Sky, the Mighty Turkey Hunter

While everyone else with opposable thumbs around here was so preoccupied this week, I want to thank my HumanGyrrl for helping me write about my Turkey Hunting adventure. (We're hoping she'll "help" more often) Here goes:
Well, the other day, I had one of those opportunities that only come around once in a long while, and it was a really yummy one, too.

One of my humans made a turkey sandwich and then just left it next to her computer when she went outside to talk to the neighbors! I think any reasonable feline would regard that as an invitation to help yourself, wouldn't you?

So I began to investigate the sandwich - of course, I wasn't really that interested in the cheese, tomato, lettuce, or bread, but I did give them all a lick just to be polite, and then left them on the floor in case another family member would care for a bite. See how generous I can be?

Anyway, then I got to the really good stuff - the TURKEY! Boy, did that smell good! I was just settling down to a gourmet meal when the Woofie came around. Even though I had generously spread the rest of the sandwich ingredients around buffet-style so that she could pick something, she seemed much more interested in MY turkey! The nerve of some creatures!

Well, I gave her a good growl to tell her what I thought of that, and took a big bite. And just then, the door opened and in came my HumanGyrrl. Can't a respectable feline get a moment of peace to enjoy a hard-won meal?

The next thing I knew, I was turkeyless once more, and she didn't even eat it - just threw it in the trash! Honestly, the waste of that good food just makes my hair stand on end!

(Well, either that, or I need a tongue bath to get the mayonnaise out of my fur.)

What good fortune to find a turkey sandwich just lying around. But, you must speak up and tell them next time, leave off all the other junk and maybe just leave you a pile of turkey!

Heehee, Sky - at least you got a little bit of turkey. I'm not fond of mayonnaise, though. Yuck! Hope you got enough turkey to wash it down.
