

KITTY CARLISLE:  And Convict #2, Miss Katie I believe. Is it true you tried to frame Mr. Waffles for these so-called countertop crimes? 

KATIE:  I never said Waffles jumped on the counter. Everyone just assumed it was him. I can't help it if he's got a reputation for getting in trouble. That's HIS problem.

KITTY CARLISLE:  But Miss Katie, you have a reputation for being such a well-mannered lady cat. Isn't that right?

KATIE:  And smart. You forgot smart.

KITTY CARLISLE:  Miss Katie, did YOU jump on the kitchen counter?

KATIE:  It's a counter. I'm a cat. What can I say?

*GASP from the audience*

KITTY CARLISLE:  Well I guess this WAS the purr-fect crime, now wasn't it!

TV Trips & Movie Spoofs
Join us each Saturday for another fun spoof!
Just tuning in? Catch up on all of our latest TV & movie spoofs. We've DVR'd them for you.


  1. So has anycat told the truth? Inquiring goats want to know

  2. Hate to be picky but waffles can be retried in a mistrial . It's only when an individual is convicted or acquitted that double jeopardy kicks in. Also the Feds can still file separate charges for the same event without the charges constituting double jeopardy. Sincerely a nerdy attorney

    1. Fortunately we're cats, so we get to make stuff up as we go. Just like on TV.
      ; )

    2. You guys are purrfect ! I can see Katie becoming an Attorney at Claw!

  3. I'm so glad Allie was able to get to the truth. She's a smart kitty!

  4. MOL, it's a counter, she's a cat, 'nuff said! Love it! Good job Allie, I mean, Kitty!, in getting the confession!

  5. Believe it or not ? I probably only kitty who don't do top of kitchen counter ! ...serious !

  6. Hehehehe yep most kitties like the counter so thats a given so it was probably both of you,cheeky kitties,xx SPeedy

  7. Allie Kitty Carlisle is a talented inquirer ! Purrs

  8. Our Katie's not the angel we thought she was .....

  9. :D cute.
    Mitsu and the Homestead Colony cats

  10. MOL, we knew it was Katie. The crime was very clever, just like her.

    Scylla gets blamed for everything around here even when she is INNOCENT.

  11. Dang Katie, you pulled of a good one girl!

  12. Cats and counters... that's just how it is. Bylaw number IIVVVXXXX.VII, subsection b.32954, point xxii. Any cat knows that... Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey kitties!

  13. We KNEW we were right!! Those dainty paw prints told us.

  14. I don't know about those horizontal stripes, Katie...

  15. Allie: I swore to remain an impartial Inquisitor - completely objective. But it was OBVIOUS to me from the first moment that Katie was clearly within her rights. *thumps gavel* CASE CLOSED!

  16. Counter tops! The forbidden territory for cats! Lets take back the counter tops!!!!

  17. This gets deeper and deeper and the mystery grows.

  18. I knew Waffles was innocent. Make sure next time you don't leave any prints Katie. Wink, wink.

  19. Oh, how shocking! What if Waffles had been convicted?

  20. I'd my money on Katie only because the paw prints looked so perfect. In our house teeny paw prints belong to the girlie with the cocktail stick paws and the jumbo paws are the preserve of the ginger teddy bear. We'd have been a rotten jury, although we were right in the end our reasoning was prejudiced.

  21. I knew you didn't do it Waffles, to bad Miss Katie can't be punished. You'll have to keep an eye on Miss Katie now that she's shown us her bad side.

  22. I think you both are guilty !
    You where partners in crime *mol*


  23. You are both guilty...of being cute!

    Noodle and crew

  24. The counter probably needed an inspection by you two anyhow.

  25. We guessed Katie, and yes, Lily Olivia was on the kitchen counter in her photo today. We do not have a "no counter surfing" rule in our house. After all, we have a water bowl on the counter at all times as well as our dough bowl bed. Nice to see Kitty (Allie) Carlisle join you! Hope you'll join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  26. I’m allowed to go anywhere in the house except the furnace room and sometimes I get in there too. It shouldn’t be a crime to jump on the countertop. I’m just meowin’.

  27. I am no expert on counter-surfing as I couldn't pop up on a chair much less a kitchen counter BUTTT I think both of those kitty faces have "GUILTY" written all over them. Yep......I see wide eyes and total mischief on both faces. I think it may have been a "joint venture"........have the pawprints been looked at by an expert? I'm thinking there are TWO SETS.....that's my story and I'm sticking with it!

    Hugs, Sammy

  28. OK..I now believe it was both of you..very clever knew Waffles would get the blame because of his reputation..right?..and Miss Kitty/Allie Carlisle you did a wonderful job questioning these two purrpurrtrators..I also love the up-side-down heart on your nose my dear..
