Let us at 'em
Mom and Dad are growing vegetables this year. It's the first time they've tried a garden. It doesn't sound too exciting to us, but they seem pretty happy with it. They planted a bunch of tomatoes -- Mom really likes tomatoes. A little while back they had two that were almost ready to pick, but then when Dad went to water the garden he noticed they were gone. Then this week there was another one that was almost ready, but last night Dad saw it was gone. Obviously there's something out there dining on Mom's delicious (?) tomatoes. We suspect the squirrels, because really if you are going to suspect someone it's best to start with the squirrels. Clearly, they're never up to any good. Too bad for the garden that we are indoor cats, because you know we'd be patrolling the heck out of the back yard and there would be no squirrels. In the meantime we'll be watching from the windows and Mom and Dad will be trying to figure out a way to actually get to eat a tomato.
