The Case of the Missing Cat Food

Standard

After my post-breakfast nap this morning, I returned to my eating place to have some lunch.

And thatโ€™s when I discovered that my bowl was empty!

Completely, utterly empty!

I put my paw in the bowl just to be sure.

Yep. My food was gone, and so were my hopes of lunch.

Where did it go?

My first suspect was obvious:

Simon! The other cat I live with who sometimes sneaks food from my bowl.

โ€œDid you partake of my sustenance?โ€ I asked.

He swore on his whiskers that it wasnโ€™t him. He was going to have a bite or two during my nap, sure, but by the time he got there, there wasnโ€™t any left.

Hmmโ€ฆmaybe I was thinking about it all wrong.

I meowed for my hooman and said โ€œhooman! You forgot to feed me today!โ€

And he took one look at my bowl and said โ€œIโ€™m not falling for that again!โ€

I tried to persuade him, but it was no use.

Then I sat by the window to think.

Where did my food go?

And then I saw a car parked outsideโ€ฆ

It was the Chipmobile!

That’s right, today was the 22nd! I had invited Blue Chip over today to celebrate his birthday and the autumnal equinox!

He brought me a plate of his own food from home, and I remembered that we had planned on trading cat food at my place before we went shopping at the catnip megamall with all our kitty friends!

We had a great time and got some good deals.

Happy Birthday Blue Chip!!
