Coco & Vivienne went into the garage from the house. They'll follow the cat in there & feed him. The other day, they were taking a little too long. I opened the door & saw Coco kneeling down with her face on the floor .... eating CAT FOOD!!! (I wish I had had my camera with me and almost staged it again so I could get a picture, but figured that would only encourage it more.)
|Coco, so sweet & innocent.|
me: "COCO!" I said, "DON'T EAT CAT FOOD!"
Coco: "Mommy, I cat. Meow Meow."
me (trying desperately not to laugh let alone crack a smile) "Coco, I don't want you eating the cat's food."
Coco pleading: "But Mommy! I HUNGRY!"
me (really trying not to laugh) "Coco, you don't eat the cats food."
Vivienne now replies in her "motherly tone", "But mom, she really likes it."
OK .... full disclosure here. I was reminded by a very good childhood friend that at around age 7, We did in fact try dog food. I guess Coco comes by it honestly.
