OH, The Places She'll Go

Wylla is not allowed to eat Charlene's crunchies, and Wylla does not like this.   She's obsessed with sneaking a bite or two and we have to take many steps to keep her out of Charlene's food.

Charlene eats her meals behind closed doors, or with us near by because Wylla is small and can easily  weasel her way to the dish. 

The other night,  I put Charlene is the guest room so she could have a snack in peace, and when she was done, I placed her bowl up on the top shelf of the closet,  foolishly thinking it would be safe. 

 It wasn't.

Oh, and she can get on top of the fridge, too.

  2. I finally had to store the treats in the microwave, no other place was out of reach.

  3. Our Kasey would eat his food and his sister's Roxie's leftovers..if we let him. Kasey will counter, fridge, table and anywhere else he can reach surf..looking for her food. Her bowl now gets put on a skinny wall shelf he hasn't figured out yet..oh wait..he could go from the table to the water cooler to the..dang! Have to start putting it inside the fridge I think :0 It's been 4 years and he never stops trying!

    They are determined when they really really want something! And Wylla looks so darn cute doing it too :)

  7. Hey, Charlene eats kitten crunchies, why can't Wiley Wylla eat Beanie crunchies? And in our house, The Kitten Safe is the microwave. Good luck!

    1. She can't digest dry food, so she must eat only wet.

  9. One of my two cats is on hypo-allergenic prescription cat food, so I feel your pain!

    That little stinker! Our cat, Thomas, isn't allowed to eat his sister's food either, but manages to sneak some once in a while. He always barfs it right back up, so there's the evidence!

  13. Can't...stop...giggling. Oh my word she looks SO determined.

  14. If Willful Wylla had her way
    The world would be full of treats
    Neither high or low would she have to go
    Just plop right down and eat them

    Keep climbing Wylla!

  17. I have two cats and a yellow lab, all get separate, different prescripton diets, all three get different supplements...everyone eats well, but no one really loves their food and is always trying to get the other guy's food, thinking the grass is greener.

    I am forwever running interference, locking everyone up in separate rooms twice a day for meals! I empathize !

    1. I thought I had is rough. Buddy cat is on prescription food for bladder stones and is the worst chow hound. Tiger is a wicked grazer.

      Buddy is constantly trying to sneak Tiger's food. It's pretty funny. But I do have to really watch what Bud eats.

  18. Hey! Small doesn't mean angelic! I also have a small sneak thief so feel your pain. Feeding in separate rooms, feeding the big one in a Pyrex dish which has a snapping lid, putting the lid on the dish when there's leftovers and then putting a weight on the lid...

    The sneak thief still gets the forbidden food. Sigh.

  19. That's tortitude and it will lead her into a lifetime of temptation and adventure. Bless her hard little head.

  20. Oh, my. That Wylla. I LOL'd, and it was a much-needed one, so thanks!

  21. Could you create a box or crate with one of those cat-flaps that have a solenoid lock? put the solenoid on Charlene's collar, she can go in and out as she pleases, but Ms F'luffy F'lon would be closed out.

    1. They make these ready-made... It's a Meowspace. We have this problem with our two furbeans and it's been a lifesaver. A little pricey, but cats have long lives!

  22. Lil' stinker.. Cats always find a way to get to the forbidden fruit. Found my old Siamese on top of the refrigerator once (still not sure how she got up there), reeeeeaaaaching for a little stuffed reindeer that I put on top of the clock hanging on the wall next to the fridge thinking that it would be out of reach. HA.

  23. I love the 2nd photo! Miss Wylla appears to be saying "Oh, hi Mommy! What? I always sit here. You didn't know? Whatever. I think Daddy is yelling for you. You should go to him...now."

  24. Wiley Wylla! You go, girl!

  25. you almost can't be mad at her! what a cutie!

  26. Love that second pic. Shes all "what?" Poor Bean is gonna end up eating in a cabinet somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL the rascal!!! but oh soooo cute. I hide treats in the old dishwasher!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Gotta love the resourcefulness and determination that got her up there...and how in the heck did she get up there? These pictures are hysterical...the little peak over the edge of the shelf to view her prize....LOL!

  29. How on earth did she get onto the hangers?!

    The more we see of her, the more she reminds me of a girl version of my cat. My grandma regularly refers to him as "a Dickens." He's smarter than me, more determined, and more patience.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh my gosh! That girl is determined! Definitely a tree dweller, no?

  31. I suspect little Miss Wylla, like my Emily, is able to reduce her mass to zero and just float up to where she wants to jump to (she does it the other way going down, increases her mass to that of an elephant). It certainly explains how she could climb so high so easily.

    Seriously, my daughter used to have a cat who could jump to the top of the fridge from the floor. Fortunately, he didn't like jumping very much, or we might have found him hanging from the ceiling fan one day!

  32. hahahahaha
    pic #2: Sprung!

    Go you good thing, go Ms Wylla.

  33. HOW precious. I love it. My cat got on top of my kitchen cabinets- the top ones- once. I came home and couldn't find her ANYWHERE, until I happened to look up in the kitchen.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Mighty Meow! Able to leap to tall refrigerators and bound to high closet shelves in the never-ending search for crunchies to munch! LOL!
    Wylla may be a feather weight kitten but she sure has determination! Bless her fuzzy widdle heart!

  35. Oh dear god Wylla Stout I love you!

  36. computerized fractal encryption codes? Oh wait, they lack opposable thumbs, maybe a padlock like on school lockers will do it.

  37. Dr. Suess would be so proud.

  38. I just read this and had to add my story featuring my cat food loving dog. My little Schipperke will sneak into the cat's room whenever Mama Lucy leaves a little of her wet food for a midnight snack. Hunter seems to know when it is there, and sneaks in and gobbles it up. Just as a test, I gave him some of her food in his eating spot. Guess what? Of course he didn't want to eat it if I gave it to him. It is only tasty if he steals it, preferably with Mama Lucy glaring daggers at him from the top of her window perch. Maybe he is trying to get even for all the times Mama Lucy and Baby Winkers have licked all over the big knuckle bone he gets as a treat. Never a dull moment around here. And we love it that way.
