Dining With Kitties

One thing that kind of drives Blog Mom crazy is that the kitties' dishes have to live on the kitchen table most of the time. That's because if they put them on anything lower the dog eats the cat food. Oh, wait a minute! The dog would be me, Lola. All right. I guess I do that. Why is it that cat food tastes so much better than dog food? I even like it better than most human food, except cheese, of course. I even like the dry cat food. Won't touch the dry dog food. Anyway, my humans insist that unlike the goose vs gander situation, what's good for the kitty is not good for the doggy. Too much protein or something. So it goes up on the table. But I digress. Blog Mom thought of putting the dishes on trays or something so they wouldn't be right on the table and could more easily be whisked away. She had a sort of basket tray thingy handy when she thought of it so she used that.  A little later she found that Happy seemed to approve. But not in the way she had in mind.

She'd forgotten that Happy loves baskets and his favorite baskets are ones that are too small for him. So now the dishes still live on the kitchen table and Happy's been spending his days like this:

But the basket has turned out to be useful for one kitty's dining comfort:

Score this one Happy 1, Blog Mom 0.


  1. Does cat food really taste better??? I have to take your woof for it, Lola... and Blog Mom is right, we sharpei must control our protein intake to avoid amyloidosis complications. Looks like Happy really knows how to dine in comfort, smart feline.

    Licks, hero

  2. Kitty food?? Hmmm....
    Happy is happier now with a special place!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Cat Food??? What's next?? Squirrel Food??? Not for me, thanks. I DO like how Happy managed to ... TURN THE TABLES.. on your mom. That is really smart for a cat. hehehe

  4. That's what I keep hearing.. cat food is yummier than dog food.. Maybe we just like anything that is not ours..

  5. Lola - we have the same issues in our house. The cats eat on the counters and I am stuck on the floor. This all started last year when the vet suggested maybe I could stand to lose a little weight (who me?). I have been put on a cat food free diet and now it is all I think about! It is the forbidden fruit just out of my reach!!! So, unfair!

    Your pal, Pip

  6. Tee hee! I have heard that it's delicious! I can't wait to see round two of this battle!


  7. I don't know about cat food vs dog food. But sure, Happy did it right!

  8. Hi Lola,
    We have a Happy cat too!! Love your Happy cat's picture!! Our Happy just show up one day and said I want to live with you. That was 12 years 7 months ago. The vet thinks she is 17 to 19 years old. She had had several batches of kittens when she came. But no she was not pregnant, thank God!! I have pictures of her on my blog. Read back a few posts and you will see her.
    XXOO, Fern

  9. Kittehs are most strange this way. My mom hate trying to wrap a pressie cuz no matter where she is, Cap'n Ripley will right away "Claim it for Catdom!" or something ker-azy like that. Oh, and Brudder Ranger especially has a bit of a cat food - ahem - issue. So my mom says to tell your mom that she knows where she's coming from.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  10. miss lola,
    kitties are just way mysterious like. i'm glad happy is happy with his dining basket, though. heehee.
    the booker man

  11. Seems like that kitteh has a bit of an obsession with baskets. Might need some of that cognitive therapies.

    Oh yeah, I LOVE kitteh foodables too. Nom, nom.


  12. Lola, that is sooo funny! I like cat food too....but not more than people food.

  13. The cat always gets her way.
