I just talked to the puppy class about this last week.
Just now, I hear rustling and snuffling in the breakfast nook/room...where the shelves of food are. I can't see back in there from here. I say in a loud voice..."Hey!". Inara pokes her head around the doorframe, smiles at me ("hey back!") and goes back in to resume rustling and snuffling.
I get up, go into the room, and she comes scooting out licking her lips (so does Fry-cat)...and there is an open bag of Beneful on the floor (from a boarding dog).
Guess my "Hey" wasn't really the best command to use...
