The Can

20 Nov

Squashed Soup CanI don’t know what you’re talking about person. What can? Where?

Oh, that one. My younger person’s been home this weekend. He’s the one who eats the stuff in those cans. He never saves any for me. He probably left that can there.

I don’t know why he’d squash that can. Maybe he was bored. Or maybe he was angry and he took it out on that can.

What tooth marks? Where?

On the other side of the can? Then it couldn’t have been me. I can’t even see the other side of the can. Maybe my younger person poked the can with a nail or something.

Besides, how come you’re always asking me? Did you ask Scratchy? He’s got sharp teeth. And claws too. Have you ever met up with those claws?

I bet Scratchy could too have squished that can. Have you ever seen him when he’s mad?

Person, I don’t know how you could possibly think I did it. See, I’ve just been sitting here innocently chewing on my snake the whole time.

Besides, there was hardly anything left to lick in that can.

    Me and Nellie can sympathise. We are always getting the blame for things that We would never do. We are the picture of goodness, itself. It must have been S.O.D. (someotherdoggy) that has visited you, like he comes and sees Us.

      Jasper, that’s it! S.O.D. came and squashed that can and did all the other things that happen around here when my people are gone. He’s so tricky that he sneaks back out of the house before my people get back home.

      Marina, that snake is one of my favorite toys. Its head and tail squeak.

    Are you really innocent, Bongo?

    • Bongo

      November 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm

      Sweet Kitten, you know me. I’d never do anything wrong.

    Definitely Scratchy trying to set you up Bongo. Or, maybe Scratchy knocked that can on the floor & your toothmarks just happened to get on there when you were nicely trying to pick the can up & put it in the trash.

      Lola and Diane, Scratchy is always knocking things on the floor and blaming me. I was trying to get the trash can open (sometimes I can do that) and put that can in there but the trash can wasn’t cooperating. I’m glad you understand.

        You know we understand & it’s obvious that Scratchy’s smirking.

      • Bongo

        Diana and Lola, I always get the blame for everything Scratchy does. And he just lets me.

    How else would you be sure you were finished unless the can was crushed? Lick it, crush it. Sounds like the perfect plan to me.

    Love and licks and crushes,

      Cupcake, I think you’re supposed to crush cans before you recycle them, aren’t you? I was just helping my people out – I mean, I still don’t know what happened.

    Guido, Rosie and Benji like to lick out the yoghurt pots…so they have to take turns…but Charlie does not like yoghurt ..he likes eating the cat food….. I think that they would lick the cans dry if only they were ale to get hold of them

    • Bongo

      November 20, 2012 at 7:35 pm

      Patreciau, cat food is good, but I would lick the yogurt too.

      Benny & Lily, that’s it! It was that billy goat that snuck in here and got that can.

    And anyway, the can way asking for it!

    • Bongo

      November 20, 2012 at 7:36 pm

      Delft, that can was definitely asking for it. If it had gone into the recycling bin by itself it wouldn’t have gotten squashed.

    Oh Bongo! How on earth could anyone accuse you of such a thing? How horrid!

    • Bongo

      November 20, 2012 at 7:37 pm

      FleaByte, I’m so glad you’re on my side. For some reason I’m always getting blamed for everything around here.

    I am sure you are innocent

    Stop on by for a visit

      November 20, 2012 at 7:39 pm

      Kari, thanks for your support. Around here I’m always blamed for everything.

      Cameron, I didn’t do it. Really, truly. You believe me, don’t you?

    Maia and Titan think you are innocent too Bongo 🙂

      November 20, 2012 at 7:41 pm

      Maia and Titan, thanks for your support. My person has got to believe I’m innocent with all this support I’m getting.

    Bongo, there’s something wrong with the tin nowadays, so you’re definetely innocent 😀

    • Bongo

      November 21, 2012 at 11:31 am

      Angels Whisper, that’s it! That can just collapsed by itself. And I’m sure Scratchy knocked it off the counter.

    Looks like those evil birds have been at it again!!

    • Bongo

      November 21, 2012 at 11:31 am

      Misaki, I think you’ve got it right. Those aren’t teeth marks. That’s where the birds pecked at it.

    You are clearly so very innocent and always so well behaved I don’t know why your person is so suspicious of you!!

    • Bongo

      November 21, 2012 at 11:33 am

      Dalton, could you tell my person that? I don’t know why she always thinks I’m up to no good.

      • Dalton

        November 22, 2012 at 1:52 am

        Will do pal!!

    Of course you are innocent Bongo! I knew it I knew it! I’m sure that somepawdy made those tooth marks on the can as if it would be your fault! Grrrr…..
    *whispers* Did it taste good, Bongo? hee hee….

    • Bongo

      November 21, 2012 at 11:34 am

      Kevin, I’m so glad you believe me. And yes, the soup that was left in that can tasted good. I just wish there was more of it. Oops, did I say that?

    Poor Bongo, it is so obvious you would never do such a naughty thing as that. I would bet on Scratchy too…

    • Bongo

      November 21, 2012 at 5:31 pm

      Remy, Scratchy’s always trying to get me in trouble for the things he does.

    LOL! Ginger says Scratchy did it and we can manufacture.. er.. come up with the proof!

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 11:41 am

      Ginger, I’m so glad I’ve got a co-conspirator witness. It’s about time Scratchy got blamed for something.
