Bad Table Manners Run in My Extended Family


You know I have shared some of The Kid Sage’s bad table manners, right? Oh, you say you missed that. Here, let me help you…just click here for the latest.

I have now learned that these same bad table manners apparently run in my extended family as well.

Can you believe what Cuzin Leo did?

Can you believe what Cuzin Leo did?

Mom L and Dad P were having sandwiches, for humans, with Dad Dave a couple of weeks ago. They barely had those sandwiches unwrapped, their crunchy chips and Cheetos laid out and then *thump*!!!  An orange lump of poofy floofy fur landed in the middle of their meals.

Oh Hi guys!! What's for lunch??

Oh Hi guys!! What’s for lunch??

He wandered around the middle of the table calmly checking out everyone’s food.

Hey Auntie Linda, those a some nice looking Cheetos

Hey Auntie Linda, those a some nice looking Cheetos

After a stroll over to his Dad Dave’s plate, Cuzin Leo decided there wasn’t much there that he was interested in.

Hmmm...guess there isn't any stinky goodness here for me

Hmmm…guess there isn’t any stinky goodness here for me

Satisfied, he calmly left, but with less noise that he did when he arrived. For the life of me I cannot figure out where Cuzin Leo learned his table manners. He certainly NEVER got that from me when he was living under my castle ceiling!

    That is funny 🙂 Our orange cat, Prancie says it is OK to eat Cheetos if they are the same color as you 🙂

  6. Oh we’ve do this all the time. Of course, it doesn’t mean our peeps like it.

  7. Hi! You are so pretty, Savannah!

    Cuzin Leo is Pierrot’s hero. To heck with table manners is his motto too. That’s too funny the way Leo hopped up there, checked everything out, wasn’t impressed and left again.

  10. I think I must be odd! I have never jumped up on the table, and I don’t like people food.

    Zorro could be a relative of Cuzin Leo and Sage MOL ! Purrs

  12. Emma likes one piece of Cheetos, or popcorn, or a small piece of Doritos. After that, she’s good.

    Emma and Buster

  13. If Nylablue were alive she would be mortified to see Cousin Leo on the table! LOL. Savannah when I read the title of the blog I just KNEW it had to be Leo… he looks wonderful… I am so glad Dave adopted him…
    Happy endings are the BEST!
    Love to all of you there, Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry ❤ ❤

    Lily & Edward

  15. None of my kitties have table manners! Sheesh! LOL!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  16. maybe Leo is a relative of Garfield? the fur looks a little similiar and the table manners too :o)

  17. Mine do it by stealth,hiding under the tabl and fishing for snacks with a pw suddenly appearing over the edge.

  18. Seriously, if I could jump on the table, I’d do it every day of my life. I can barely see what’s up there…. Bummer. Lucky kitties!

    Love and licks,

  19. What, jumping on the table and examining the human’s food is wrong? Well, knock me over with a feather!

  20. Oh tell me about it Savannah!! Sienna, Silver, Phoebe ALL up to Mischief like that!

  21. Well, my kitties don’t. Mine have never learned that human food is edible (former feral cat one and former farm cat, two). Thats why they do not even beg, let alone come up on the table.

    That reminds me of my first family Thanksgiving Dinner I prepared. I set up the ping pong tables and then set them with silverware, full crystal wine and water glasses, and beautiful porcelain plates–salad, bread, and dinner plates–the whole deal. And lit candles. I looked up before I called my guests in to eat and there was Tiger Kitty, ( a beautiful large long-haired grey tabby cat), prancing down the dinner plates, placing a foot in each one. I wonder what he was thinking? I know what I was thinking!

    No human was thoughtful enough to buy a tuna sub?

  24. At my house, this would be Tess. Hehehehee…


Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
