I went downstairs to feed my cat. While I was grabbing the bag of feed he went upstairs and jumped up on my desk.
I returned upstairs to find him eating some lemon pound cake I had just sliced for myself before realizing he was out of food.
I have to hand it to him; his plan was well-executed. He distracted me by acting hungry and then made a break for my food while I was feeding him.
My cat is a jerk.
