Trouble in the Pet Shop

There seems to be a little trouble in my son's outdoor pet shop. Actually, there seems to be a little trouble regarding outdoor pets around here. It started when my son's friend came to the door, looking all distraught. "Did Bubba steal my turtle?" Huh? "I don't think so," I said. "Let me check." I went into the woods to see if my son had a turtle in his "pet shop" tank. He didn't. I asked him about the turtle. "Do you know anything about your buddy's missing turtle?" "No," he said. "I just saw it when I was over there. It was in a little container." Then he added, "Mama, my pet tadpoles are gone!" Uh oh. Sure enough, the tank was empty. Something a little fishy is going on here. I think we better keep an eye out for a possible critter thief!

  1. Hmm maybe it's a nature guy wanted to set them free.

    1. I don't know. I have a sneaking suspicion that it was a jealous kid who wanted those critters for himself.

    1. I think you are right. We have quite a few indoor critters, though. I was hoping not to add to that collection.
