Jasmine has to be forced to eat, most days. Otherwise she'll sit and guard her food all day, protecting it from everything except ants. Then she won't want to eat it later either, because the ants bite her nose.
So now we have a game, in which she has to eat her food before a mean old stick gets it. One of us mans the stick, which constantly tries to sneak up and grab her food when she stops eating. She gets annoyed, snaps at the stick, and eats a little more.
Sometimes this game takes a while to finish, so I pull out a chair.
Guess what greeted me the last time I did that?
I just love how he aligned himself with the green stripe, for camouflage!
