Sniff, Lick & Cover (Catfinition): Prescribed etiquette for a finicky sophisticat’s evaluation and dismissal of food. One, approach the food, stopping two to three inches away. Two, stretch neck out, and deeply and suspiciously sniff the food. Three, step forward and give the food one lick. Four, turn around and mime covering the food as though feces is being buried.
Sniff, lick & cover is appropriate for all foods, regardless of price, source, or past enjoyment of the food.
