Where Have These Been All of My Life?

What the heck are these things?!?

Hey! Where's my plate?

There was a special celebration dinner at our house last night. The reason was boxes. In honor of the very last box being unpacked this weekend, it was decided that crab would be made since Mommy can now find all of her kitchen stuff (see that lobster cracker thingy? It was packed with our garage things...) .
Anyway, I'd never seen, smelled or tasted crab before. My love for all things HAM!! is well documented, like here and here. I am crazy for shrimp. I adore Temptations. I love steak. But crab?!? AAAIIIEE - that stuff takes my kitty taste buds to a whole new level! We all got a little taste of it. I loved it so much that I am afraid I was a little rude to my siblings. Threats were made and insults were hurled. Diamond recieved many Paw of Death cries. I am not proud of my behavior, but I plead crab insanity. That stuff is good! Sadly, Mommy says it is very, very very expensive. We won't be having crab again for quite a long time. Sigh...

Congratulations on the unpacking of all the boxes. That is a huge achievement, worth of a crab celebration.

Gosh, those things look interesting. Mom likes crab but never cooked their legs. If you liked the taste, I bet I would too!

I have never had crab, but my Mum says it is furry, furry good. My Mum said your Mum is right, it is very expensive unless you live right on the ocean.

Concatulations for getting all your boxes unpacked! It must be nice to be all settled in to your new home!

Heh, heh. The paw of death is awesome! We are so glad your people shared with you! You have been through just as much as they have and you deserved a treat too!

Oh yes, Crab Insanity. I know it well and I've only had it once as well. You can not be blamed for what happens during Crab Insanity, I've even seen my mommy stab my daddy with a crab fork on his way to the butter. I myself wouldn't stay off the table. It isn't your fault.
Thanks for keeping me company while my beans were gone. I've not gotten to play Tent WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARS in my own house before. That was tons of fun!

DK & The Fluffies said...

Crab is wonderful - just wait until you try lobster!

Caesar and Princess said...

crab can drive you crazy, Parker. You must be very careful... it is highly addicting and then next thing you know you will be in rehab... and they will force you to eat rice for a month... to bring you down from the high.

(we love crab too, sometimes mom buys the fake stuff for us to eat)

Purrrrs to all of you and congrats on getting the last box unpacked. Our beans still have boxes in the basement from 5 years ago... never opened...

Oh my, Parker, those crab legs look good! Anastasia would inhale them!!!
Thank you so much for your support, it is very much appreciated!
I miss my little prankster very very much but I know she would want me to move on. She wouldn't even have waited that long, probably... But she is a very unique little cat.

Karen Jo said...

Big congratulations to your Mom for getting all the boxes unpacked. I am very glad that the flooding didn't get your house. I was a bit worried about you when I heard about it, but I was away and couldn't check up on you. Your crab legs look very yummy. I like crab, too.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Happy no more boxes day! We never had that crab stuff, but it looks good. You say it's better than HAM? I'll even snatch ham right out of Grr or Cocoa's mouths when I see it.

Crab looks yum! Paw of Death and other bad behaviors seem perfectly justified to me when UIOC (under the influence of crab).
