My neighbor L. knocked on my back door last night.
"I brought a treat over for your kitties!," she said.
"Oh, how nice!," I replied. "What is it?"
"Smoked salmon! I did some on the grill tonight, and B. and I couldn't eat it all, so I thought I'd bring the leftovers over for your kitties!"
And she handed me a foil-lined paper plate, with about a half a pound of grilled smoked salmon on it.
"Wow, L.," I said. "Are you sure you won't eat it for lunch tomorrow?"
"No, no," she said. " I want your kitties to have it!"
Man, I couldn't help myself. "Is it okay if the cats and I share?"
"Whaaaaat?," she asked. "It's just leftover salmon! But sure, sure, enjoy it with your kitties!"
Thankfully, the cats agreed to share with me. And that was some damn fine salmon.
