Sherlock Hopeless Pet Detective: Part 3 Mission Accomplished!

AMARULA (aka Sherlock Hopeless Pet Detective): As you may recall, last Monday I had finally cornered my greatest nemesis: Play-Doh (that’s right, as in that sticky, clay-like stuff kids love to play with!). Scuttlebutt among the neighborhood cats is that’s the ridiculous name her human’s gave her! Humans can be so cruel! Hee hee!

weak-start

AMARULA:  I will be frank. She proved to be a greater foe than I imagined. She has nerves of steel! Neither of us proved victorious for the sidewalk showdown so we had to take the competition up a notch! It was time for the dreaded “Bouncy Belly Beatdown”. In this fierce battle maneuver, both cats display their bellies in a competition to see whose is the cutest and most rubbable. She started the Bouncy Belly Beatdown:

AMARULA: She was off to a weak start…

AMARULA: But pretty quickly she starting giving it her all by exposing what even I must admit is a very rubbable belly!

AMARULA: So then I showed her my stuff! Close up please…

belly-cute

AMARULA: Have you ever seen a cuter tummy? And look at that exquisite toe curl! Then I just flash my emerald green eyes and no one can resist me! I mean it’s incredible, right?!

stare-down

AMARULA: Finally we had to admit that both our tummies were incredibly cute and call a tie. So we moved on to the final competition: the Staredown!

AMARULA: She gave it a noble effort…

AMARULA: But finally she had to admit defeat! I was victorious! The streets, sidewalks and backyards of the neighborhood were once again mine!

ran-away-in-fear

AMARULA: Look at her run in fear (well, alright, maybe not so much run as saunter)! She was a worthy opponent who fought fairly so we came to a compromise that she could visit MY backyard once a week. At other times…

AMARULA: She has to stay on her side of the fence!

AMARULA: Where she and Frodo can stare longingly at one another from a distance!

Sherlock Hopeless Pet Detective: Part 2 Sidewalk Showdown!

AMARULA  (aka Sherlock Hopless Pet Detective): Well, I did it! Phffffft to all you naysayers! I told you I would track down that sneaky feline who has been coming into MY backyard to hang with Frodo and I did it! While my extensive investigative search a few weeks ago proved fruitless, (I simply could not concentrate because I always felt like I was being followed!) this week was much more successful!

AMARULA: I was doing my regular neighborhood-watch patrol of my sidewalks, minding my own business….

AMARULA: When Blam! She jumped out of a pile of leaves!

fancy-footwork2

AMARULA: I relied on my lighting-like reflexes and used some of that fancy footwork us torties are known for to avoid the fluffy ball of danger! Yet she persisted in following me! Did the idiot not realize that I intended to introduce her to my “Paws of Death” to persuade her to stay away from my backyard!? Clearly all that fluff has gone her head!

sidewalk-showdow-pet-detective

AMARULA: Well, I hated to do it, but clearly this was going to call for some serious feline ferociousness! It was time for the dreaded Sidewalk Showdown!

sidewalk-showdown

AMARULA: The goal is to protect your side of the sidewalk until one feline gives way and admits the other’s superiority. It ain’t pretty folks and can get quite fierce! You may want to hide your children and look away…

Sherlock Hopeless: Pet Detective

AMARULA: As you may recall, dear readers, we recently had a feline interloper in MY backyard whose interest in Frodo showed she was clearly deranged and possibly rabid. After the last encounter, I promised I would track down where this hussy lives and introduce her to Ms. CLAWS (if you know what I mean!) Being a woman of my word, I have been prowling the neighborhood at all hours hoping to catch site of the miscreant.  I am sad to report that so far I have not found a single sign of the fluffy trespasser!

feel-like-im-being-followed2

AMARULA: Yesterday, I thought I was close…I felt an evil presence everywhere I turned and I could not shake the feeling that I was being watched!

have-a-napzz

AMARULA: The sensation that I was SO CLOSE to my prey haunted me and yet I could not find her! The stress was too much and I decided that what I really needed was a good nap to help revive me.

AMARULA: After a short 12 hour nap, I was still unable to allay my feelings of unease. Where is that felonious feline?! Despondent, I just stared at the sidewalk for hours!

AMARULA: Don’t you worry, I shall never give up! I am a fierce hunting feline. I am legendary for my superior tracking and detective skills and I am sure I will soon find my prey! I shall not give up! At least I can still amuse myself by participating in the Awww Monday Blog hop from Comedyplus!
