The leftover pesto sauce is so choice.

I just finished off my lunch- a bowl of Healthy Choice Chicken Pesto Classico. It was pretty tasty for, you know, low cal food.

I set the bowl to the side here on the couch, planning to get up in a minute to put it away. That's when Maggie decided to join me. Only she didn't want attention. She went for my bowl.

Normally, I would shoo her away in an effort to train her not to eat out of people's bowls. But, I was in shock that she was eating people food, much less DIET PESTO and well, she's a cat. You can't really train a cat.

So I sat here in shock and just observed as my cat licked the pesto sauce from the bowl. Then she jumped down to groom herself after her meal.

I can't blame her. Like me, she could stand to lose a few pounds.

My guess is we'll both be in the pantry in a couple of hours. (The peanut butter jar is all mine, girlfriend!.)

My dog gets the last bite of everything, but I've never heard of a cat doing that! It must have smelled good!

Hysterical! My cat licked the plate I was eating chocolate cake and butter cream icing off of!

My daughters cat has eaten her spinach from under the table since she was seven years old. Talk about well trained.

LOL. Maybe the pesto was made with catnip?

MY cat always licks the bowl of evening snacks: after the kids go to bed so they don't learn to share with the cat. :-) Love those "adult" privileges!

Will have to try the low-cal pesto. Sounds good!

That's too funny ... the best part is the reference to Ferris Bueller ... "so choice" ... now I need to go home and watch that movie!
