In our house, we sometimes have a show called “Cooking With Kitties”. Although Brother Henry and I have appeared on the show a time or two, Brother Oliver has made the most appearances. On Cooking With Kitties, the special guest kitty usually gets to sit on a fancy chair next to the cook.
As the cooking commences, the guest kitty gets to inspect each of the ingredients. Here Brother Oliver smells some cheese.
Sometimes the ingredients need a sniff, as well as a more thorough visual inspection. The cook will sometimes use crystalline presentation bowls to present the ingredient to the kitty. The clear bowl ensures that the kitty gets an accurate look at the ingredient’s color.
If the kitty is uncertain about the ingredient after the smell and visual inspection, a taste test may also be required. In a show of trust and respect, the cook offers a bit of the ingredient up on the tip of his or her finger. Returning the trust and respect, the kitty takes great care to taste the ingredient without biting the hand that feeds him.
Now, when Cooking With Kitties comes to an end, the cook has created some amazing, delicious smelling food. I bet you are thinking that the cook then shares that creation with the kitty… but you are wrong. Instead, the cook then makes a different meal for the kitty. It comes out of a can.
So, although The Brothers and I love being on Cooking With Kitties, we all think the show’s ending could use some work. Or maybe we should create a new show that immediately follows it called “Dining With Kitties”. Now, if only we can convince the cooks.
