Guilty as Charged

“What do you think they’re going to do to us when they find us guilty?” she says after a few minutes of silence have passed.
“Honestly?”
“Does now seem like the time for honesty?”
I look at her from the corner of my eye. “I think they’re going to force us to eat lots of [tuna] cake and then take an unreasonably long nap.”

~Veronica Roth, Insurgent~


The Crime

Cat shoves papers off the human’s computer desk while she sleeps.

The Suspects

Gibbs and Ziva

The Verdict

Gibbs is guilty as charged. Extremely guilty.

Ziva was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but the judge knew better and she was found innocent.

The Sentence

Gibbs was given a light sentence of three hours in the green room without human interaction. His friendly, outgoing, adorable personality provided mitigation. Gibbs joined Ziva in a nap without benefit of a tuna cake. It is feared by the judge that since he takes no responsibility for his actions, he will be a lifelong paper-pushing criminal.


This post has been brought to you by the judge and an assortment of abused papers. It has also been brought to you by Linda G. Hill’s “One-Liner Wednesday.” All you need to play along every week is an awesome one-liner and follow a few rules. Birds on a wire are not required, but make sure you link back today’s post to HERE so the rest of us #1linerweds peeps can read it.

    I love it when they look like they’re saying “it wasn’t me! I swear!” I bet the judge lets him off for good behavior or just being so dang cute.

    Ha! The look on both their faces: one refuses to make eye contact, and the other dares you to look at him. What a riot!

      The shamed and shameless, Lois. I have quite the pair here, both of whom are probably sleeping in the sun while I toil for their kibble. Doesn’t seem fair…

    I love their expressions!! They are my cats’ heroes – way to go Gibbs!! 😉

    • bikerchick57 says:

      My hero is going to be a criminal to the very end. Much like Dennis the Menace, he can’t help himself. 😼

    LOL! Cats. You know, I had an experience like that last night, but it had to do with a 3 year old and a makeup drawer, and then a tub of spackle. I’ll let you fill in the details.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Ohmigosh, that’s a hilarious image, but I suppose it wasn’t hilarious last night. I hope the 3 year old didn’t mistake the spackle for make-up. That would be hard to wash off! :-p

  5. Herman says:

    Oh yes… that look cats can give you… So funny, no wait a minute… it can be very scary! 😉

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I hope Mr. Bowie isn’t scaring you today. Quick, Herman, give him a treat and pat on the head so he’ll leave your papers alone!

    That photo will end up in one of those funny cat compilations – or it should ! Never have I seen such a look …

    • bikerchick57 says:

      That Gibbs can be quite the little devil (or should I say convict?). If throwing papers on the ground doesn’t work, he has other tricks up his paw to get my attention and get himself in trouble.

  7. Joanne Sisco says:

    But, but, I’m pretty sure Gibbs didn’t do it on purpose and doesn’t deserve the punishment …. unlike Theo. He deliberately tosses stuff to get my attention and then waits for me to respond. Little brat.

      • Joanne Sisco says:

        you mean the little furry devil DID do it on purpose and then pretended to be innocent?! That is inspired!
        Theo stands by his devilry with a challenging look on his face.

      • bikerchick57 says:

        This is one of the ways that Gibbs tries to get me up before I want to…for food. Push papers, beat on the closet door, paw at my head, etc. Brat!
