That's not incessant meowing of a lower life form you would hear if you were with me when I took this pic, it was Sammers trying his Jedi Ice Cream Mind Trick (he has never grasped that the JMT is not usually audible) on my ice cream bar... alas, to no avail.
A little while later there was quite a different reaction to my Orbit "sweet mint" gum (which I only purchased to see what the heck they meant) wrapper which I had held out for him just before this:
I must say that was pretty much my reaction, too, once I put it in my mouth. I kinda think it looks more like someone fed him an umeboshi plum or some of those sour candies that are all the rage (and which always make me sad Mom isn't still around - she'd be beside herself with that trend; she loved sour candies).
I really can't say I'd ever before actually seen a cat pucker its lips.
