Feline Friday: Cornbread Muffins for Breakfast

There are days when I wonder what I'll post for Feline Friday. As hard as it is to believe, things are not always rivetingly exciting around here. Today was one of those days. Thank goodness, Lily provided me with some fresh material.

Last night, we went out to dinner at the Cracker Barrel. Because I can't bear for bread or rolls to go to waste, I brought home the entire plate of leftover biscuits, cornbread, butter, and jelly, even though we really don't care for the cornbread muffins. I put the biscuits in a bag for later and planned to give the cornbread to the birds.

But this morning when I ventured downstairs, I found Lily up on the counter. It seemed she had a hankering for a cornbread muffin. Since the camera was conveniently sitting on the counter, I decided (as I often do with Lily) to just let things play out and see if I could catch the action.

Lily licked the entire plastic container, paying special attention to the embossed logo on top. Then she began gently push-pushing it to the edge of the counter. In a matter of seconds, the container fell to the floor. Cornbread rained down like manna from heaven. It was a cornbread bonanza.

I watched as Lily went after a muffin with the fervor of a starving wild animal. If I hadn't stopped her after a couple of bites, I know that she would have eaten every one of the cornbread muffins.

I scooped up the mess and took the muffin pieces outside for the birds.

When I came back inside, Lily was well on her way to opening a blackberry jelly packet.

Just another Feline Friday.

Aren't they clever? My baby, Sam, has a thing for bread and would probably love some cornbread muffins. By the way, I always look forward to Fridays on your blog!

How cute is your cat!!! Our Harley surprised us the other day with a baby bunny...it made me so sad. Normally I am so proud when she catches mice. I think she was confused by my less than enthusiastic reaction.
