Thankful Thursday

Kitties!

Scouty here.

Do you see what I'm eating?  It's a piece of chikkun jerky!
It's the most delicious thing in the Whole World.
I like it better than Fancy Feast, Temptations, or kibble.   Even Tuna!  I wish that Mommy would feed me nothing but chikkun jerky.  However, she claims I need "proper nutrition" and "vitamins" and other voodoo things and thus limits my chikkun intake.
Mommy is mean.

Look!  There's a piece of chikkun on the table! 
::POUNCE::

::bat bat bat:: 

*chomp chomp gulp chew chew chew swallow*

Another part of Mommy's Evil Plan of Chikkun Rationing is the Getting Close Conditioning
I have to take the yummy morsel right from Mommy's fingers!
Sometimes she puts it in the palm of her hand, and when I fiercely attack gently pick it out she tickles my chin. It's horrible, especially when I lick her palm and fingers to get every last chikkun molecule.
Because I do NOT like to touch or be touched by Humans.  That's how you end up in the stew pot.
(Of course it doesn't count when Mommy strokes my paw or twiddles my tail tip in the morning when I get kibble snax.)

I'm very thankful that I have chikkun jerky to eat. 
I don't remember ever getting any when I lived Outside.

In fact, I don't remember getting much to eat AT ALL when I was feral. 
Maybe I'll let Mommy touch me again some time.

So...Can I have some more? 
I'm still all hungry and stuff!


Happy Thursday!

XX Scouty

  5. Your mum would NEVER make a stew out of you Scouty, you don't have to worry about such things! Chicken jerky looks very yummy :-)

  6. Oh Scouty, yoo and Zippy would get along just great. 'Cept Zippy lets mom touch her a lot and now daddy can can even put her on his lap...but she held on to her affekshun fur almost 11 years! Her and Sadie both say dat yoo don't get no treats and not hardly enuff to eat when yoo is feral and live outside. Dat is awful.

  7. Wow! That chikkun jerky looks great. I wonder if you can buy it in FInland. You look so focused and eager for it! And I think the stewpot thing isn't going to happen: your humans like you too much (and so do we).

  8. Scouty, we don't blame you for being wary of people, but we think getting chicken jerky will help you overcome that fear.

  9. Hmmm! You are very lucky! That looks good and tasty!

    That is interesting! I like to be pets... but only by my mom! Sometimes the human grandma! But absolutly no one else! But I don't like to be held or picked up!

  10. Just take the chicken jerky however your human wants to dish it out, Scouty. You can always go back to not wanting to be touched later.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, Scouty, I let the Human touch me all right (when I am in the mood), but the LAP thing? Uh-uh. NO WAY.

    Well, not unless there's BRUSHING with my most favoritest pink brush involved, and then all bets are off. I will stay in the Human's lap if and only if she continues the brushing. She's so pathetic. Every single time she tries to fool me by switching from my most favoritest pink brushie to her stupid fingers, like I can't tell the difference. AS IF! Of COURSE I can tell the difference and believe you me, I jump down right quick.

    She has never offered me chikkun jerky, though she does force me to lick my Gerbers from her finger. I just can't help myself but it's SO humiliating. I can't help myself. I love the stuff.

  12. Ahhhh, we just love that picture of you about to pounce. You look absolutely adorable. Enjoy your special chicken treats :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, Scouty, you made Mommy laugh when you said you have to lick every last MOLECULE of chikkun.
    Your Mommy is clever to find a way to sneak in pets while you get your chikkun.

  16. Beautiful and gorgeous Scouty!!! Me and Charlie think that mum giving you tons of voodoo stuff is her ploy to give you super powers so she'd get to rule the world with Scrotchy and you kitties as her loyal centurions!!! LOL!!

    Awwwww!!!! We hope you have lots and lots and lots of chikkun jerky!! Take care

  17. Hi Scouty!
    Beef jerky makes all three of us go whacky doo. Chicken jerky sounds yummy too!

  18. Hooray for chicken jerky! Our favorite is freeze-dried chicken liver treats. Being an Inside kitty rocks!

  20. We see great things can be accomplished with a bit of chicken jerky! It looks yummy!

  21. Scouty - dat looks like a delishous treat to me. I'm so happy you has a forever home now. It's not fun on the streets fending your yourself.

