Tomato Carnage

I came home recently to find this on our kitchen floor:


“HOLY CRAP!!!!!”

I texted a pic of the carnage to Harland.   And he replied,


I called 911 and a couple of police detectives came to our house to process the scene of the Tomatocide.

They’ve narrowed down their suspects and already have a “person feline of interest”.


Means:   The suspect can jump on top of the microwave, open the cabinet door where the tomatoes are kept, and push one of the out onto the floor. The suspect is also has a history of murder:


Motive:   The suspect is hungry all the time because the humans won’t feed her the requested 10 pounds of food per day. It’s thought that the suspect, tired of asking the humans for a bit of tomato to eat, took matters into her own hands feet, and obtained a tomato on her own.

Opportunity:   The suspect lives at the residence. Also, both the humans were at work, enabling the suspect to commit the alleged crime without witnesses.

The suspect is not talking, and no arrest has been made as yet.

Further Tomatocides are being avoided by firmly closing the tomato cabinet door.



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I’m still laughing about the Tomato Killer.
    Those Kitty stories are so much fun.

    I think Kitty was just making a piece of art.
    She made the tomato heart shaped just for you two.

    Now that is one smart cat.

    Happy Friday 🙂

    Good Grief! Just feed her more tomatoes instead of her food and see what she thinks of THAT!

      Oh but she wants whipped cream too and has learned what the can looks like so when we take it out of the fridge she begs and begs until we give her a squirt. Our spoiling of her is growing worse. Send help.

    Tatum used to climb on counters and get into stuff; one day she got on a full counter and managed to knock off a plate that broke into a gazillion pieces and made a LOT of noise. Took care of jumping onto countertops; now tabletops are an issue. She, too, thinks that she needs 10 pounds of kitty food a day; my husband would give it to her; fortunately, she has me to keep her waist in line!

    • Suzanne says:

      Kitty has broken stuff, but it’s never stopped her from getting back up where she’s not allowed. She’s sure whatever happens, it wasn’t her fault. 🙂

    Gotta love that darned cat! Funny cat stories indeed. Keeps your blog interesting indeed! Have a good weekend. Now it’s time for tea and cookies. Goodnight!

    Amazing what these furry creatures can do. My cat Sugar has discovered how to unlock the cat door which is located in a window and double locked and blocked by a cookbook at night. One A.M. this week she managed to push the book away and unlock to go out at 5 A.M.!

    I hope Kitty has retained a good lawyer! She hasn’t a paw to stand on, but that little cutie will blink and swish her tail and …well you know Suzanne. Next she will be hanging out with the barn cats! Good luck my friend.

    Do you think the cat hair on the deceased may have been a clue? Call out CSI immediately!

    • Suzanne says:

      Yes we think so. It’s white and short. It’s Kitty’s hair. But I suppose she would insist on DNA analysis. Blah. Bad Kitty.

    I laughed and laughed at Kitty=^..^= I love all your posts BUT this one has got to be the funniest! I have sent it to a few friends (hope its ok)because its so fun. With my furry crew of 7 I never know what will be next-like a baby bunny in my bedroom yesterday 🙁 Tried to rescue it but alas he died. On our farm we have lots and lots of rabbits, thus the name of our farm- Rabbits Run Farm 🙂

    • Suzanne says:

      And always feel free to share anything you see on my blog. Spread the insanity around. :p
