05:02 pm - Great Moments in Feline Guile
The cat tried to mooch bottled water off of me. I cracked one open and he just came right up to me and sat down and looked up at me with those wheedling eyes, you know, giving me that Gee-Mister-this-sure-is-a-swell-family-you-got-here-I-wonder-which-of-us-orphans-is-gonna-live-with-you-prob'ly-not-me-huh look.

The sad thing isn't that he is so obsessed with whatever he sees people eating that he can't help but mooch. The sad thing is that he got some. I poured a bit in his water dish (which had just been changed, too) to show him exactly what the hell it was I had and why he wasn't going to have any of it.

I bin schooled.

I'm trained

If my cat sees me anywhere near the refrigerator, I have to fill his bowl with cold and filtered water. (Or he will follow me and bite my ankles.) Tap water is for the dumb dog.

Yoda does that for bottled water, but that's because he wants the lid. He has a collection. He keeps it under the couch.

We've never fed our cats anything but cat food (no people food). So they don't mooch anything but petting ... but they mooch that ALL THE TIME. I think there's a basic mooch quota common to all cats or something.
