Cats are terrible at sharing. They’ll fight over one bowl of food when there are clearly two full bowls left out for both of them.
The same goes for treats. I used to give both cats a treat at the same time, but Olive perfected a maneuver in which she was able to swipe the treat out from under Hazel, pop it into her mouth and swallow it whole in under two seconds.
So in this strip, Hazel invents the Shame Net. A device capable of immobilizing those who engage in troublesome behavior. If I had a Shame Net, I’d use it in movie theaters a lot. Talkers and texters would get the Net for sure. Who would you use the net on?
