In my defense...

Look, before the Man has a chance to spread lies about me, I want to get my side of the whole issue out. Because it totally wasn't what it looked like.

Ok, so last night before he went to bed, the Man had a snack. And that snack was a chicken leg. He ate it at the table, and then got up to get a drink.

He left the bone on his plate on the table.

Well, now. I saw the bone there and I jumped up on the chair, but I was not going to take the bone and nom the little bits and pieces of meat off of it.

I wasn't!

I was guarding it for him. I mean, it was just sitting there all exposed, and there's another kitty in the house, one who is far less scrupulous than I am. I was just making sure that Buddah didn't take the leg bone and try to chew on it, because there's that little pokey bone on it that he would have choked on.

Clearly, I was being honorable here.

But no, the Man saw me and was all Get down from there, Max. You can't have that, Max.

I knew that. I WAS WATCHING IT FOR HIM.

Sheesh.

Some people.

I hate it when they think I'm going to do something when I'm being good. They should say, "What a wonderful cat you are. Here have this wonderful treat because you are such a good cat." But they never do.

In our house the chicken legs go to the cats! They are the quickest to, well, shuck, and the quickest to dice into kitty bites. If you were our guest, Max, the chicken leg would have been ALL yours! Casey, Buffee Moon, Cody and Angel Mae.

Not us! We'd had that bone and been down the hall like the hounds of h*ll were on our heels! You're a good kitteh, Max.

Oh we TOTALLY believe you! Absolutly! I'm sure if he'd been gone even for more minutes, you still wouldn't have touched it.... right?

Well, Max, you are a bigger cat than any of us, then - we ALL would have grabbed that leg and ran!

Yeah, we kinda have the 5 second rule here - if a People leaves it for 5 seconds, it's fair game.

Max,

We totally believe you! An honorable and noble cat such as yourself, would never snatch and grab.

I feel for you Max. I would just guard it. Ducky would try to steal it. Matter of fact, he got the skinny part of a chick-hen wing a few weeks ago off of mum's plate. She quick got it back.

Derby.

We know you were guarding it for him, cuz otherwise you would have taken it away quick!

I'm just glad you was only watchin it for him. One time a long time ago kitteh got a chicken leg bone & hers chomped it and it got wedged in her mouth leaving her mouth open. She jumped up on the bed and was trying to meow (which sounds pretty funny when you can't make your mouth move, and hers was all drooly and just a mess. We gots the bone out okay but we learned never to leave them things even in the trash for kitteh's to midnight snack on!

We believe you! We do the same thing all the time! We mean, who knows what might happen. Someone else could nom it, it could fly away, it could get losted. You're a good Max. Purrs..

△ Ooopsie. Some spammers will try anything.

Anyway, I KNOW you were just guarding that chicken for the Man. That's what cats do, doesn't he know that?

Humans...they just don't understand...

Gees, try to do a good deed!!

Is that what was in his sweatshirt too? That man has to learn to be more careful with his foods. Taunting the Kitty should be a punishable offense.

Once - a furry long time ago as it happened to hissy old Licorice BEFORE me cames to lives at my house, he knocked the Chicken leg bone onto the floor and the (at that time) woofy eated it and it gots stuck and she had to have a operation that costed a zillion dollars (that the pawrents is still paying back) so CHICKEN bones goes imeediently into the cat proof garbage can.

Ok sweet Max. I believe you were guarding the chicken and you are a good boy for that. I think though that the Man was also guarding you with what he said. See when a human loves a Kitty so much like he loves you...the human will sound like they are scolding you but what they are really doing is making sure that you stay safe. I say things to my mottoes like that but it is cause I am making sure that they know it will hurt them. You were a good boy with good motives but he is a good dad with loads of love! Ok?

Kitties not mottoes. Grrrrr
