Should I Cry ... or Laugh

I am here to let you know that Del is no more … she has gone… sadly I fear to Altered Duck Heaven.

She was sitting quietly on the table, now able to see, as her eyes had been newly marked in, awaiting the next step in her exciting makeover ... when without warning ... she took flight. I fear that it was with a little help from one of my mischievous felines, who may have been jealous of the attention paid to her.

The prime suspects are …

Phoebe alias Rat Wawa (long story!)…

Lucky …


and Mika

…….all of who suffer from severe cases of kleptomania.

No foam brush or length of ribbon is safe and elastic bands are carried around as trophies, if found before being disposed of. Bottle caps washed for re-use of the plastic bottle (helping the environment and all that) are unearthed from the draining board even when hidden under a mug or bowl and used as footballs!

I have hunted high and low …even begged for her return with the offer of treats but to no avail. I can only hope is that she is being held hostage in a hiding place I have yet to find but the future looks bleak and if she is released, I am sure she will require a total make over.

DD has offered to get me a replacement but I fear, at the moment, my heart is not in altering anything … after all there is still a glimmer of hope for Dels’ return.

I shall close now ... hoping for a safe return. xx

Oh nooooooooo! What are they demanding for her safe return? Pay them, pay the ransom!

Aw poor Del. She may yet appear you never know - or you may get a postcard and snapshot from some far flung holiday destination now that she can see... we can but hope.

Oh lawks! You shouldn't really surrender to blackmail, it'll never go away!! Poor Del..I wonder if she does return, willshe have tiny claw and tooth shape puncture marks?! Did we pay her too much attention and make the suspects jealous? Oh no!

LOL I'm sorry but I laughed so much. He sounds just like our adopted cat George who steals everything to play with.

Here's hoping for her safe return!
