Cat for Lunch

Hunter The Cat and I meet to do lunch every day.
The menu is uninspired, but he hardly seems to mind.
Bologna & Cheese Sandwich (open face) is quite acceptable.
He solves the annoying problem of what to do with the overhang.

Sandwich Bread is rectangular, but slices of Bologna are round.
Bologna that extends beyond the bread is easily pinched off,
Made into cat size bites, and presented with appropriate garnish.
I have yet to hear a complaint from my congenial luncheon companion.

William's Whimsical Words:

Stunt performed by professional cat-lover, but feel free to try it in your own home.
