Max on... Almost Unsolved Beeping Mystery
The boys are never far from trouble. You know that. I mean, who remembers the pumpernickle bread party they had in the middle of the night shortly after HH adopted them? Or the many escapades that have resulted in the boys popping out of cupboards or HH having to tape the cupboards shut with duct tape?
When Ann sent around the news about the Unsolved Mysteries, HH thought maybe we wouldn't have anything to talk about since the boys have been quite good lately. But,the boys never want to disappoint and one of them came through just in time.... And.... let me assure you ahead of time....no kitties were hurt during this mystery..
The other night in the middle of the night, HH was startled out of a sound sleep by an intermittent beeping sound. Knuckles was fast asleep in the crook of her arm, so she knew immediately that if the noise was caused by mischief, it was Bugsy; but she thought maybe it was the battery going bad on the smoke detector.
First, she opened her eyes. Without her glasses, she saw a yellow diffused light simultaneous with every beep. Knuckles reacted first and jumped to the floor and rounded the bed to the other night stand where HH keeps the charger for the cordless phone. HH grabbed her glasses and followed him.
To her surprise Bugsy (seemingly) wasnot on that side of the bed. Or was he...? The beeping continued and Knuckles looked under the bed. Nothing there. Then he peered under the night stand. Just as he did, out popped a tail. HH was shocked that Bugsy even fit under that table, but she reached under and sure enough...there was his little body and he was working hard to sever the cord to the phone charger.
Now with this story we know who-dunit.... the unsolved part is.... How in the world does Bugsy keep biting through cords without getting all electrified.....? That's what we want to know.
Well, rest assured, pals, HH has once again gone through the house and checked to make sure that all the cords are hidden. This one just slipped by her, but now she has hidden it so he can't get it. As extra security, she has posted the Pelican beside the phone charger, so she'll know if Bugsy tries to mess with it.
