So out with the broccoli and in with a can of baked beans!! Now I only had to chop one thing and open the other (which is my other kitchen job -- hubby hates to use the can opener which is a hand-held one).
Wait! I think I have too many kitchen jobs!!
But I digress... the real subject of this post would be the bestest cat boy ever.... Oliver!
As I am chopping and can opening, in runs Oliver at a gallop...
He starts that winding around your legs thing that cats do. Around and around, in and out, tail hooking around my legs, light brushes with the fur. I'm thinking What on earth does this silly cat want? I check and there's plenty of food in his bowl... plenty of water. He only gets treats when I say "Treat!" and has never asked for them. Hmmm... what on earth?
And then it hits me. It's the can opener! Which is weird since it's a hand-held one and doesn't make noise. But noise enough for a cat apparently, because I see no reason why he would want beans! And hubby hadn't started the chicken....
So, back up a few weeks.... the only time I give Oliver any people food is when we have tuna.
I give him a little of the tuna water to lap up straight from the can (my can opener leaves the edges so they could only cut softened butter) and maybe a teeny tiny bit of tuna. Oliver always runs in when I open a tuna can so that's understandable. He doesn't run in when I open a can of green beans or black eyed peas or something. But baked beans?? Apparently so!
So all that winding around my legs stuff? My guess is that he remembered the can opener and was hoping for a tidbit of tuna!
Oliver says, Is that all there is???
and what happened to my ears??
Oh the indignity of it all...
