The Dangers of Cheese

Hi, Lizzie here today.  I want to tell you about a darker side of myself.  Normally I’m very well behaved (for a cat, anyway), but there’s one thing that will turn me into a drooling, slavering monster–cheese.

It starts out like this: mama gets out a few pieces of string cheese or cheese curds (we *are* in Wisconsin, after all)and I pick up the scent.  My nose starts twitching, my whiskers go forward, and my brain locks down.  I’m on a mission.

My target

I forget who I am, where I am, all I want is CHEESE!

"Lizzie, no!" "Cheese!"

I don’t heed mama’s warnings.  I’m a swiping, snarling animal (well, I AM an animal, but you know what I mean!).

"LIZZIE! GET DOWN!" "CHEESE!"

And do you think I score any?  Do you think I am rewarded?  That would be a big fat NO!  I am unceremoniously tossed off of her lap on to the floor, to share my troubles with my brother.

"Did you get any?" "I don't want to talk about it."

It’s hard being a cat!  Have a good weekend, and I hope you have better luck than I do!
