: Evening, Sheriff Twigg!
: I was hopin' I'd find you at home this evening, since I have need of a little help. I believe my old hound Hector and I have located Miss Gaylee's kitten, Painter. Not such a kitten any more. No not at all. It's growed about double it's size in the couple of months it's been roamin' free in the woods, but I know it's the same animal, since there's no mistakin' that shredded ear Hector gave it in that foray at Miss Marcia's some time ago.
: Now, my problem is this - - Hector and I tracked it from the cliffs and down the length of the river and then lost sight of it just as we got to that fine stand of chestnut trees north of town. Hector keeps nosin' around them blackberry bushes near the rocks, but won't go closer than the length of a cat's reach to the edge of the bushes. I think that pussy cat's in there somewhere, and we could probly flush him out right into a good sized net, if'n we worked it right. Can I have the borrow of yer large size fishin' net fer a day or two?

I would be happy to loan you my net, as I think capturing that snarlin' creatur would be a boon to the community. Howsever, it may not serve your purposes as well as we could hope, since Dweebie Day-Lewis was usin' it for knottin' practice last week, and I'm afraid it's a little tangled. He did manage to straighten it out a mite by cuttin' a few of the knots loose, and so it worked pretty well when we fished all you sadsacks outten the river after the hurricane. Yer welcome to try it.
