Laverne thinks if she can just knock the cat food container off the counter, it will pop open and hey! an early Christmas.
She thinks this because she has done it before. When we were on vacation. And the cute neighbor kid whom we hired to feed the cats in our absence left the container on the counter. Despite my specific written and spoken instructions to the contrary. Which meant that when we returned, there was food all over the floor and two very happy, sluggish, fat cats.
