At dinner last night I opened a package of sliced salad nuts and she ran over. It's the same kind of package Temptations come in, so I understood her curiosity. I gave her a sniff and she left. Later I was opening a container of shaved Parmesan cheese, just a little tub, but it drew her attention again. I had to laugh, this is not the kind of package any snacks or kitty food comes in.
But I decided to let her have a sniff anyway. I took out one of the shaved pieces and held it up, "Look, it's just stinky cheese, nothing you want," I said. Obviously I was lying... She stole that puppy out of my fingers before I knew what she was up to!
Well that was a fluke! I thought. So I showed her another piece.. Dang if she didn't snatch that one out of my fingers too! Cheese? Seriously? Parmesan cheese? Seriously? Oh she was serious alright!
It occurred to me that their new favorite food is anything with cheese in it. But that's probably not even real cheese... probably some processed whatever. They love it! No turned up noses at all.
Parmesan though? That's a whole different kettle of fish, so to speak. I may have set a dangerous precedence. Next think you know, she'll be after my asiago!
I have better taste than you give me credit for. Seriously.
