    One of my kitties loves yogurt. But he'll ignore it if I just try to put a dish of it down for him.

    I have to feed it to him with a spoon.




    Not that I mind ..... :tongue:

    I could pretend I took this! Looks a lot like he did when we started this tradition, 11 years ago.

    But no, we've never captured it on film.



    Here's a recent picture of my fellow, sans yogurt. Elmo won the battle.

    Funny, I came here to start a thread about my cat, the bed hog.

    I want to go lie down and read under the covers, with my Kindle. Oh, but I can't. Because there's a pissy little old (15) cat on my bed, sleeping. What happens after I wake her is positively tragic; so I let her sleep.

    Her mom (my housemate) finds it hilarious that Folly is the boss of me. >.>

    My ceased-to-be cat Eric the Cat used to just lick it out of the container when we were done with it. He was quite fun with goldfish crackers . . . we'd throw them across the room and he'd go fetch them, eat them and look at us to 'do it again'! lol

    I have a cat, Pinky (he's actually orange), who loves pistachios. The only time I buy pistachio nuts is the few weeks before Christmas. So an entire year will have gone by and I buy pistachios. Pinky will be clear on the other side of the house somewhere, sound asleep, but without fail he hears me crack that first pistachio of the season and comes running. It is absolutely amazing. I've tried to be really quiet, but he recognizes that distinctive sound, no matter how quiet I try to be. : )

    Pinky is kind of fat, but life is too short not to have something you love that much once in a while. It's only once a year, and I give him limited amounts of them. But damn, I like them too! I guess I could go out in the car and eat them. : )

    Same with our three cats! Must eat yogurt and tapioca pudding with a spoon! One of our beloved cats whom we lost years back loved speghetti sauce. Would literally cry if you rinsed your speghetti plate without allowing him to help himself to the leftovers. He also held his head under a running facet, and would only drink by dipping his paw in water and licking the paw. :)
