Bacon Mystery

It happened early in the morning.

Mrs. Eggs, housewife in suburban Georgia,
found her bacon gone missing.

Mrs. Eggs:
"It disappeared while I was in a bathroom."

As cat paw prints were found at the
crime scene, FBI began investigation.

*FBI (Feline Behavior Improvement):
Non-profit organization whose mission is to
improve naughty cat behavior

FBI agent: "Paw print matched one on our
database. We have a suspect."

FBI agent: "Goro. We found your paw prints
at the crime scene."

FBI agent: "You kidnapped the bacon.
Where is it?"

As FBI couldn't find evidence to link Goro
to kidnapping, they asked CI for help.

FBI agent: "That's it! We'll follow
Goro and catch him when he barfs."

And later...

FBI agent: "Goro, freeze!
We are gonna inspect that barf."

FBI agent: " just barfed cat grass.
But then, who took the bacon?"


Later that evening

FBI agent: "FBI!"

"Put your paws up, Niko!"


FBI agent: "Here is what happened."

"Niko is the one who kidnapped bacon."

"Then he conspired to frame Goro."

"Knowing cat grass would upset Goro's 
stomach, Niko provided disinformation."

FBI agent: "But he couldn't fool us.
Mrs. Eggs, here is your bacon."

Mrs. Eggs: "Um, that's an interesting

"This is not my bacon. It's a toy."

FBI agent: "What? Then, where is the bacon??"

Mr. Eggs: "Honey, I'm home."

Mrs. Eggs: "Oh, darling, glad you are home."

Mr. Eggs: "What's going on?"

Mrs. Eggs: "My bacon went missing and..."

Mr. Eggs: "Oh, yeah. I took it for snack
when I left for work this morning. I
was gonna ask but you were in bathroom.
You didn't mind, right?"

FBI agent: "Uh-oh..."


FBI agent: "We are so sorry,
Mr. Niko, Mr. Goro."

FBI agent: "Um..we'll make up for your trouble.
How about nice, non-salt turkey bacon for you?"

New FBI protocol:
"Always suspect human before accusing feline"

This story is fictitious. Any resemblance to real
names or organizations is purely coincidental :-)


  1. I LOVE it!!!! AND it had a surprise ending! You are so funny. I thought for sure Goro had eaten the bacon.

  2. A real page -turner! I was on the edge of my seat! And nice action shots of barf too! Four paws up!

  3. Oh My Goodness !
    It was a mystery with a surprise ending.
    The FBI should know better...
    Always suspect the man if there is bacon around.
    Remember everything is better with bacon.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. OMC!! What a story...real bacon, stunt bacon, suspense, and a surprise!!!

    This has gotta be your best post yet. And I *loved* the pixilated barf--classic!

  11. the rule in this house is, unattended bacon is bacon up for grabs..

  12. Oh, that was quite a mystery but we were thinking surely you sweeties didn't kidnap that bacon. Glad the mystery was finally solved. You boys deserve a special treat after all that. Hugs and nose kisses

  13. Boys, I LOVED this mystery story of intrigue and stealth and deliberate setting up of innocent victim. The fine display of assumptions is unparalleled! I am glad you boys chronicled this for us. We can be on lookout against such dastardly deeds done to us! My thanks and love to you both.


  14. This is Katie. I know you know that. Mom seems to be unable to grasp that salient fact.

  15. So many twists and turns! We were on the edge of our seat the whole time! Kitties, how dare Mrs. Eggs accuse you of such a horrid crime... she should give you turkey bacon every day for a week to make up for this! ;)

  16. That was quite the story and I never saw that ending coming!

  17. Hahaha that was an amazing story. I got entertained. Poor innocent cats had to undergo such investigation to which crime done by a human :) I love the cats faces too, you have all the expressions in their faces to match the story. :)

  18. Wow, great plot twist. I'm not surprised that Goro has a record as an arms snuggler. So cute!

  19. The Bacon Mystery ... oh my, what an amazing story ... !
    I too thought Goro was the suspect :-)
    Seems things went wrong with the investigation ... glad you could make it up to Goro and Niko ... :-)
    Have a nice week,

  20. I hope someone doesn't have a sore tummy from that...LOL.


  21. OMC, that was quite the mystery You had us on edge until the final reveal. But we cannot believe the bean would think a kitty would steal the bacon! We are so glad justice was done, MOL

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

    Thank you so much for your kind words last week over our loss of Maxx. They are very much appreciated and are working magic toward healing our hearts. Thank you!

  29. MOL!!HUmans always blame the kitties first :/
    Now, if this was the home of the "Lone Star Cats", who live for bacon, we would have believed your Mom's accusations ;)
    We liked the fake bacon part ;)

    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  30. oh please, you must be the "A Gata" (Portuguese: the cat) Christie of blog mistery cat romances!

  31. I can’t believe you were accused! It’s always the humans who are huilty guilty guilty. You did give us a laugh.

  32. Whoa, so many twists and turns in this mystery story, we love it! Awesome post! We get a real kick out of Goro the "arms snuggler", that catnip bacon was a real red herring! Have a wonderful week, sweet friends! Happy Lunar New Year!

  33. Tamago san!
    Goro san & Niko san. I love both of long times but you NEVER send me great story for me,
    My best friends Ramblingon are my sister I has send to you in the past of years ago.

  34. Tamago! I didn't know that you lived in Georgia! I don't know any other pet blogger friends in Georgia - what a nice surprise :) I wonder if we are very far from each other? We must be, since we didn't get any freezing rain or ice down in my neck of the woods. Macon is too far south for that, thankfully! Hope you all are keeping warm!

  35. That is SUCH a great story. It made the Mom laugh out loud. Too cute and you boys didn't steal the bacon at all. You all have a great day.

  36. This is hilarious. Poor kitties. It's no fun being accused of a crime.
