It's Not Fair!

Meow, well, I just don't think it's fair, that's all!

Late every afternoon I get a Teatime Treat. Mom puts ten Temptation treats out fur me on a plate in the kitchen, on the floor near the refrigerator. I sit in the dining room and watch while she gets them ready, and if she's late, I remind her by moving pointedly to the doorway to the kitchen and sitting there to make sure she sees I am waiting.

Today, because of something she read on Catster, she did something different, though. Instead of just putting my well-deserved treats on the plate, she cut an empty cardboard paper towel roll in half and put the treats inside it, and then put the roll on the plate. I had to extract the treats one by one with my paw before I could eat them. It took me at least twice as long as usual.

Really, mom! I don't care what you read about "making things interesting" for kitties and "challenging kitties mentally." I just want my treats, that's all! And do you really think it's a "challenge" to get treats out of a paper towel roll? I'm not a kitten, you know, and I'm quite accustomed to using my paws. Please give up this ridiculous idea!

*flips tail in annoyance* Meow, if she does it again, maybe I'll show her how good I am at using my paws by taking a swipe or two at her leg. . . .

I agree, it's not fair! Mommy used to make me sit to get a treat just because she liked me to eat them from her hand one at a time. She thought she was teaching me tricks! I taught her a trick though. I wouldn't sit anymore. I knew if I rubbed against her legs enough times she would just give yhem to me. I ,ove Temptation, and I shouldn't have to work for them. Neither should you! You are a princess, after all!
