Dialogue with the cat: A brief, repeating drama
Scene: The kitchen. I am making khatte channe (chickpeas in tamarind).
I open a can of chickpeas. Even before I pierce the lid She Who Must Be Petted comes racing into the kitchen with her tail twitching.
Me: It's chickpeas. Not cat food.
Me: You don't like chickpeas. Besides, what's with the can opener deal? I don't even feed you canned catfood.
Me: It's chickpeas!
Repeat until fadeout.

Have you considered trying chickpea flavored kibble? Look for it in the kosher market in the falafel flavored pet foods section.

You know what? My cat has never even had canned cat food and she comes running each and every single time we use the can opener. It's instinct.
