Now, as it is, mom compares dad's and Cleo's nutritional "needs", and that's a term that mom uses quite loosely. You see, both Cleo and dad have similar eating issues. It's like that's what they live for.
Anyway, Cleo thinks she's pretty sly. This happens often while mom and dad are sitting in the living room eating dinner. It always appears Cleo is feeling affectionate and wants to be near mom and dad, but they know that it's not out of wanting to be near them. It's their food she's trying to get closer to.

Mom was nibbling her toast and had the plate sitting on top of a book on the bed. Cleo, of course, jumped up and stealthily (she always think mom and dad don't notice) shuffled closer and closer to the toast.
As much as they'd like to share they know they need to be mindful of Cleo's intake. Mom ate all but the last little piece of toast, and Cleo curled right up next to the plate to keep her eye on it. You know, just in case mom didn't feel like finishing it.
