Riddle Me This!

16 Apr

What do you get when you cross a sometimes ordinary house cat, a late lasagna dinner, and a pasta press?

Pepe le Pew, eat your heart out, baby!  There’s a new skunk in town, and his name is Eli. 

No, Eli is not trying to grow up trans-species, passing as a spotted skunk, or trying to impress any lady skunks in the neighborhood.  Believe it or not, this happens every single time we get out the pasta maker.  It seems little mooch-master here has a penchant for really weird foods; in this case, flour.  That’s right, folks, he will pace around the kitchen whenever we are making pasta just waiting for the moment when some drifts down his way.  Then he hoovers it up as fast as he can.  Obviously, as he is hunkered down underneath the counter, more and more flour inevitably floats down, spotting his body.  A usually fastidious animal, he will stalk around for hours after with his new white markings.  Weirdest. Cat. Ever.

Side Note:  This totally still counts as an April 15th post, since I’m still up for the day 🙂

    I don’t think this picture even fully captures the glory of flour covered Eli.
