Attention all kitties and puppies ...I just discovered something new and amazing and I want to share it with you it is called


This term has me slightly confused because you actually bring it home. Here at the Diva residence the only food I've ever smelled is
Mom's cooking.  She and Dad go OUT to EAT several times a week
but they have never brought anything back with them.  Friday afternoon Mom said she was going to get take out at Neomonde, their favorite Mediterranean Cafe.
I didn't have a clue what was about to happen....
 Oh happy days, never in any of my 9 cat years have I ever smelled such lovely aromas come out of brown bags.  I asked Mom why she had never brought take out food home in brown bags before.
She is still trying to think of a satisfactory answer.
Mom here:  I wish you all could have seen Madi's little pink nose sniffing.  It was absolutely adorable, she was using her very best table manners but every so often she would ever so slightly inch towards a container to get a better sniff.  If you are ever in Raleigh, NC and you like Mediterranean food, I highly recommend Neomonde.  We have been eating there for more years than I care to remember.  It is ALWAYS good.  Their hummus is exceptional and they make their own bakery products.  Click here to see their menu.


  1. Thats Funny Madi!! You busted them out!! HA! I bet the smells smelt licious! Did you snag any nips of food???

  5. Madi, If your mommy can say you were using your very best table manners, For me that means you make a right move, my dear !
    Keep up a good work for extra..extra..nom nom

  6. A diva....with table manners!! They just don't make cats like they used to!! You go girl.

    Oh yes, take out food. Actually, ANYTHING that I don't have to cook and be in a hot kitchen right now, sounds heavenly.

    WINGS!! [a short, slideshow video of hummingbirds feeding and playing]

    Have a great Tuesday. Hope you can find time to stop by and shout out a 'howdy do'.

  7. Oooooh, I can smell it way down here! Billy

  8. I LIVE for Take Out food. Papa often brings home take out on Friday nights and I am always the first one to meet him at the door!

    Your pal, Pip

  9. It sounds very yummy!!! Madi you are so cute :-)

  10. You got us drooling over here.... Looks great.

    pawhugs, Max

    Wish this was a scratch and sniff post!!

  12. I think I will go and dine there tonight....is it far from my house? Now how do I get to Map Quest again....

  13. Madi, you look adorable! We bet your nose was working overtime with that food. It sounds delicious! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

  14. Very unique cuisine, sounds yummy from their menu!
    I bet your nose was sniffing from the aromas, Madi!
    Mom & Dad are lucky to have a Mediterranean Cafe nearby!
    I bet their Baklava is out of this world!
    Hugs, Kathy

  15. Madi, it was so generous of you to sniff that food to make sure it wasn't poisened before your humans consumed it. Did you get any shwarma or chicken or ka-bob??

    Inquiring noses want to know...

  16. I love hummus! I would be sniffing those bags too!

  17. Sounds good. I made some hummus the other day!

    You have nice manners Madi.

  18. Madi, we hope you let your Mom know that you expect this to happen again.

    Soon and Often.

  19. Wish we were allowed to jump up on the table like you!
    Licks and sniffs,

  20. Madi! You've never experience the Most Awesome BLISS of takeout food? Oh, dear. Oh, dear. I had no idea you were so very sheltered! Isn't it simply dee-vine? Did mom and dad share with you? I hope so. Cuz that's the best part!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  21. miss madi!

    yuppers, takeout food is the bestest!! did you get any nibbles of the yummy delish goodies?
    that neomonde place sounds really tasty! me and asa and mama looked at the menu and just about passed out with the delights! we'd loooove to try it. heehee. we have a good mediterranean place near our house called al amir, but they do not have takeout. you have to be all fancy pants and go sit down, and me 'n asa can't go. boohoo!!!

    the booker man

  22. Nham nham nham.... you´re so lucky Madi!

  23. Our mom wants to know if Neomonde delivers to Michigan! ;-)

  24. Madi, please tell me that your mom brings something home for you when she does go out to eat. Otherwise... it's like... kitty abuse. Gracie always does the once over smell when we come home from eating out. Then its 'what did you bring home in that doggy bag?'
    So glad you got to find out about take out, Madi. I hope mom shared.

  25. There is always a first time for everything, Madi!
    Sure it smelled yummilicious!
    Kisses and hugs


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
