    Oh yes. Her greedy fiendish eye for the birdies was carefully noted.

    Officer K reporting. Your Honour, I can attest to the incorrigible nature of this wicked creature. On multiple previous occasions I have encountered the headless remains of voles greating me in the kitchen. A toad was found in a shoe. And pity the poor baby chipmunk who more than once was taken from its comfy home in the woodpile and dropped in the bathtub where the feline could torment it without possibility of escape. And yet the suspect protests her innocence, demanding scratches and the prime spot on the laps of those who just moments before had been making great efforts to prevent the conclusion of a heinous crime.

    The mug shot says it all. The defiant eyes of an irredeemable and unrepentant villain. Throw away the keys on this one.
