On a Mission
The above mugshot: Miss Skitters
Her lifelong mission: find food and devour. Onions? Garlic? Carrots? Pizza? She never encountered a food she didn’t eat.
Ever hear of a cat that pilfered food from the garbage can and hid it underneath a bed?
How about a cat that closed a closet door behind her to secretly inhale kitty kibbles from the bag inside?
Keeping with the Chicken Soup for the Soul theme for a bit, I invite you to read, “On a Mission.” The story details Miss Skitter’s food obsession. It is found in CSS’s “I Can’t Believe my Cat Did That!”
Since a link to the story is unavailable, here’s the opening paragraph…
My kitten climbed my leg like a lemur. “Miss Skitters! Get down!” I grimaced as I felt the razor-like claws. I set the bag of French fries on the table and pulled her off me. Miss Skitters’ eyes locked onto the bag like a heat-seeking missile to its target. She scrambled. I snatched the bag. Miss Skitters leaped. I couldn’t believe I was battling an adorable, gray-and-white kitten.
