exciting, informative, snarky, and very likely fabricated tales of life as an american expat in london

that’s what i get for trying to be too cute

filed under: photo, zeke the freak

whenever we sit down to eat at the table, zeke will perch himself on another chair and intently sniff the wafting aromas coming from our plates, eyes wide, licking his lips. he sits there for the entire meal, *almost* begging, but not daring to touch the actual table with a paw.

today, i made myself some smoked salmon on a bagel. he was sitting next to me, sniffing, sniffing, sniffing… and i thought i’d take a photo.

apparently the temptation was just a little *too* much, the bagel just a little *too* close…


the reason this picture is so blurry is that before i had a chance to focus, he reached out and nipped the salmon off the bagel, and i found myself screaming, dropping my camera and chasing him as he dashed across the kitchen and dove under the living room chair with his delectable fishy bounty.

cheeky bugger… but i have only myself to blame!

    It may be blurry, but it’s a very cute shot and the story with it is perfect, sorry, did have to let out a chuckle or two on this one!

    Ha ha! Zeke is very clever. I think I would’ve done the same if I was a kitty with salmon so tantalizingly near. lol

    Yup, I’m with the cat on this one.

    You did deserve that, methinks.

    Haha! That’s classic! My little Pushkin is the first cat I know that will eat ANYTHING on the floor. Her specialty is potato chips..he goes nuts with them.
