Being a growing boy, I am always hungry. In reality, I am almost 5 and am told I should be a fully grown adult by now, but hey, I am an always young at heart type of guy, okay?
When she takes a lot of time preparing my food, I stay behind her and use a particular body signal to communicate my desperation. I get on my hind legs and rub against the corner of the kitchen wall by the stove, where she is standing cooking my food. She instead laughs every time. What's so funny about that, doesn't this raise an alarm code red that someone is dying of starvation???
However, when she cooks the food for me, instead of opening a tin which is quicker for sure, it is usually extra good and bigger portion, so I may say that it is worth the wait! ;-)
