The Phantom Returns

Last weekend I bought some crinoline lady saucers for my hedgehogs and stray cat to eat from as I like them to have pretty china.

This morning when I drew the blinds I found the phantom had paid a visit and told me what he thought.

I suspect it is a fox but it keeps happening….. I soak all the saucers in bleach or Milton solution before they go into the dishwasher but really.
Perhaps it's like a bad restaurant review?


  1. Oh, how naughty!

    Someone told me once that bleach doesn't cover the smell of animal doings and it won't stop them peeing (or more in a specific place)... not sure if that helps at all though.

    Valula :-)

    P.S. Glad you hadn't cooked the food yourself though!

  2. Hello Valula,
    Soaking the saucers in Miltons/bleach certainly removes the fox smell from them and hopfully kills 99% of all known germs before it goes into the dishwasher....but you are right about bleach not working if you use it where dogs or cats have peed.
    It could be a cat 'turf war'....who knows what goes on during the night.

  3. Oh my goodness - that made me laugh!

  4. Whoever/whatever it is, they certainly have a very precise aim...

  5. eeek! that sure is a message and a half. i hope they are ashamed of themselves whoever they are...and on pretty crinoline ladies too?!

  6. Well, if you were a fox.. wouldn't you do it on a nice pretty plate...?
    Ps love the fire bucket, hundreds of uses...

  7. Most strange, not very nice though!
    not sure what to suggest really!

  8. Oh dear.
    He's posted his comment....

  9. I've never laughed so loudly at a blog entry!

    Actually, I may be wrong in this but I think I did read ages ago that animals are attracted by the smell of bleach!
