Sasha’s greatest triumph

Although she once accidentally turned the oven on by walking across it, we haven’t been all that strict about keeping our cat Sasha off tables and countertops, especially if there’s no food on them.

However, there’s one thing we have consistently denied her.

She wants to eat at the table.

My wife and I have long joked that Sasha is mad we only came home with two chairs to sit at our kitchen counter, which is where we eat most of our dinners.

Instead, her food and water dishes have been on the kitchen floor, next to the door.

Until now.

Now, her setting is on the dining room table, the same perch where we eat when guests come to the house.

Her next goal is to be allowed in the basement.

So why is Sasha’s food in a much-more-prominent spot? What had caused our change in attitude?

Ants.

We’re not sure where they’re coming from, and as much as we clean the area and remove them from the scene, more of them keep coming back, and needless to say, they like having cat food on the floor.

So, at least for now, Sasha’s food is on the dining room table where the ants can’t get at it.

Her next goal is to be allowed in the basement.
