What is eating my peppermint?

I grow a peppermint plant in a big pot. I have a
peppermint plant every year. Sometimes it overwinters, sometimes not, but I never lost a leave to anything.
This morning I moved the pot unter the overhang, because the rain had flooded the pot. About 15 minutes ago I went out to get chives from the adjoining planter and noticed that the top leaves of the peppermint were all nibbled on to about half their size. I don't mind for some beasty to eat them, just wonder who might have done this. I now it was not a deer or rabbit. Another one of those riddles you run into.

Hmmm, it could be a kitty thinking it may be catnip.

Might be but not mine, she is one of the ones who are not affected by catnip.

Not sure, the mints are usually pest free. But whoever it is it will have nice breath.

Did not think many critters liked mint. As Gandle says look for the ones with nice breath.

Could it be the notorious Peppermint Patty???

Tried to line up the backyard zoo for a breathalizer test, but the suspects did not cooperate.
