Stumbling into the dark bathroom this morning, my toes encountered something odd something making a sticky slurping sound as my bare feet met it. Once my eyes had adjusted to the light I could see the floor was shiny - as if someone had spilled a sugary drink. Ewww, was it slugs? And then, behind the cat's water bowl, I discovered the source.
One of the cats must have liberated the dayglo lollipop from a party bag secreted in my offspring's lairs. Though exactly who decided they might take a little lick and then proceed to enjoy the spoils all over my bathroom floor remains a mystery.
In an effort to flush out the criminal, I have held the offending lolly in front of both cats and not one tongue has appeared. Clearly they are smart enough not to incriminate themselves. Either that or they have already consumed quite enough sugar for one day.
A quick google shows perhaps this behaviour is not as odd as I might have thought. Who knew?
