I'm not sure what's going on because Daddy has come home early and they are both buzzing around the house, tidying up and ironing clothes and things. I think they must be going out, it's very rare that they do that together so I was a little surprised at all this action, it has however got River all intrigued and she's following them around like a little lost puppy, pardon the pun, and it's left me with some alone time to think.
Think about how I can get into the cupboard by the back door as I've spied a nice bit of rope in there, just the other side of River's treats, that I can use to latch around the secret rooms door knob and pull the door open, creep inside and get to see if Greego The Pixie is real or just a figment of my imagination.
So I have the second part of my plan worked out, I did that yesterday, I'm now musing on the first part, getting the rope.
The sun must be lucky for me as all of a sudden just as a beam shone through the window and warmed the back of my neck bingo! I had it.
The answer was staring me there in my face all along, River's treats. When Daddy opens the door to get River a treat I somehow need to either creep in there unnoticed, pretty unlikely, or get River all excited that she knocks them all over the floor. Daddy will then rush around clearing them up before she eats them all and in this confusion I can quick swipe my paws in there, grab it and take it upstairs and await the right time to make my spectacular break-in.
The more I think about it the more this plan strikes me as a winner, there' no way it can fail! Right I just need to hang around by the backdoor the next time River goes out into the back garden, they always have to use the promise of a treat to get her back in, she won't come otherwise!
