Fish strikes again

Started a new medication today, which must be taken on an empty stomach and with no food to follow for 1 hour. So I get up, take the pill, and retrieve 2 muffins (a sort of banana-bran muffin made with a Kashi cereal) from the freezer to thaw a little in the intervening hour.

Fifty minutes later, I wander by the kitchen, and see Fish hurriedly jump from the counter to the floor. One partly-defrosted muffin has been extracted from the kitchen towel I had wrapped them in, and has been about a third eaten. Crumbs are scattered all around--cat teeth not being well-designed for eating muffins.

While Fish has a continuing problem of getting on the dining room table when I'm not home, I had seen no evidence of him getting on the kitchen counter, even though I occasionally let very tempting stuff sit out for more than an hour, unguarded, during dinner prep or mealtimes. Why did low-cal high-fiber muffins entice him when chicken or beef did not?

Strange cat.

My first cat never messed with meats that were thawing on the counter (a perfect gentleman), but he absolutely loved angel food cake, and would nag at me until I fed it to him, a bit at a time.

I've had cats who liked strange things in the past, such as the chocolate frosting off poptarts, or boloney [she was perfectly happy with the stuff off the red rind], or even bread. But this current cat not only likes icecream lids, she also likes grits and even crackers. Unfortunately, today she also likes pursuing, clawing, & biting me. ;( [but not Himself; is my cat sexist, or what?]

LOL. I scanned the first few paragraphs quickly, not realizing that Fish was a cat.

I had the most wonderfully goofy image of a badly behaved and adventuresome goldfish. Then I pictured it trying to jump back into the bowl, succeeding, with only a wet spot on the table to confound you when you returned!

Sometimes, I amaze even myself at how easily I am entertained (g).

Having a cat named Fish often creates confusion--if I speak a little too quickly, the phrase "my cat, Fish" is heard as "my catfish". I get some strange looks that way.

(I didn't name him, by the way. But somehow, it suits him.)
