I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but this time of year, I always treat myself to a Cadbury egg. I bought one a few days ago and threw it in a kitchen drawer to enjoy later. Yesterday afternoon, I decided to take it out for my midafternoon snack, but I was doomed to disappointment. When I opened the drawer, I saw that my candy egg was not only unwrapped but also half-eaten. And the part that was not eaten had teeth marks on it. Some times, I'm willing to share my snacks with critters, if, for instance, they've taken only a nibble of my food. This time, though, I left the half-eaten egg and closed the drawer. I thought briefly about throwing the remainder in the trash, but that seemed spiteful. The critter had claimed its prize and deserved to keep it. Now I need to have a firm discussion with my cats.


  1. Oh snap! Something wants to nom anything EXCEPT chocolate around my house, I say if you can get to it, you can have it. But keep your paws OFF my chocolate!

    Please note: This does not include the ants I have been battling with lately.

  2. Wait, the cats ate the egg? Or someone else?

    Signed, I ate five eggs in 24 hours

  3. I depend on my cats to keep the critter population in check...
