Ruby Tuesday – NOT in the Kitchen

Ruby here. I need to defend my reputation.

For some reason, all of you have this impression that I spend all of my time hanging out in the kitchen trying to snarf human food.

As these pictures prove, when the humans are downstairs, I can hang out with them.

And when the humans move to come up the steps, I race to the top.

Uh, yes, that is the kitchen at the top of the steps. What is your point?

    Ruby, I doubt you have anything but the purest motives!

    We understand, you were in the kitchen simply for demonstration purposes of upstairs and down, right?

    With that girlish figure, Ruby, you definitely don’t look like you’re spending too much time in the kitchen. Maybe it’s all the time you spend running up and down the stairs.

    No point, Ruby. I can tell you’re very busy guarding the stairs.

    Ruby, you should receive all of the credit and respect you deserve for being so diverse in your interests.

    It sure looks like they take a long time to get up those stairs, Ruby – hope the wait was worth it.

    Your expression in that second picture is absolutely priceless, Ruby! I am sure that you run to the top of the steps only to make sure that it’s safe and there’s nobody waiting to do harm to your pack up there and NOT because food might appear!

    What, did they think the kitchen entrance would guard itself?

    Looks like you have the best of both worlds sitting on those steps, Ruby!!
