Purrfect Fitness (The Mysteries of Max 29)

Go for the burn…

I don’t know if you’ve ever shared your home with a fitness fanatic? Well, I have, and I must say it is a most disturbing experience. Both my humans are fitness nuts, you see, and like nothing more than to contort themselves into strange positions, then jump up and down while sweating profusely. Things didn’t improve when fitness celebrity Randy Hancock came to stay with us. He’d recently been injected with a slow-acting toxin and only had four days to live. So he asked Odelia to save him. It was the beginning of a troubling time, more so because he’d brought along his dog Little Randy.

Meanwhile Brutus had struck up an unlikely friendship with a turtle, and Gran an even unlikelier one with Wilbur Vickery, going so far as to actually start dating the man. Soon rumors of an upcoming wedding were doing the rounds, prompting Dooley to fear he’d have to move out along with Gran to go and live with her new husband and Wilbur’s cat Kingman. And then of course there was The Affair: Marge being caught in the arms of Randy, creating a second rumor mill that predicted divorce. It was all cause for great concern, and one of my most perspiratory mysteries yet.
