What a nice pic of the dinner waiting to be served!
It was at a similar time a few years back ... dinner just placed on the table, but not yet served ... when my 6-month old kitten leapt to the table. Spotting the bird, she crouched down, and a giant grin crossed her face. "Mine ... all MINE" seemed to be her thought!
On the cat, a few years back after finishing our fill at a friends house of whom we are going to later for the anual feast, the left over half turkey was set aside in the kitchen and we retired to have a few drinks... Then there was a thump in the kitchen as the cat attempted to carry off the remains of the turkey - appraently to its lair. Tried to drag it off behind the stove... Bad kitty, very bad kitty.....