  22. Hi Scouty it is quite clear that I have been deprived of all the finer things in life.
    I have never hear of chikkun jerky.......but now that I have I will meow it to the top of the roofs.

  23. Scouty, you are so handsome. That chicken sure looks yummy and glad you were able to have some of it. Great pictures of you. Some of the gals here are drooling over the pictures. Hope all hundreds of you have a great day.

  24. Oh wow, I've never had chicken jerky! I think I need to make my mom feel guilty for depriving me of what looks to be an awesome snack.

    I let my mom pet me when she's feeding me cheese and I admit I'm sometimes tempted to chomp her fingers!

    ReplyDelete
  25. you have me convinced... i want to try some chicken jerky although you know what they say... you are what you eat...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chicken jerky?? My cats would love that! I'll have to give it a try...

    ReplyDelete
  27. We've never had chickhen jerky - just plain oven cooked chickhen - does the jerky one taste scrummy?

    ReplyDelete
  28. We've never had chikkun jerkey either! Sounds yummy.

    You are such a beautiful boy, Scouty. We think you're adorable all propped up on the table like that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. We must try this delicacy!
    Probably good for the ole teeths too!

    We posted yesterday about our garage cat that we take care of. She is very feral and probably will stay that way, but she gets lots of good food here. She probably won't ever come inside like you did Scouty, and mom longs to pet her but we have to be content just to know she is cared for here.

  30. Beautiful, golden, Scouty. It is nice not to be feral, isn't it? You go at your own pace! Your mommy is a wonderful person to helps you get over your ascairts!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You look so cute waiting for your chicken. Some of us still don't like to be touched even being inside for years!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Scouty you are making great progess with being touched! We are very proud of you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Scouty! I SAW that STEW pot! And it had YOUR name on it!!! It skeered me at first but I knew that was all wishful thinking on your mommy's part. Why, I bet she has put that ol' pot away.

    Don't you worry Scouty. You can come to any of our houses and play and get more chikkun. xoxox

    ReplyDelete
  34. Scouty, we bet if you crawled right up in Mom's lap she would give you even more chicken jerky. And we bet you would get scritches, and we bet you would love them! Go on, give it a try.

  35. Scouty, never fear Mommy, she loves you.

  36. Yummy... chicken jerky sounds good. Is it kinda chewey?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oooo, Scouty, you are a BEAUT! I can almost smell that good jerky all the way over here.
    Tell your mom that we don't see the Stylish Blogger Award posted on your page. We thought for SURE you had it. Go to our page and pick it up and post it proudly because you are most definitely stylish!

  39. Hey Scouty, that Chicken Jerky looked pretty good to me.

    I'm real glad you don't live outside on your own any more and that you let your mom touch you once in a while.

  41. Scouty, that chicken jerky looks yummy! We think you mom is pretty clever getting you close to her because our mommy is in love with you and would do the same thing!

  45. Scouty, touchs from your mum is worth getting some chickhen. Plus she loves you too much to make you stew!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh Scouty, we just falled in love with you! I hope someday you think those loving touches feel good, but no matter what I know you will always get your jerky!

  47. Now that doesn't seem like a bad trade you get jerky but have to give pats...
    Now I must try and con my Abbey to get some for me to try! It looks delicous!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Scouty, I've never had chikkun jerky, but I get like that with Greenies...I've been known to pratically bite my mom's fingers off when she gives me one!! I bet I would do the same with that chikkun jerky too.

  49. Mr. Scouty, I'm not saying that Chikkun jerky is not good, cuz I've never had it, but srsly, I can't believe you don't like other foods! I LOVE food! I got in trouble tonight for sticking my paw in Fuzzy's food. Well, my mom should have let me just have it instead of trying to be sneaking and feeding the little thing up on her chair! MY mom is mean, just like YOURS!
