Deputy Dickens' Report 4-13-05

Sometime during the early morning hours, Mommy's memorial garden was attacked. Unaware of the situation, Mommy was snug in her bed dreaming happy thoughts while her garden was the scene of a heinous crime. The memorial garden, pictured on the left prior to the attack, was undergoing a transformation of the most beatiful kind. Having just planted the ranunculus and soprano daisies, Mommy was looking forward to planting more later this week and laying down mulch.

Be warned. Due to the graphic nature of the photos you are about to see, parental poodie advice is required. These photos are not for kitten eyes.



I heard a commotion and ran to the window in time to witness this attack underway. I pawed at the window and watched, wide-eyed in horror as Mommy's beautiful plants became a glorious meal to one hungry herd of deer. The leader of the pack, a.k.a. "Big Bad Deer" has been taken in for questioning and has pleaded guilty on all charges of destruction of property, unlawful tresspassing, robbery and disrespect to a memorial garden (the flagpole garden was created in memory of Mommy's daddy...my grampa). Big Bad Deer had this to say, "Does anyone have a salt lick? I'd like to cleanse my pallet." Big Bad Deer seems to not feel any remorse for what has been done to the memorial garden. The only regret the deer had was not having any salad dressing to go with that delicious array of ranunculus and soprano daisies.

The memorial garden attack is just the latest in a series of crimes to occur in the yard. I am now wondering if Big Bad Deer is in cahoots with Mr. Squirrel who has been accused of birdie seed robbery. I would like to bring Mr. Squirrel in for questioning and continue my 'vestigation into these crimes but I need your help. Ever since the lockdown on the feeder, Mr. Squirrel has been MIA. If anyone knows the whereabouts of the infamous Mr. Squirrel that has been ravaging the birdie feeder, you are advised to report any information to Deputy Dickens.

Big Bad Deer also comes down south and nibbles on gardens. Between him and the rabbits it is hard to grow anything (even catnip). I'm glad you are on duty to watch over things.

Wow, the only bandits we have are big, bad mongooses who really aren't that bad. They help control the wild rodent population. Good 'vestigating though. ~Merlin, Shadow, and Ko Ko

Oh no! Once in a while we get racoons and possums here. Once my dad thought a possum was a giant rat! I hope your mom can fix up the garden.

Oh no! This sounds like a job for the Sheriff Jinky. He seems good at vestigating these types of things. The garden looked so pretty, I hope it can be fixed up.

Oh man, that really stinks! Too bad I wasn't there, I would've chased the deer away.

What is a deer, anyway?

Dad says that there might be moose living around here, so Mom'll have to watch for those when she plants her flowers. Other than that, the only thing I see around here are turkeys.

Oh no! I'm sorry your Mommy'e really purrrty memorial garden got attacktededed. :( :( You have so many neato creatures that come through your area! At best I can hope to spy a raccoon so far as out of the ordinary go. Squirrels are common here.

I can't imagine a deer!

Your poor Mommy. I'd come help try to put the garden back together.

That deer was very mean to do that to your mommy's pretty garden. I'd tell you to put the bite on him but he seems pretty big.

The deer must have thought he was at a new tasty salad bar. There are going to be some big bad headaches this summer...

Oh well, I guess your mommy will have to plant a new garden. The deer was cute. Why doesn't your mommy plant a garden for the cute deer then the deer won't eat yours.

Kelly, I think you're right! Mommy says he was looking for the salad dressing! After the treat at our house, they headed up the hill to our friend's house and was lookin' for some tasty things in their backyard.
