Behind The Butter

not so innocent

someone’s sick of his cat food.

I don’t blame him.

    I have one named Serena that gets herself into some serious trouble sometimes!!! I’ll never forget the photos you posted of Dexter escaping.

    Perhaps he was channeling another Dexter and choose chocolate instead of blood spatter to investigate?

    In Dexter’s defense, the poor guy has to watch you bake up “5lb weight gain” aka “holiest of holy” chocolate treats. I would want in on that action, too 🙂

    Aww, he’s probably tired of it because he always sees and smells you baking your tasty treats. I think he wants your to make him some cat treats!

    Could be worse, I came home the other day to find one of my dogs had eaten my glasses!! Yes, my glasses. Still have no idea where one of the lenses is, but the arms were completely chewed and bent in half! He was apparently shopping for a new chew toy on my nightstand.

    It’s a good thing he is so adorable, or I would have made him into a pair of glasses! :o)

    My kitty looks just like Dexter! We found mysterious kitty prints in the pumpkin pie a few years back… a month before that, she escaped with (and either hid or ate) an entire quesadilla… and I got a text from my mom while she was living there saying that kitty looked very guilty with a piece of spaghetti over her head… But we love them!

    Uh-oh. Be careful with cats and chocolate-it can make them sick! Hopefully he didn’t actually ingest any-maybe this is his way of saying “can you please make some nice cat treats next time?”

    my dog does something like this with his food. In the morning, I will feed him a mix of dry and wet food and he separates it himself. He’ll take a bite, spit it on the carpet and just eat the wet food. Then I’m left with kibble all over the floor which he then puts in his mouth and tosses up in the air as a child would throw their popcorn and try to catch it in his mouth. He’s a crazy little thing.

    Oh Dexter is super cute… I’m biased because my Gidget has the same markings on her chest… something mischevious about black cats with white spots…so cute you don’t see them coming 😛
