I have 2 cats that share my home, one is my son's, a male named Punkin' and a female family cat named Sweetie.
Sweetie can be anything but sweet. She's a little trouble maker.
I keep the kitchen garbage in a bin under the sink, in a cupboard.
She LOVES to get into it, especially since I have two kids that work at KFC and frequently bring home chicken leftovers.
She has figured out how to open the cupboard and climb inside claiming her chicken bone prize. I have had to resort to putting a chair in front of the
cupboard door to keep her out.
She never gets away with keeping it, as i don't want her to choke, so she'll have it taken from her by me or one of the kids, put back in the
garbage..and then I give her a "Time out" in her cat carrier. (Yes..I discipline my kitties).
She's cute, but not very bright.
Whenever she gets in trouble, Punkin will come to see what the commotion is about, and will frequently lay beside or on top of the carrier while she
serves her punishment. You gotta admire his dedication.
Well, here's what happened yesterday.
Again, Sweetie took a chicken bone from the garbage, but this time Punkin' was in the room. I heard the noise and went to the kitchen to see him
taking the bone from her mouth. I have never seen him do that and I thought "Oh , great. now he's going to do it".
But he took the bone, went over to the cupboard, crawled inside and DROPPED IT BACK INTO THE GARBAGE!
I don't know who had the bigger look of shock on their face..me or Sweetie.
I swear my jaw was on the floor..then I yelled for my son "Oh my god you won't believe what your cat just did!"
We were laughing hysterically, while Sweetie slunk off to a corner somewhere.
It was as if he was telling her to smarten up and quit being stupid so that she wouldn't get punished anymore.
Geez, I wish I had a video camera. That would have been priceless.
