Perp

















This is the face of a mouse-killer. Computer mouse, that is. Present tally: 2. That's a better mouse record than my cat.

The mask is a futile attempt to hide his identity. The overall cuteness is a silent plea for leniency. Or maybe just a reminder that I need to make some modifications around here so he can't go jumping onto my computer and my desk. I sometimes wonder if he's part billy goat.

He's definitely an insomniac. I sleep with earplugs, but Dan reports that all night long he hears Cadbury drinking from his water bottle, ringing the bell on his cage, jumping in and out of his litter box and chewing on things. I think Dan should get over it and get earplugs.

Nevertheless, I'm beginning to think Cadbury would be perfect for the job of real mouse-catcher. You see, the other night I caught Dan sneaking around the house at 2:00 am wearing nothing but a pair of boxer shorts and carrying a broom. At his heels was the cat in a clearly subsidiary role. I asked what the heck was going on and Dan informed me that he thought he heard a mouse. I, of course, heard nothing. Gotta love earplugs.

If we do have a mouse, I think we should put Cadbury on the job. And in the meantime, I guess it's a good thing we have a computer store on campus because I'm in need of a mouse of the computer variety.

You should get a wireless mouse! Cadbury looks full of repent in the photo. Poor guy. Don't put me on the jury...We'll let him off for sure!

Don't put me on the jury, either....Cadbury looks far too innocent to be a mouse-killer!!

Oh my goodness, LOL! What a little mess of a bun he is. He is reminding me more and more of MaoMao. MaoMao is the King of Whap around here. Anything that isn't nailed down or well-secured, he'll whap it into the floor and then goodness knows where it'll end up if it isn't found soon. And he has that innocent look down to an art, too!

An insomniac bunny -- hehe! He's a little spaz! :)

Are you sure it was him?? He can't do no wrong with a face like that!

LOL, bunnies really are masters of disguises huh? All angelic on the outside, but on the inside ha! little devils ;)

You should get a wireless mouse this time.. but then, Cadbury will just find something new to destroy lol!

We the jury find little Cadbury innocent by virtue of excessive cuteness!

I tell you these masked bunnies are always up to something. Tyler has been particularly naughty recently, it must be the season. Cadbury's cuteness is worth at least 50 get out of jail free cards.

Awww, so sweet! Oh, dear. An insomniac bun! I'm one of these people who falls asleep in under a minute, so I can't tell if mine rustle around at night. They have a nightly pre-bedtime romp for an hour or two, which is when our naughtiness occurs. Last night it was pulling up a patch of carpet the size of a baseball. BF will not be pleased, but it was my fault for being out of the room and ignoring that faint but persistent rrrrip noise. After the romp, they get incarcerated in the bathroom, which has a baby gate that they can't jump. They can't be trusted, and I can't imagine the damage they'd cause if they weren't in lockdown.

I had to get a wiresless mouse which I hide in a drawer so Bad Cat won't knock it off my computer table. It's like he is COMPELLED to knock it around!
Did Dan teach the cat how to catch mice? :-)

I have a nice brandnew keyboard thanks to Mabel A. Butt.
Now, the computer room is typically off limits unless WELL supervised...
