Well hello there felines.  So when we left off last week, Neytiri went back to her kitchen and she gasped as she looked on the counter and saw that her cookies had been arranged into the word "TIM"...and into the word "TOM"...

She let out a big meow and I ran into the kitchen and witnessed the spectacle myself...
Suddenly, it dawned on me...the words were backwards!  They were meant to spell out "MIT" and "MOT" in VarMIT The MarMOT!

I returned to the foyer to address the "Final Unusual Suspect"...and Varmit The Marmot was nowhere to be found!  The deers said he took off at full speed without so much as a good-bye!  My furs were ruffled by this and I had to give the deers the disappointing news that no more cookies would be served and that the Num-Nums Taste Test was cancelled...They left Headquarters in search of flowers to snack on... 

I headed to the backyard of Headquarters where the landscaping crew was gathered...No one was talking.  It was impossible to spot Varmit The Marmot in the crowd...

When instructed to form an "Unusual Suspects Line-Up" in return  for free Num-Nums, the marmots  arranged themselves accordingly...Everymarmot looked exactly the same! 

I managed to get theese little guy on his own and I just knew he was a "talker"!  Sure enough...when promised some extra Num-Nums he "spilled the beans"!  He said he noticed Varmit The Marmot playing "hopscotch" a few moments ago and told me to take a gander at the sidewalk...

On the sidewalk, where the little Marmot had pointed to was a secret message!  It said "What happens in..."

I put my thinking cap back on, took a look at the drawing of a lucky, four-leaf clover and deciphered the message to be part of a famous saying: "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

When I went back inside, I couldn't believe my eyes!  Neytiri said that a mysterious note had shown up outside our front door...

 It is our 1st Clue in "The Amazing Tunnel Chase"...

It said "Make Your Way To Your First Pit Stop: Sin City".

Mini-Cloon has "suited-up" with his formal bow tie and packed his suitcase...He is headed to Sin City to chase down Varmit The Marmot!

While in Vegas looking for a clue as to the whereabouts of Varmit The Marmot and my missing tunnel, my two Purrsonal Assistants: My Human and Mini-Cloon will attend BlogPaws!

We will return on Thursday, May 15th for our next installment of our new series "Tunnel Chase Tuesday".

Have a great week till then Audience!
