Perhaps you remember Theo, the all-black cat whose staff, Laurie and Gethyn, sent us this entry to the Cat Confession Contest:
If you can’t read it, it says, “My name is Theo and I drink coffee and lick plastic! Really!” His actions and contrition won him a copy of WEIT with a cat drawn in it: a coffee-loving moggie:
Yestereday, however, I received a photo of Theo drinking espresso. He apparently doesn’t drink the whole cup, but when Gethyn has espresso, Theo crawls all over his shoulders and lap, desperately begging for the coffee. He finally gets a bit to drink at the end, which he laps up eagerly—and then takes a nap!
Theo begins getting excited when he hears the beans being ground. Unlike other cats, who run to the sound of a can opener, Theo comes to the grinder!
And then really gets excited when the espresso is brewed:
There you have it—a first, and only on this site: the world’s only espresso-drinking cat.
(p.s. Let us not have tut-tutting, as Theo hardly gets any.)
