What the mouses?
WHO CALLED THE COPS?
Andy. Rushy. Come on guys, START HIDIN' THE NIP!
Mason. Tobias. Tess. MAKE SURE ANDY AND RUSHY ARE HIDIN' THE NIP!
Oh my mouses! OH MY MOUSES! OH MY MOUSES! THEY'RE AFTER MY NIP!!!
I knew I shouldn't have been braggin' to that nosey-neighbour-cat 'bout my nip stash. Bet he squealed on me. Bet he squealed on me, for sure. Squealin' is just the sort of thing a nosey-neighbour-cat would do. MOUSES!
Come on Andy, work with me here. Get those nip mice into that desk drawer. And when that drawer is full, start fillin' the next one.
What's that? Peep #1 has papers and things in there?
WHO THE MOUSES CARES ABOUT PEEP #1'S PAPERS? WE'VE GOTTA HIDE OUR NIP!!!
Scratch that. Let's go straight to plan B.
ANDY, STOP SCRATCHIN' BEHIND YOUR EAR!
When I said scratch that, I didn't mean...
Awww... Amateurs. AMATEURS! I'm workin' with amateurs, for sure. MOUSES!
Come on guys. Grab a nip mouse between your teeth, and head on upstairs. Peep #1 has a whole whack of dresser drawers up there. Dresser drawers holdin' nothin' but underwear and stuff, and drawers full of drawers are PURRfect hidin' places, for sure. The police will never look there. Why, I wouldn't look in those drawers myself if I weren't in dire need of a place to hide my stash of nip. MOUSES!
COME ON! Grab those nip mice and I'll meet you upstairs! I'll be up there emptying out those drawers so that you can fill 'em with the mice. And someone grab that baggy of dried nip the peep bought at the health food store! The police will be after that, for sure.
Oh hello there, Peepers.
What's that, Peepers? What am I doin'? Why am I pullin' open your dresser drawers and emptying them of your... drawers?
Well uh... Um... Well you see...
It's an emergency drill.
Yup, that's it. An emptying-out-of-dresser-drawers-holdin'-drawers emergency drill. Didn't you hear 'bout that? Didn't you hear 'bout how that was scheduled for today? I'm sure it was on the news and everythin'. Everybody in the neighbourhood is supposed to empty out all their dresser drawers containin' drawers today at uh... Um... Whatever time it is right now.
MASON! TOBY! TESS! GET FILLIN' THOSE DRAWERS!!! I'll distract the peep with some more witty conversation and whatnot and...
There's no time for that Andy. We've gotta hide the nip before the police come knockin' down the front door and...
What's that, Rushton? You say you looked and there's no one at the front door waitin' to break it down?
Well OBVIOUSLY they'll knock first. I watch Blue Bloods, NCIS, Law and Order and the like. The police almost always knock first. THEN they break down the door. We've gotta hide the nip before that happens and...
Pardon me, Rushy? You say you looked and there's no one waitin' at the front door at all? No one knockin'? No one askin' to get in?
OH MY MOUSES! THEY MUST BE AT THE BACK!!! Come on guys, let's get to work hidin' that nip! Grab another nip mouse and...
CAN'T TALK NOW PEEPERS. I'm busy hidin' these nip mice and...
PEEPERS! What the mouses did you do that for? Why did you close that dresser drawer and...
AND WHY ARE ALL MY NIP MICE OUT HERE ON THE FLOOR?
You took 'em out of the drawer, put your own stuff back in, and closed the drawer behind you?
What's that Mason? Really? REALLY? REALLY?
You don't say.
Okay Peepers. There's nothin' to see here. It was a false alarm. Mason says that ol' police car drove right on past the house. Never stopped. Never even glanced our way. Guess they weren't after my nip mice after all.
And by the way, sorry 'bout the hairball I coughed up in that bottom drawer. Blame it on nerves. Thinkin' the police are plannin' a catnip raid can make a kitty nervous enough to cough up a hairball, for sure. MOUSES!
