Yesterday I was in a rush to get to the lab. I had to finish the workup on this nitrite/nitrate assay that I was doing. I always get nervous and anxious with this assay because there are so many steps in doing it that is always easy to mess it up.

As a result, I forgot my lunch at home. I put it in a bag and accidentally grabbed the wrong bag as I headed out the door. My lunch was a nice pate with french bread. But leaving it at home was not the worst part. Oh no. Even the fact that the nice pate would likely spoil by the time I got back home. That was a minor issue as well. The main issue of this problem is that I have cats.

These same cats get into bread when I am not at home and nibble on it. I could only imagine what they would do to the french bread and the pate while I was gone. Most likely gorge themselves on it and then get tummy upset and puke pate vomit everywhere. I already was prepared for the worse scenario when I got home. I figured that the pate and french bread combo would have been eaten, smeared everywhere, and then puked on the cleanest areas of the house. I figured my house would stink to high heaven from pate vomit incubating all day.

But no. When I got home, all the cats were soundly asleep. The pate and bread was still untouched (although the pate had seen better days considering it had been left out all day). I could not believe my eyes. Apparently the cats had been sleeping ALL day in my absence and never discoverd the little treasure before them.

Sometimes cats will surprise you...

They're waiting to lull you into a false sense of security

Of course they are. You can never let your guard down with them.
