About Helping Out in the Kitchen: A Kitten's Guide

Previous Entry Helping Out in the Kitchen: A Kitten's Guide Dec. 20th, 2006 @ 11:17 am Next Entry
Following on from last week's Kitten's Guide to Camouflage, this week Xena and Kai help out in the kitchen and show just a few of the many ways a kitten can aid the process of food preparation.

First up we have Kai demonstrating the art of choosing the right garlic.


Note how Kai tests the firmness of the garlic bulbs with his claw. Also note the perfect choice of location. Out of the cook's way and perfectly positioned to oversee the kitchen so as not to miss out.

Next Kai and Xena demonstrate the 'Too Many Cooks' rule.


Full marks for concentration but none for position. This is a risky manoeuvre that, more often than not, leads to temper tantrums from the cook - humans are very excitable about food - followed by the kitten, or kittens, being escorted from the kitchen.

Next, we have Kai and Xena showing the importance of cleaning up after your human - preferably when they're not looking.


Another risky manoeuvre - 90% of all kitten accidents happen in the kitchen - and one that often leads to the example below: Kitten Helper being escorted off the premises.

I dunno...I think Kai has that expression of contentment. "I finally get the attention I so richly deserve."

My cats like flour, but their newest fascination is carrots. Freshly peeled carrots.

I love this type of story telling. Not just random cat pictures, which are great, but I love the photo-journaling you did. It tells a story. I must say that I love, love that last photo of Kai being escorted out of the kitchen. I can't quite read the look on his face but you can tell he definitely knows that he is being removed from the premises.

I hope you do more of these, now I'm off to search for the camouflage story.

Glad you like them. There's a whole series - out every Wednesday - and stretching back months.

I checked out your journal via kittypix, and I've added you to my friend's list. Hope it's okay, but let me know if it's a problem.

Question by your forum

Hello! I want to know, where you have a section for advertising at a forum? Or it is not present? I have not found it.
P.S. Are you see storm in Europe? It's a horror...
