When I was young, I loved to watch my Dad shave or to be in the kitchen with my Mom while she was cooking. Our cat, Jack, loves to be with us in the kitchen when we are preparing our meals. He enjoys looking out of the kitchen window, but he isn’t allowed in the window when it’s time to cook because he has to walk on the counter to get to the window. Of course, we sanitize the counter before we start to cook, & then Jack settles in on his Kitchen Supervisor Chair. He seems to know when he his relegated to the chair & is content to keep an eye on things until it’s time for him to eat, which isn’t nearly as often as he would like.
