In addition to efurrything else that Domino does on a regular basis, she moonlights as a PURRivate InvestiCATor -- actually she moonlights mostly during the day, but will do whatever it takes to solve a case.  If this means doing a stakeout after midnight, she's all for it!

"I alwais enjois a good STEAK-OUT, speshully durin' BBQ seesun!", says Domino.

"I yam verreh PURRsistent, even wen I cums up against a brick wall."

"I'm onna noo case dat hits verreh close to home -- mainly cuz it involves da next-door nayPURRs", says Domino.  "Dis is dere gardin last yeer."
(Biggify to see da whole fing.  Do you see me at da bottom of da big twee?)

"An' dis is wot it looks like now!", she says.
(Biggify again)

Domino starts by investigating the porch.  There's not much new except this heavy stone urn.

"But is empteh!", exclaims Domino.  "Efurryfing is disaPEERrin' arownd heer!"

"Nuttin's gonna stop ME frum nosin' arownd!", declares Domino.

"I sees dere's a seeder bush.  Dis is noo!"

However, where there used to be a lush garden, there's now just dry earth.

"Dis is a case fur Inspectah Domino!  I calls it da "Case of da Missin' Gardin".

"An' wif da red mulchies -- no wondah I feels likes I'm on Mars!"

"Dey has takin a 'hosta' hostage, I see!"

"Undah dis twee dere yoosta be sum luffly gween purrywinkle ..."

"... I remembahs it well!"

"Now dere is just sum dried-up seeder mulchies!  I tells yoo itsa reel crime."

"I'm afraid I'm gonna hasta turn dis wun ovah to da PAWlice!  I has dun da legwork, but dey hasta lay da charges.  Dere's a long list of offences!  I noes I'm certainly offended by dis travesty, so I'm gonna giff da cops all of da evidents dat I fownd."

Later that day the neighbours were charged with vandalism, kidnapping and murder.  They were undeniably the culPURRits responsible for destruction of a garden, holding a hosta against it's will, and killing perfectly healthy plants, flowers and bushes only to replace them with a Martian landscape!

Well done, Domino!
Case closed.

Good job, Domino! You're an excellent investigator...Maybe you could have your own television program! A garden CSI show, purrhaps.

We certainly hope your neighbours paid a hefty fine, at the very least, for their garden mayhem!

We think for a fine you should let Dante release his "inferno" (inFURRno?)on the red mulch, Domino!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

You are a very thorough investigator Domino!

Domino, I'm sure gardens everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief with you on the job!

Domino, that was a suPURR investigating job! Now why they want to kill in-no-scent flowers like dat? We are proud of you.

We want to tell you too, we are so sorry we did not get back to you back at the beginning of August. But see, our Mumsy has been having serious organizational problems. We so appreciate your kind invitation to be LOL-Cats! We are so excited! We'd love to do that! You are most welcome to use pictures from our site. We just so appreciate the invitation, please don't let our Mumsy's lack of organization think we don't. Please let us know what else we can do, as we are just so pleased and excited! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Many (((hugs))) and kitty kisses
