I wonder if a good insulated cup would work (for a while). As to "micros
and all those nasties" the things I find myself re-heating are usually
corn-on-the-cob, cranberries and beans (after I've given them a good
wash). I think that's at least as safe as if he just ate them cold later
in the afternoon. His favorite treat in the afternoon is warmed
tangerine sections *if* (and only if) I remove the membrane! Sometimes
it takes me 3/4 of an hour to eat a tangerine! Then again... it sure
Basil used to eat at the dinner table with me all the
time but, in this apartment, I don't *have* a dinner table and he doesn't
like to sit to on floor and eat off the coffee table like I do!
Has anyone else noticed fresh(ish) corn on the cob with a white sticky
mold on it? I bought some at the grocery store and was really appalled.
This was meant for *people* after all, and I found my self scrubbing it
to within and inch of its life!

You know, most of my friends just pop a "Lean Cuisine" in the microwave,
pour out half a can of flat Diet Pepsi and call it dinner! It's *so*
nice to talk to people who pamper their pets as much (or more) than I do!
