A few weeks ago Holly began stealing Wilbur's food dish from his "apartment," as we call it -- the big crate stuffed with bedding where he spends the night, as well as eats his meals. At first we thought she was only doing her usual pre-wash for us, but then we began suspecting -- correctly, as it turns out -- that she got tired of waiting for the little tyke to finish his meal and would lift the dish out to finish it herself. Rat!
So now we either make sure she is outside while he is still eating, or we are there to keep an eye on her. The other evening when I took these photos, Wilbur had finished and dove back under the bedding for a post-dinner nap. But when he heard her licking the dish, he popped back up, perhaps thinking he had inadvertently left some food in the bowl:
Satisified that he hadn't, he disappeared again, leaving Holly to remove the bowl:
And finish the pre-wash:
