I know I’ve previously called our cat the saber-toothed tiger, but his new most-used names are hobo cat and trash cat. Why? Well, here’s a list of the things he’s stolen off the counter in the last month:
- Plum cake (didn’t love it, but kept at it)
- Leftover takeout Chinese
- Dog food
- Crusted scrambled eggs left in the pan after dinner
- Miso salmon (this one was kind of a gimmie)
- Corn tortilla
- Plain yogurt
The list is by no means representative of everything he’s tried to eat or at least swipe his litterbox paws through. In retrospect parts of this list may also reflect poorly on us for having these things around, but in our defense there were a lot of salads and sauteed vegetables that occurred in that time period too, in which he showed no interest. He is on a restricted diet, but as you can see, he’s not wasting away.
Dignity, 0. Cat, 1. And now, a video of said consumption for your viewing pleasure. I’d like to lie and say the house isn’t usually this much of a mess, but it really is about 50% of the time, so no dice.
