Dexter told Delilah that he just couldn't resist jumping onto the countertop to watch an especially interesting bird, but he also cautioned her that she should not do as he does. It was an extremely risky thing to do because he has been told over and over again NOT to climb on the counters. He admits he had a moment of weakness this morning because this amazing bird was flying around teasing and tempting him. What is a cat supposed to do in the face of so much temptation.
Delilah listened and heeded his advice, but to her it is much easier. She isn't big enough to jump on the counters no matter how many tempting treats are on offer - yet!
