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.

  1. That should be called a cheat-a-treat!

  2. Well that is just not fair. Treats should be treats, and not dry kibble. Good luck to you to get that changed around.

  3. Well, late night TV or not ... ol' dry kibble sure isn't sardines.

  4. You can give the Peep the sauerkraut covered Brussel sprouts and keep the liver and sardines for yourself. ;)

  5. Oops, you nearly landed yourself in trouble there. I can see you being banned from the TV if you're not careful! On the other hand though, I can see your point about being fobbed off with cheap kibble.

  6. That late night TV will get you for sure. Now as to these treats, I have that situation all the time. But I get a mix half and half so the taste of treats rubs off onto the kibble and vice versa. Sort of works out half strength treats and 50% better kibble! MOL

  8. I can understand your pain, Seville, but you do need to lay off the late night Tele!
    Perhaps you should look into if the kibble was substituted by the Weasels?

  9. Oh, Seville, we feel your pain. Grammy does that all the time with us. It isn't cheep kibble but it's kibble, for sure. And she does that all the time... ALL THE TIME. …. and now she's tried a new trick. check out her nefarious ways when we post our new blog later today.

  11. Hee! Hee! Mom says she used to TRY to pass of kibble as treats a zillion cats ago...then a certain cat named Tiki would turn his nose up and then go and pee in Mom's SHOES! Yep! He really did. He would turn his nose up at the fakery, saunter over to her shoes, and then pee in her shoes and stare at her while he was doing it. Mom says it only took about 4 times before she was trained!
    And I, Marvelous, have reaped the benefits of Tiki's hard work!
