I plead the 5th Amendment...that applies to cats, right?



Here are the top 5 reasons not to blame me for this "mess":

1. The ball/track toy was already under there (Chase).
2. The blanket is in the wash that's why its just the mattress (Meowmy).
3. Kaze's fault for the snuggle pad on the floor (Kaze).
4. The fuzzies on the rug are Meowmy's duty to vacuum (Meowmy).
5. If we had more toys I wouldn't need to entertain myself this way (Chip Man).


Therefore I conclude that while I may or may not have created the holes in the box spring, I did NOT create this messy scene. That fault belongs to others. (It is REALLY fun to continue the damage though...)

You tell um Latte! OH, before I forget. I picked up your mice. They are actually mini mice, something that I didn't notice the first time BUT, your pink and white mousie is in there. So, when Daddybean comes home this weekend, then Mommy will run post haste to the post office and mail your meesies right to you! She hopes you like them but is not, it's OK. She says that you may have moved on from so long an absence. Whatever the case, enjoy them or give them to a shelter. It's up so you my friend! Mommy was just excited to find them!

Love,
Oscar

That scene looks like a team effort. We knew a meezer that did that kind of damage to our grandma's bed. That's where he would hide until someone figured it out and decided to tear the whole cover off the bottom.

If your defense strategy works, please share it. The furballs have created a similar mess and are looking for a way out!

Hi Latte--
That's a good idea: don't get all caught up in the "cause and effect" game. Momma always wants to know "who did that? how did that happen?" Pointless questions. Anyway, it's UNDER the bed, so the Beans can't see it anyways, right?
Happy play time!
Your new buddy, Jimmy Joe

The Meezer Gang said...

HAHAHA!!! Your bed looks like our Mom's bed!!!!!! But we didn't do it either!!!! Mom finally gave up, and cut all of that fabric away, because she said that it looks aweful just dangling there. Whatever. To each his own!

HRH Yao-Lin said...

YOu should all of you be extremely proud. It must have taken months of dedication!

Not, of course, that you were in any way involved. I just think you deserve a medal is all.

He he

The Meezers said...

clearly not your fault.

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

WOW!!! That is pawesome! You and/or Kaze/Chase ripped up the bottom of the box spring?? It never occurred to me! We must try it this weekend, since mommy and daddy won't be around!

Cheysuli said...

I completely believe you. It's not your fault.

Kimo & Sabi said...

Maybe you need to go out fer a STROLL!!! WE can't believes you git to stroll in a pet pageant - what a blast! Fanks fer supporting our stroller petition!

Caesar and Princess said...

We agree completely. Our mommie got a cheapo fitted sheet to put on the under side of the box spring so these things would not mysteriously happen

Happy Guiltfree day Latte

Tara said...

Latte, of course its not your fault, you had every right to play with the box springs, clearly you didn't have enough toys!

Daisy said...

Hey, my Mommie did the same thing as Caesar and Prinnie's Mommie! Just put a fitted sheet on the box springs (on the bottom part) and you are good as new.

Lux said...

We keep trying to figure out a way to get inside ours - *someone (not you) really did a great job here!

Eric and Flynn said...

Dat's a grate artwork by who efurr did it. Our Beans old bed wuz like dat, but mum's only got to hear the kwietest scratch on the new bed, and she comes running and hollering.

The Furry Kids said...

You mean beds *aren't* for scratching?!

Victor Tabbycat said...

I fink you was tryin to catch a mouse an if they knowed there was a mouse inside their bed, they'd fank you fur bein such a good guard cat. I fink that's a good D-fence if you can't plead the 5th. 5th what?

Cats NEVER create messes! So of course you didn't.
Come on over and have some lizards, we are having a BBQ!!!

Fritzamus Maximus said...

Heh... I used to climb in the box spring of the Feeder's old bed. Hey, it CAME ripped like that! Then they got a differnt bed.

I saw that you are the Guest Star on Chey's Place. It's nice to meet you! Ernest and I would be honored if you would come and visit us sometime.
