Tis Good to Be a Princess

Well I am wreaking havoc in my middle years. Mom wrote last week in Felix's diary about our Annual End of Summer Shrimp Boil. Since my human brother was coming, and she misses him so much, Momma decided to make a coconut cake for dessert, cause he likes it. Well, the cake was on the counter, with the plastic snap-on lid not totally snapped on since it said to keep loosely covered. Well, when Momma came in from the screened porch to get dessert, guess who was dreamily licking the frosting off the corner? yeah me - that's right. "arrgh MAIZY!" "huh? what? it was cake!" ok so Momma ate that piece - no harm done. Now the lid is snapped on. During the night, she hears some rattling around. And now who has figured out how to UNSNAP the lid? of course my brilliance knows no bounds, and when I want cake, well I WANT CAKE NOW. ok, "eeek MAIZY!" so she put it in the fridge. Except it doesn't taste as good cold. It got moved & sat on top of the fridge a day or so, then Nana put the last couple o pieces in a glass dish with another snap on lid. ok this should be safe on the counter no? NO! This time, I got busted by gulp...THE DAD. Momma does not know what has gotten into me with this behavior. And I gulp down the stuff like I haven't eaten for weeks either. I was like this when I was a kitten - I had a serious food aggression issue, and I would literally jump on a lap to grab a bite of sandwich & run. But I grew out of it, and was fine until now. If someone gets up from their chair to get a drink or napkin or catsup - you get it, I will be on their seat eating their dinner (if it is what I like) faster than you can say catnip! So Mom has made any sweet stuff on the counter forbidden. sigh NOW what am I gonna do?! And Mom knows it is not good for me (even though it is a bit cute), but still NO NO NO MAIZY NO!) No is NOT part of my vocabulary, as a princess, all must bow before me... & offer their cake.
