So, there's this blog I follow - Peas and Thank You - in which the blogger/mother/cookbook author occasionally makes a snarky remark about the family cat. Apparently, she and the cat haven't gotten along very well since she started making babies and it makes for some charming off-handed remarks along the way. Since the theme is peas, she's Mama Pea, married to Pea Daddy, and the cat is Pea Kitty.
Angst is trying to usurp Pea Kitty's throne.
I don't think he actually wants to move to the Pacific Northwest and live with a family he doesn't know which includes two darling children to torment his anti-social little butt, however, he did earn the name from Mister during dinner tonight.
Tonight we had Spicy Vegetable Ragout from Quick Vegetarian Pleasures. I completely failed to get a picture of it because it was pretty busy at work, I was hungry, and I just wasn't thinking about how fun it would be to snap a photo of my food to share with the world. Honestly, my brain had already left dinner and fast forwarded to the imaginary E.L.F. cosmetics shopping spree I've decided to try, inspired by my all-day make-up tutorial marathon yesterday.
You don't need pictures, though, to hear about the best part of this dinner. It was Angst discovering he loves peas. Seriously. Possibly more than chickpeas and maybe even spinach. He came over to bother Mister when I set down dinner. Like normal, Mister selected something from his bowl to convince the kitty he didn't want to share are dinner. Also like normal, Angst loved what Mister shared and wanted more...and more... and more. Pea after pea dropped to the floor and was scooped into his mouth after many squeaks and sad eyes at Mister. We couldn't believe how crazy he was being, so we just kept giving him peas. He probably ate 10 before we said, "sorry, no more" and showed the pouting kitty our empty bowls.
I never would have guessed. Mama Pea? You need another cat?
