This is the sight which greeted George
when he went
to open the polytunnel doors
the other morning.
Funnily enough, he didn't notice the gaping hole
until after he'd opened the first door.
Our imaginations ran riot as we tried to think
what could possibly have happened,
surely too much damage
to have been caused by a cat
but could it have been done by a fox?
The penny dropped when we were inspecting the damage,
and were joined by Toby Too.
His guilty face,
plus the incriminating high-level claw marks
(Toby is a bit of a demon for standing on his back legs to open doors)
added to the fact that George then remembered that TT
had followed him into the polytunnel
the previous evening,
but he forgot to check that he had gone back out
before he locked up.
Toby couldn't have been in there for much more than ten minutes
because he was back in the kitchen at supper time.
Luckily, TT had gone through one small panel
which was easily repaired.
So don't worry, Jonny!
In his defence,
that was the day when George was feeling ill.
If only he had listened to nurse,
and taken the medicine,
I'm fairly sure this wouldn't have happened.
