Kitteh can haz tuna?

Cats have amazing noses. Ever since Reilly smelled me opening a can of sardines a few months ago (yes, I like sardines--don't judge), he has associated the sound of cans opening with the scent of fish, and he comes running. If he can't hear the can opening, but it's some kind of seafood, his nose will tell him to come running.

Tonight he was sleeping in our bedroom and I was in the kitchen making dinner. I got out two cans of tuna, opened one, and then went in the living room to say to Andrew, "I just opened up some tuna; I wonder how long it will take Reilly to come running."

The words were barely out of my mouth when here comes Reilly from the bedroom, looking all expectant! LOL He followed me into the kitchen and gave me pleading looks and did his loud, special I-want-fish meow until I gave him a bit.

I love cats!


  1. Haha, I love this! Our cats would always be running every time Jeff made tuna sandwiches for his lunch. We used packets instead of cans, but they always knew. So cute.

  2. What's funny is that Albus doesn't pay much attention to food. He did finally come in for his tidbit but he's nowhere near as vigilant as Reilly. LOL

  3. While my cats love tuna, Pickles is the only one who comes running, which amuses me since she's deaf. She's got a nose on her! I always give her a tiny bit. :)
