Chats du jour: Safecracker, or, If only I had opposable thumbs

Shirley is doing her best to break into the cupboard where we keep the cat food. We heard a door slamming over and over the other day and discovered she had succeeded in opening it. Not in keeping it open, but opening it a bit. Still, we moved the food to a safer location.




She has not figured out how to open the fridge to get to the rabbit terrine that Doc and CheeseGuy brought us back from France. But when we gave her and Laverne a 1/4 tsp each of the terrine -- we had opened it for us but guess what it looks and smells like cat food -- they each licked the bowl, then licked the floor around the bowl. They like it. It might be the only rabbit they ever eat.

I see that even with rabbit terrine available, Laverne has that yen for junk food!

Ewww! You and SH eat cat food???? Surely you can afford people food...

Our cats could easily open kitchen cabinet doors, and keep them open. They also learned how to open real doors that had lever handles. I had to change all the handles to be vertical so they couldn't escape...

I used to demand gratitude from the tomcat when I gave him a bite of beef or turkey - "You could never hope for this in the course of nature!" Never got a word of thanks, though.

I get queasy when I see pictures of dead animals. Maybe you can have a dead animal alert in future posts or just refrain from posting pictures of them. Thanks.

Too funny. Love those kitties, and they're beautiful, BTW.
