Our boy-in-an-orange-suit kitter Felix taught himself how to eat with his hands (sans silverware) when he was a wee lad. I caught him in the act again this morning, that little paw poised mid-air…ready for the next swipe into the bowl. The look on his face…”What!?”
I often tease him “Don’t you know that every proper feline doesn’t eat with his hands?” Secretly I admire his curiosity and verve and frequently encourage him to break as many rules as he can.
He makes a mess with all the dropped food and I love every minute of it.
His brother is equally as quick witted. Although he doesn’t eat with his hands he taught himself how to fetch when just a kitten. As soon as I can figure out how to throw his toy and take a photo of it, he’ll be in the next post.
