While preparing dinner this afternoon, my cat, Mittens hopped up on the chair next to me and peeked up onto the counter, wondering what delectable treat I might be preparing.
“It’s just onions, Cutie, I don’t think you like these.”
She hopped down and purred around my ankles.
“Alright, here’s a piece, but I know you aren’t going to be happy about it.”
After I tossed a segment of onion on the floor, Mittens crept over to inspect it, nose stretched to within a few milimeters of the morsel. One tentative sniff and she was gone.
Meanwhile, my parent’s kitten, Puka, had stopped by. Upon seeing Mittens inspecting the eats, she decided to give it a try. Casually walking up to the rejected tidbit, she sat down and gave it a thorough lick.
“Haaack, hack, hack!”
“I told you two you wouldn’t like it!”
I was left to prepare dinner in peace.
