Stop the Church Hill pansy thief!

From Katie at the Church Hill Animal Hospital:

This is the second time we have had flower dug up from our outdoor planter on the corner of 25th and Marshall St. Not sure if you can tell by the attached picture, but there is a large hole where the purple pansies used to be. The business across the street (Pets at Play) has had their 2 bushes stolen out of their pots several months ago also. It would be appreciated if everyone could keep an eye out for any suspicious looking people walking around with freshly dug up plants! Just trying to beautify Church Hill… sigh

To clarify, “pansy” is describing what was stolen, and is not a declaration about the character of the thief.

CHPN fully believes that the flower thief is a scary and threatening individual and is in no way picking a fight with the pan…person.

Paint your pansies. Then the culprit will be caught… red-handed…. ????

I’m sure some of those spare cats at the animal hospital saw something. I wonder if they’re involved (queue cat burglar jokes).

BTW, when is CHAH going to turn all those spare cats into a cash juggernaut by having the cat room be a cat café? (Million dollar idea, you heard it here first. Shhh, don’t tell the neighbors.)

Someone must be running a black market nursery!
This summer peonies were dug up in my front yard.
