Let me tell you a cute story about Pippin, the sweetest cat in the whole world. He's a big 'hunter' and he has these furry little cartoon animal faces that he 'kills' and then brings to you and waits for you to praise him. So, I am in the bathroom recently and Pippin comes in and drops his little piggy head at my feet and stands over it and 'meeps' at me. I go, "Oh, good job, Pippin. What a good boy. You're so ferocious." - "Meep, meep, meep." - "Oh, that's so good. Why don't you kill something else for Lady? How about Froggie? Kill Froggie! Or Buzzy Bee?" - "Meep, meep, meep." - "Lady's hungry. Lady needs a snack for later. Go get Lady a snack."
So then Pippin runs out of the bathrooom and I don't see him for like three minutes, thinking he's gone off to do something else. But then he comes back into the bathroom and he has an empty can of cat food. Big Buddy has to eat special wet food because of his digestion, but my sister usually puts the cans in the recycle, so Idek where Pippin got this from. But it's a can of food and I asked for a snack, so he brought me one. He drops the empty can right on my pile of dirty pajamas and stands over it and starts meeping at me, all proud.
I praised him A LOT. Pippin is the sweetest boy ever, though he's never seemed like the brightest, but here I told him to go get a snack for me and lo, he gets the best snack he can think of...special wet food lickin' leftovers!
What a good boy!
