Next, the can opener...

So, when we open a can of cat food, we put it in a widemouthed glass canning jar because it takes us 4 days to use it up. We just use a standard canning lid with a ring to seal it.

Tuesday night, my husband fed Assumpta before we left for co-op. We were in a hurry, and apparently, he put the lid on the jar, but forgot to put the ring on and forgot to put the jar back in the refrigerator.

Well, Assumpta fans know what happened...we got home a couple of hours later to find the lid on the kitchen floor and extensive paw and tongue marks through the food. The cat was sitting on the counter, happily washing her paws and face with a very satisfied expression. She was VERY pleased with remorse at all. In fact, she was really flaunting her chop licking and washing-up, just to make sure that we knew she'd had a nice snack.

Later, when she came to sit on my lap, I spent fifteen minutes picking dried cat food out of the tabby stripes on top of her head.

My cat...she's a whacko and a food thief, but she's just so gosh-darned cute that I can't stay mad at her.

And very clever. Those are the hardest to live with. A couple days ago I posted in a thread about wastebaskets that I used one with a spring-loaded latching lid. Well, naturally, yesterday Tommy figured out how to trip the latch and open the lid. So I had to go and and buy another one.

Assumpta has never quite made the connection. She sometimes steps on the lever (usually whilst climbing onto the counter, mind you!) and the lid flips open, but she hasn't quite figured out that she could open it at will. Every time it happens, she just jumps about a foot in the air and glares at the offending trash can...she thinks it's got something to do with vegetable peelings.

hahaha Assumpta just cracks me up! (of course it has a lot to do with your running commentary on what she must be thinking )
