We had Schupfnudeln for dinner yesterday (those small, longish potato dumplings) and Henry was really really interested. I finally gave in and gave him a morsel to show him that it was potatoes and hence not his normal prey.
Henry sniffed at it, told me “miaow”, ate it and begged for more.
I am thinking “what the heck” and give him a whole one (they are about the size of a finger) and Henry gives me this look – like: “Who do you think I am, woman?! I am THE CAT. ” And off he stalks.
Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me – always shame on me. I’m a sucker.
