I Has Soup

Last night, I made split pea soup and cornbread for dinner. My daughter and I ate sitting on the floor at the coffee table (so uncivilized, I know ) Anyway, I was looking at D as she told me something that happened at school. After her story, I looked down again to finish eating and Dasher had his entire face in my bowl of soup! He was going to town too - lapping as fast as his poor little tongure would go. It was hilarious. I took the bowl from him, and went to the kitchen to dump the rest of it into the trash. Dasher followed me into the kitchen, stood on his back legs and watched me dump the soup into the trash, then looked at me like "Umm, I was gonna eat that!"

He was very careful to lap around the carrots. Had no probs with the ham tho!

He then took a long drink of water, gave himself a very thorough bath, and went to sleep for the night

Re: I Has Soup

Your story made me smile and remeber a similar one of my own!

Whene we (husband and I) lived in California, we ate dinner in the living room and watched rented movies many evening. I had a bed-tray(?) that I would set over my lap and I'd sit on the floor while the husband would sit on the couch with his plate in his lap. I always had a semi-circle of cats sitting around me on the floor, but they had always been very respectful. If I saw a paw or nose reaching for my tray, I'd just say a low "uhn-uh" and they'd stop. Mousie would sit right next to me and just *smiiiiile* up at me and purr.

So. Very engrossing part of the movie and I was watching the action scene intently, when it was over I looked down to continue my meal and wondered where my porkchop was. I thought to myself: I didn't eat all of it, had I? I took a bite of a side and thought about my porkchop and realized that even if I *had* eaten all of my porkchop, the BONE would have still been on my plate! Then I realized no cats were sitting around me. I got up and checked in the kitchen, my little Mousie had *watched* me be distracted and slowly put her paw onto my plate and hooked my 'chop, running off with it and all the other kitties had followed her and her 'prize' to the kitchen!
Crazy kitties!
Now when am not at the table, I keep an arm curled around my plate so I can FEEL any cat reaching for my dinner if I am distracted by the TV!

Dasher certainly lives up to his name - he's a quick one!

Re: I Has Soup

Heidi -Thanks for sharing. That is sooooo funny! I'm glad to see we're not the only ones who eat in the LR!!

Marie - Yes, Dasher still manages to be quick, even though he is a whopping 19 lbs now. The first few months we had him, he would gallop thru the house at top speed right around 11 every night. He was an early Christmas present for my daughter (no worries - we have super quiet Christmases), which is what put us on the Christmas theme.

If I were Dasher, I would have eaten the soup too! It's a shame you caught him before he finished. I love pea soup with ham. Mmmmm....I put lentils in mine.

Re: I Has Soup

Hmm, I've never had it with lentils. Good idea!

Re: I Has Soup

Wait, I though split pea soup with carrots and ham, served with cornbread, was a Southern specialty.
You mean it's not?

Those kitties have good taste, though

Re: I Has Soup

Maybe the cornbread part is Southern, John, but it's my Mom's favorite soup.

Me? not so much

Re: I Has Soup

Interesting. Stormy seems to love split pea soup, too. I mean, she nearly always seems to want to sample my dinner. But she tries a lot harder for split pea than most other soups.

Re: I Has Soup

A Southern specialty? Hmmm, I live in the Midwest and its the norm around here - standard use for hambones. And my family has always served cornbread with beans (except dals). I can't imagine eating pea soup with anything else!
