a rose by any other name...

Okay, so they SAY a rose by any other name still smells as sweet, but...

But what if it's not really a rose?

WHAT if it's really a treat?

And WHAT if said treat turns out to not actually be a treat at all?

What if it is, in fact, nothin' more than some dry kibble your peep is tryin' to PASS OFF as treats, 'cause she's nothin' but a common wh...

Oh my mouses!  Gosh, I almost called the peep a...  Oohhh boy, I've really been watchin' WAY TOO MUCH late night TV.

Okay, so what if said rose is supposedly a treat, but ACTUALLY dry kibble your peep is passing off as treats, 'cause she's nothin' but a stupidy-dupity ol' cheapskate of a peep?

Huh?

What about THAT?

Would said dry kibble then smell as sweet as a rose?

Methinks...

NOT.

MOUSES!

So if any of you kitties out there have experienced the dry kibble treat switcheroo...

WHAT DID YOU DO?

'Cause seriously, inquirin' minds are needin' to know.

MOUSES!

Huh, and now that I'm thinkin' about it, just what-oh-what would Peep #1 do if I were to try to pass off...

Say...

I know!

What would she do if I were to try to pass off sauerkraut and liver on her, tellin' her it was some kinda extra special chocolate candy?

I'm thinkin' she probably wouldn't like that at all.

Or if I were to try to pass off...

Say...

I know!

What would she do if I were to try to pass off brussels spouts and sardines on her, tellin' her it was some kinda extra special, fancy schmancy pastry?

I'm thinkin' she probably wouldn't like that, either.

And what would she do if I were to try to pass off...

Wait a minute.

I like liver.

I like sardines, too.

Actually, now that I'm thinkin' about those things, I'm findin' myself somewhat hungry.  I could sure go for some liver and sardines right about now.  I could go for some liver and sardines, for sure!

I wish I could get the peep to pass off some liver and sardines on me.


But does she do that?  Offer me sardines and liver as a snack?  Does she?

OH NO...

INSTEAD, she just passes off cheap ol' dry kibble, sayin' it's treats, 'cause she's nothin' but a cheapskate of a common wh...

MOUSES!

Seriously, I have GOT to stop watchin' late night TV.
