Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

The Kid Sage Has a Sweet Tooth


What can I say? It’s true. TKS must have taken on some of Dad P’s genes or somethin’ because she has developed his love for all things shaped and tasting like vanilla ice cream. Yup, this is the real deal.

Every night Dad P always has a little small teensy bowl of vanilla ice cream. Sometimes with some fruit or whatnot on it. TKS knows the moment he has prepared their his bowl ‘cuz she follows him out of the kitchen just waiting for him to get comfy in their his recliner and get settled for their nightly routine.

But one night Dad P forgot to turn off his computer so he left the ice cream on a table by his recliner for a moment. Now I want you to know this was a really, really tough situation for TKS.

Look at that poor lonely ice cream. No one to care for it.

I was watching this whole thought process drift through TKS’ mind. So was Mom L. We were sitting on our couch on the other side of that little table. This was one of TKS’ finest moments.

hmmm…Dad P wouldn’t want it to melt. And who knows how long he might be gone.

This is where TKS really came through. Or maybe, just maybe, this is where Mom L’s stare “got” through to TKS??

What? Why no! I certainly was not thinking of taking a few licks before Dad P gets back. How could you ever think such a thing of me?

About that time Dad P returned and all was well. He gets a dab of vanilla ice cream on his finger and allows TKS to lick it off. Then he wipes said finger, and gets another dab for TKS to lick. They do this for about three or four dabs and that’s all TKS wants. Nice to see them sharing their sweet toofies!

Do you have any pre-bedtime routines with your humans? Tell me about them in comments.

  1. Very wise decision. TKS proved how trustworthy she is and got her reward!

    TKS, we are totally impressed! We’re not sure we could hold out if presented with free access to that ice cream. 🙂

  3. Oh wow, she has an iron will. No way could I resist that long!!! Go Sage!!!

  4. WE think that TKS was furry smart to realise that Dad P was actually setting a trap for her – but she didn’t fall for it. Next time, Mom L won’t be keeping such a close eye on her, because she passed the Test this time – and TKS will be able to Go To Town on that ice cream (mol).

    My cat Jake would have eaten all the ice cream. Hahaha. TKS, you were smart to not let there be photographic evidence of you being naughty. 😉

  6. THAT was real willpower! I’m impressed. …or disappointed that TKS was too slow… My bedtime routine is quite different. No ice cream. Mom brushes my teeth!! I mean, the toothpaste is chicken flavored, but ugh. Every. Single. Day. Teeth-brushing.

    Love and licks,

    TKS was very good to resist temptation. I had a horse that loved ice cream. In summer when we were out riding I would often buy 2 ice creams, one for me and one for him.

  8. sage….boomer loved his donuts; a tiny piece of cake donut about once a week and sometimes I get a small amount of vanilla ice cream too; though you are a far better cat than me; I would have consumed that ice cream in record time !! waves to savvy ~~~~~~~~ hugs from dai$y =^..*= ♥♥♥

    TKS is so well behaved. My cats would have cleaned the bowl.

  10. The cats here would not hesitate to have a few licks.

    TKS, you should have gone in for the ice cream. It’s fair game if Dad P left.

  12. Glad TKS got rewarded for good behaviour 🙂

    Would You resist?

  15. chrisscatmeow on said:

    Gosh I agree with summer now if it was cream Spike would be right in there having a lick.

  16. Wow, Sage has SO much discipline and patience to sit there like that! I don’t think Binga would be so patient. Or me! Definitely not Boodie either!

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