I love It n no doubt about it

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When a local cat lady is found dead in her home, Grissom, Catherine and Warrick must discover how she died, and who killed her. Elsewhere, Sara and Nick investigate an explosion from a bomb in the engine of a woman's car.

Marcie Tobin had driven the car to a repair shop to find out the source of a weird noise in her car engine. The mechanic claimed to have looked under the hood, saw the bomb and told her to run. The investigators realize that the bomb aimed at the driver, suggesting that it was intentional and personal, as bombs usually are. Upon sifting through the fragments of the blast, Nick comes across an end cap, indicating that the bomb was a pipe bomb. Brass, having run a background check on the victim's husband, inform them that he works at Tobin C&D, a demolitions company, prompting Sara and Nick to pay him a visit. They interview Jonathan Claddon, the husband, and find that he knows how to make a bomb, raising their suspicion. At that point, the owner of the company, Barclay Tobin, who is also Marcie's father, orders Jonathan away. Barclay Tobin makes it clear that he dislikes his son-in-law, suspecting him to be cheating on his daughter. He also tells them that all his foremen, including Jonathan, has access to dynamite, voluntarily offering them employee fingerprint records. A visit to Greg reveals that dynamite containing sawdust add nitro, identical to those used at Tobin C&D, was used in the bomb. Investigators notice that the latch was blown open so the hood must have been closed when the bomb went off. Sara and Nick surmise that no one would slam the hood on a ticking time bomb. Also there were no fingerprints so they suspect the mechanic was lying. Nick finds that tool marks on a bomb fragment match a vice grip found at the car repair shop, and match the prints to Marcie Tobin, It turns out that she and her father had tried to frame Jonathan for attempted murder to prevent him from getting a stake in the family business in the event of a divorce, as a a criminal can't benefit from his own malfeasance.

In the end it turns out that the 8-year-old girl next door had stabbed the cat lady with a pen because she refused to give her one of the cats as a pet.

The review is simple. Its capture me a little. I was froze the kids blame the mother . All i can say is this is a classic all time CSi episode

CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Cats in the Cradle..

Author: Scarecrow-88 from United States
2 January 2011

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Disconcerting episode of CSI has members of the team investigating cases on a "cat lady" stabbed in the chest, found inside the home, her corpse feasted on by the felines she so loved and protected & a car bomb which seemed to be targeting the daughter of a demolition company's owner. The sight of an old woman being fed on by an army of cats is certainly an indelible image that is sure to remain in the memory and the way the car bomb case concludes leaves a bad taste(it concerns setting up someone so that the one responsible could get shares in a company). The killer of the old woman sure chills the bones, that's for sure. The testimony by a mechanic, finger prints of an employee of the demolition company in regards to the pipe bomb used, vice-grips marks, and the exploded car itself all could play a hand in solving the case. A cat with staph infection, a heel shoe print, an empty safe, and a pen could all help Grissom and Catherine finger the particular suspect behind the cat lady's murder. The number of suspects which develop in the cat lady's murder certainly prove that she seemed to rub a lot of people the wrong way, her insistence to devote her entire being to those cats over everything else alienated/polarized her from the suburban community for which she lived.
