Who Licked the Spam?

11 Jan

Scratchy and a Spam canSomething really good happened around here. I mean really, really good.

It all started when my younger person was making himself some breakfast. That breakfast smelled wonderful, but I was being a good dog and leaving it alone.

Even when my younger person set his plate on the counter and left for a couple minutes. I didn’t go near it. No, not me.

Everybody thinks I’m so full of mischief, but I’m really a very good dog. I didn’t touch that food on my younger person’s plate.

But Scratchy had other ideas. Everyone thinks he’s such a good cat, but he’s the one who’s full of mischief. He’s just good at keeping it secret most of the time – or he lets me get the blame.

This time Scratchy got caught. He got up on the counter and he licked the Spam on my younger person’s plate. In broad daylight, with everyone watching, Scratchy licked that Spam.

And you know what my younger person did?

This is the best part. He gave that Spam to me.

Scratchy, I take back everything I ever said about you. You can get into mischief any time you want.

    We all know that you are a very good dog, Bongo!

      Sweet Kitten, I’m so glad you realize that. Some people think I’m always getting into mischief, but it’s always Scratchy – and then sometimes he blames me and gets away with it.

      Marina, I’m just hoping Scratchy finds some more Spam to lick. Or maybe a juicy steak.

    Nice person to give you that Spam and not share any with that bad old Scratchy 🙂 Hope it was yummy!

      Jaz, that Spam was really yummy. And it was so fun that my younger person was mad at Scratchy for once instead of being mad at me.

    Haha, yes. Good things can come from bad things too 😉
    Is Spam like tritured meat or something alike?

    • Bongo

      January 11, 2013 at 11:25 am

      YouKai, it’s always special when I get a treat I wasn’t expecting. I’m not sure what tritured meat is, but Spam is processed pork. Spam is so popular in Hawaii that they serve it at McDonald’s. I think that’s where my younger person developed a liking for it.

    Now we wonder if we can get Scratchy to do that more often so you can get more spam…Woof Woof…says Penny…LOL

      Alex and Penny, I’m trying to work out a deal with Scratchy now.

    Gotta watch those sneaky kitties! (you really didn’t suggest that to him, right? I told RC it wan’t your idea.)

      Molly,as long as you let RC have a little bit first you should be in business.

    Oh man!! You hit the jackpot, B.!! We need a cat around here!!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, sometimes cats are really good to have around – but you’ve got to watch them. They can turn on you.

    Dear Scratchy.
    That was not a good thing to do lick younger person’s Spam…but I can understand why you did it. Cats are very clever at jumping quickly onto surfaces…I spend half my time getting my Kitty off onto the floor…but it was naughty of you.
    I am sorry that you did not get a piece of Spam and that Bongo got all of it…so one day I shall buy a tin especially for you.
    Lots of Love P

      Patrecia, I just couldn’t help myself, but I didn’t think it was fair of Bongo not to share any with me. After all, he wouldn’t have gotten it if it wasn’t for me. But I’m so excited that you will get me my own can one day. You’re the best. -Scratchy

      Will and Eko, as long as Scratchy keeps licking Spam and I get to eat it we can be best buddies.

      Benny & Lily, that Spam was the best. I’d share some with you but I ate it all.

    Geez, the year I licked the Thanksgiving turkey, no one gave it to me…I’m coming to your house Bongo Buddy…Lola

    • Bongo

      January 11, 2013 at 2:09 pm

      Lola, the trick is that you have to get a cat to lick that stuff for you. But if you want to come to my house I’ll see if I can get Scratchy to lick a double portion.

    Good thing you had good self control Bongo….. If you would have licked that spam, Scratchy would have had a feast!

      Melissa, it is a good thing Scratchy beat me to it. I get really jealous when Scratchy gets something and I don’t.

    I think that Scratchy sacrificed himself to let you have the spam, Bongo! He is so sweet, isn’t he?
    He probably regreted to have tied you up with Bongo ties, the other day and wanted to make up for it! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 12, 2013 at 11:18 am

      Kevin, I never know what to think about Scratchy. Sometimes he’s really nice to me – like when he licked that Spam – and other times he’s pointing his claws in my direction.

    You could cooperate: if there is on the counter that Scratchy likes, then you get into a little mischief, and whenever there is something yummy for you, then he gets into mischief. Your persons will never find out your secret!

    • Bongo

      January 12, 2013 at 11:34 am

      Kolytyi, that sounds like a great idea. As long as Scratchy doesn’t eat all of his treat. I like all the stuff that he likes.

    So you came out the winner by being good great job and scratchy did you a favor even though he wasn’t trying. Sometimes things work out just perfect 🙂

      Lexie and Mica, maybe I should be good more often. No. Life would be too boring.

      Bassa, does he give you any – or does Barnaby have to lick it first?

    Hey! Maybe Scratchy is not so bad after all 🙂

    • Bongo

      Remy, sometimes Scratchy is okay. I just have to be careful when the claws come out.

    That creates some new opportunities for you, Bongo 🙂

      Angels Whisper, I think Scratchy and I will have to work together now on this mischief thing. Then I can get all the treats.
