Cedplop, the Christmas Killer


 Before I post pictures from yesterday's wanderings, I must first bring to your attention a crime so blood-curdling and diabolical, that you may never sleep again: The calculated and brutal murder of the Christmas robin.


 This icon of Christmas joy and glad tidings was mercilessly plucked out of the air and extinguished of life with a neck-snapping bite-n-shake combo.

 What sort of monster could commit such a callous and cruel act, I hear you clamour? 
 Behold the quintessential devil in these matters! Cedplop, ruiner and terroriser!

Caught in the act! Cedplop desperately trying to wash the blood from his paws.

 There won't be a Christmas for Cedplop at Castlette DeVice this year.

    1. Well, he's going to have to do something to earn his keep, and he does seem pretty good at this killing lark...

    2. Well, Zippy my 'manager' enjoyed a train trip to Wolverhampton, where she went in a degus' cage. They chewed off her zip, but even they don't like her...

    3. Cedplop says he'll give it a go as long as you throw in a couple of degus, too - Something to get rid of the nasty taste that he's sure Zippy will leave.

    4. Since Reggie & Ronnie, these particular degus, are eating their way through the entire management of my workplace, I think they'd leave a nasty taste. Would he settle for a nice big Brummie rat?

    1. Humans are weird, Sporran. Who knows why they do the things that they do?

      Ooh! A speck of dust!

    1. Not yet - and they're the easy push-to-one-side ones! He's still working on door handles. Luckily he's quite stupid and easily distracted.

  5. Oh dear! Does she have something against Christmas? What a sweet little bird, have never seen one.

    1. Unless you come for a visit I don't think you're likely to see one of these robins as they're only found in Europe, West Siberia, and North Africa. If you are going to visit, you'd better be quick before Cedplop marmalises them all!

      Speaking of the devil, he may have something against Christmas as he attacked the Christmas tree earlier!
