The Guilty Party

“Someone — or something — is destroying our laundry on the wash line,” said the neighbor.

“How’s that?” was the reply.

“It pulls yarns and makes holes.”

“Must be the neighbor’s cat,” came the reply. 

And somewhere in the blogosphere, a thousand cat lovers meowed in protest.

Hearing the ruckus, the guilty one left the scene of the crime, still wearing its bandit mask.

The feline community immediately demanded accountability for such a brazen and shameless deed, specially since its reputation was dragged into it.

The guilty one deigned innocence. “That’s fake news,” it said, even if the camera doesn’t lie.
