How My Cat Proved the "I can't believe it's not butter" advertising....



Went to liturgy locally; after breakfast, I whipped up a batch of vegan brownie cookies (double batch of course). I used 1 cup of "I can't believe it's not butter"... well... the name is true apparently, as Cleo *very naughtily* was discovered on the Island (big no-no that she never does) licking the buttered 1 cup bowl! Shame on Cleo!

Upon being found, she leapt off the island and hid, knowing that such naughtiness = spray bottle of water.... I found her and after she has been sprayed with water but I had a hard time not laughing when I saw her licking her lips, *after* being sprayed...! 

Apparently she really thought that "I can't believe it's not butter" WAS indeed butter!!!

This reminds me of the time many years ago when Smokey was discovered on the dining table happily eating birthday cake. 😃

Cleo is adorable! What a sweet story. I found that my Lilly had done the same thing. I had left the butter in an open container and I saw the "ridged" marks left from her licking the cube. Needless to say, I now always use a covered butter dish. Our little cat people are so cute and I couldn't live without her! Have a blessed Thanksgiving dear Elizabeth. Hugs, Pat

If that tricks even a cat, what a great advertisement!! Maybe I will pick some up today :-)

Ha ha! That's why I don't go in for indoor cats. I don't trust 'em! ;)
Elizabeth, I also wanted to respond to what your hubby said about Madeleine L'Engle being kind of "far-out" spiritually. I agree 100%! It seems like the first few books were not too bad, but they got more far out as they went along. I might even label her as a Universalist. But, as I said, my OCD wouldn't let me stop until I had finished what I started! Sheesh! ;) I think the Beth Moore book will be more edifying.

Thanks everyone! Loved reading your stories!!!! :)))))

Lisa, Yes, she really can be that way, you have to take her as a whole. She was really struggling with what it means to be a Christian and at times went a bit far. However, I still love her very much; but I tend to return to some books more than others. She's a really important voice and can help a lot of people (She helped me a lot). You just have to see her as a whole. By the end of The Acceptable Time my Husband said it got a bit better in terms of Christianity, btw. She's uneven but still gives a lot of light to a lot of people in this confused broken world....

You know, I think you're supposed to spray the cat as they are about to do the "dirty deed"; if you spray them after, they don't connect it with what they just did. That's what I've heard/read. I guess, since most of them don't like water, getting sprayed stops them before they do anything. Anyway, considering that, I don't bother with the spraying because who can ever be there *before* they do a thing? It's just impossible. :D But Cleo had a treat for sure!
