How to Safely open Small Pull Tab Lids...

OKAY...    We told you about those DELICIOUS Thanksgiving Day Dinners from Merrick's.   They ARE sort of Small Cans...  and Mom was having some Worries about Pulling the Tabs to Open them... She was afraid that she would cut her Treat Dispensing Fingers...AND SO WERE WE...
   SO we had to REMIND her BECLAWS she is ANCIENT and most forgettable about the BUNNY shaped thingy that opens cans Safely..
        SEE????    The Pull tab is not even TOUCHED...   she just attaches the Bunny thingy and wiggles his "BODY" into place.. and then   uses his EARS to make the can go AROUND and AROUND...  and in less than the Twitch of a Bunny's Nose... the can and top are SEPARATED...   
 Mom has had this thingy FUREVER... got it from QVC...   and they don't seem to have the EXACT same thingys any longer...    BUTT they DO have other types that SEPARATE the Sealed Lids from the Can Pawt...   with NO SHARP EDGES on either the LID or the Can... and NO EDGE that keeps the foodable stuffs from being COMPLETELY removed..  
THIS second Picture is BEFORE the can was OPENED...  so you could see the FUNNY BUNNY Face on the thingy...   These TYPE of Can Openers are available at Kitchen Stores and other stores that have Kitchen Sections...  
       Mom LOVES the BUNNY...   he has little Pinchers and she uses THOSE to lift the lid off... with OUT ever EVER touching the thingy... even though it would be safe to do so... since there are NO SHARP EDGES on the LID or the CAN...       BUTT WAIT... there's MORE...   on BIG cans of our Wet Foodables...   the Top can be set BACK ON... and it becomes a LID...  fur when we don't get a FULL can of Wet foodable.   
We thought we would share this with you since we ALL like to keep our Moms .. snack and kibble Fingers Clean and SAFE.

Now that sounds like a great gadget. I always have to be so careful and use a knife to lift up the pull ring thingy first, otherwise I get my finger stuck. Fortunately Miss Oswin's wet food comes in small pouches or she would never get hers!

Any gadget that saves the Treat Fingers is a top-notch gadget in my book!

Food from a can? No way. Everyone knows that the best food is the food the other dog is eating.

What a cute way to open cans! You have to protect those treat dispensing fingers at all costs.

That's a handy tool. You are so right about keeping the treat fingers injury FREE! We have a thingy that pulls the tab...and we use the lid you sent us for any leftovers.

Ma has one kinda like that too...though, sometimes it doesn't work on certain cans, butts she loves it!
And, anythings that saves Ma from sharp objects is TOPS in my book! Ma REALLY shouldn't be around sharp objects.....really.
Kisses,

We think that dohickey is neat. Jan needs one but we have never seen one and only get to shop at Walmart, so it isn't in our future. She did, however, contact Merrick and let them know there is a big problem opening their lids. They were very nice and said they will pass on the information.
