tit-for-tat

Who would have thought canned tuna is some delicacy. Every night, when I go out to the garage with the cat’s dinner, Dexter growls and Comet yelps their displeasure at the cat being fed. For a time the complaining lead to us adding a spoonful of tuna to the dogs’ dry dogfood. A little while later we found some petfood sausage we named “doglog” a refrigerated, ground chicken and vegetable sausage we slice and mix into their dry food. But they still complain about the cat. Is it reasonable that the dogs begrudge the cat her use of our garage at night?

At every other opportunity, while the cat is not around, Dexter cannot pass through the garage without a quick sniff and lick of the cat’s dish. He thinks he’s pretty slick and hopes to eat more of “her” food as opportunity permits. However, the cat has her own revenge. One night this week, I fed her some dry dog chow bits and some “dog log” in her dish. She ate it with gusto. I’ve fed her the same for a couple nights. And now Dexter is confused. When he last sniffed the cat dish he tasted “his” dog food in her dish. He looks at me like I am giving away his treats.
