Is this person an animal whisperer, or just an experienced cat owner?
The funny thing is, when I'm hungry, I totally do this too. Or I used to, when I was a kid. I'd stand in the kitchen and open the fridge repeatedly, talking to my mom and watching her cook dinner. Not helping her, obviously, because I was a brat. Lol.
Now when I go home to visit my parents, I'm a good helpin' girl :) and plus I love to cook, so helping cook dinner isn't even a chore anymore.
Do your pets do something funny when they're hungry? Or do you?
