I am happy to report that I've solved the lidded cup debacle, and my cat spit is slowly beginning to work its healing powers on Mom.
At first I was perplexed, how could I make it work. How do you help someone when they are clearly trying to stop you. Some of my friends suggested I just apply directly, and liberally, by licking her. To tell the truth I'm not much into that sort of thing.
I noticed that she was freely enjoying her cran-apple juice out in the open. Naturally I don't care for that juice, but I found that I could quickly lick the edge of the glass, and occasionally even lick the top of the ice cubes before she noticed.
The real power-move came to me early this morning. In her sleepy state, she did nothing but grumble when I pushed the cup to the floor. I was hoping to break it, but it was unbroken. However, in trying to get it open, I realized it was a real push over, and over. A few hardy nudges and it was tucked under the bed with the dust bunnies.
When Mom finally got up, I'd perfected my "What cup?" look. I have to work double time, but I am up to the task. We miss you all!
We salute your ingenuity!
Get well soon, Fin-Mommy!

I can't tell you how proud I am of you, Fin. Pushing the cup under the bed, then putting on the "innocent" face was pure genius!ReplyDelete
You're so smart Fin! We have this saying in mummy's country (Japan) that when you meet a wise person you should steep even the dirt under their nails to try and get a bit of that wiseness to rub off. I guess it doesn't translate that well... but we think you're that wise Fin!ReplyDelete
We hope your mum feels better very soon.
Purrs, Keiko Kenji & Pricilla
