Isabella Gives her Opinion on her Latest Bird Muffins

Isabella Gives her Opinion on her Latest Bird Muffins

February 20th, 2011

One of my favourite parts of the day is sorting through my breakfast bowl. I usually find a treat at the bottom and those brussel sprout pieces make great missiles to hurl at the dogs. Incidentally, my aim is getting much better. But I have noticed a definite downturn in the quality of the muffins recently, I’m very particular about what goes in them. The bits I don’t like up on the floor of the cage, I don’t feel I need to say it clearer than that.

So when I saw the pellets soaking and the ingredients coming out the cupboard I thought I better get out there and offer some advice. I did make it clear that it was advice only, I obviously wasn’t going to get involved in the business of mixing. I have an owner for that, but I need to let her know how much of everything to add then I will get exactly what I want.

There is definitely a place for vegetables, but I’m not sure that ‘in my muffins’ is that place. If my owner wants to put the colourful filler in then she should put them in, in large chunks so that they can be easily picked out. She has tried to be sneaky in the past and used a grater or masher for the vegetables but I am wise to that trick. While her back was turned I slipped the grater under the newspaper. Fooled her. It was hard not to laugh but I have perfected my innocent face and just carried on preening while she looked for it. If I repeated some of the words she said then I’d be banned from walnuts for the rest of the day. The nut issue is key too. It started so promisingly but a recent downturn has been noted, there’s never enough of them in there. Not a problem for someone as clever as me, I dropped the recipe card on the floor and while her back was turned knocked in a few extra nuts. Brilliant, I even managed to grab one for myself as well. I did it three times before I was put on the stand and I was even given another walnut piece to nibble on for coming up with such an ingenious plan.

I must say I was feeling really pleased with myself until I saw the carrots come out. I feel that I’m in danger of labouring my point when I say that I’m appalled and disgusted that anyone given the honour of waiting on me would even consider carrots in my muffins. A few ear nibbles and fly-bys later and she got the message. I distracted her enough so barely half a carrot made it in and all in nice big chunks so I can remove them later. I think I deserve freshly baked muffins every day, if she’s got time to make fresh bread every day then she’s got time to make me fresh muffins. They smell so good when they’ve just come out the oven. Maybe she could make her bread in big batches and freeze it to give her more time to make mine fresh? Just a thought.

OOH! I just heard the oven peeping. That means my muffins are ready. I’m off to see if I can grab a fresh one, like butter wouldn’t melt in my beak hehehe!
