This is amusing (for me)...

We have three cats, Tino, Twitch and Skittles. This story highlights the antics of Tino.

Now Tino is really a very odd cat. She's beautiful, with long plush fur and startling eyes. She's not very friendly, however. For some reason she stays away from the other cats and from us! She dislikes being touched, approached, or even spoken to. She often isn't pushy enough and doesn't get to the food we set out for the cats, and when we provide some especially for her, she eats small bits and then runs away.

Someone last night had left a closed bag of small dinner rolls (bread) on the kitchen table. I was just coming to make myself a roll for lunch. To my amazement there was a roll lying on the table with bits missing. At first I thought "Nick, you grubby little thing." (Nick is my 14 in June year old brother) Then, not paying much attention, I still went to touch the bag of rolls... my hand shot back from that bag faster than you can say "gah!" my fingers were covered in some liquid. Looking at the bag that now obviously had a gaping hole, I could only surmise it was saliva.

I look down underneath the table and see Tino eating a chunk of bread quite happily, until she catches me looking and disappears from view.

I had no idea cats could or would want to eat bread. The only thing that goes through my mind is "she thinks she's people!"
