This week E got his first chore: feed kitty. Every morning before he drinks his own bottle, kitty eats first. E goes to the cabinet and eagerly awaits for me to open the food bin. (Just a matter of time before he figures out how on his own.) I help him carry the scoop of kibbles over to kitty's bowl as he excitedly waddles over. He gingerly attempts to pour the food into the bowl...but as you can see by the pictures, it doesn't always make it in.
Our cat is insulted that he is being served by Master E and that he has to lick his food up off the floor as a result. Not to mention E likes to scoop the food back OUT of the dish after he's just poured it in. It takes a lot of urging and insisting to get the scoop back into the cat food bin for safe-keeping. There are often angry squeals and fist-shaking when I explain the scoop is special and just for kitty.
The whole sight is hilarious and adorable. And I'm happy E is embracing his first chore with a smile.
