normally I wouldn't bring this up, and we don't don't want to jump to any conclusions, (it's too late for fingerpointing to happen now, anyway) but we did notice that someone apparently had a little "accident" on the carpet by the back porch. Now, just because you standing there looking guilty for a few moments doesn't mean that you necc. have anything to do with it, but if you did do it (we won't hold it against you -- this time) a more appropriate response than doing the dishes would be to mop the floor!
again, we're not making assumptions, accidents happen! everyone has bad days, but the important thing is to make sure that you take responsibilty for mistakes when they occur.
X, if we're told you once, we've told you a thousand times! get someone to let you out OR use the litter box. It's not that hard! Y can handle it, Xena can handle, even chicken can! jeez.
