The Case of the Disappearing Cat Food!

So I have to tell this story...  We feed the cats their food on the cat tree in the spare room.  We put it up there so Edwin will not eat it, however, we do have a couch in the room and he will stand on top of it and eat the food if we don't put the gate across the doorway.  For a few months now I have been suspicious that he is able to get under the gate (I have a space of about 6 inches below, so the cats can easily get under it instead of jumping over).  So, I tested him.  I have done this twice.  I stand on one side of the gate and call him, he tries to wiggle under and is whining the whole time, but obviously he is not able to do it...!  The other day, I was heading out to work, and as I got into my car, I realized I had forgotten my cell phone.  When I went back into the house, Edwin did not come to the door... "strange", I thought.  I looked around the corner up the stairs, and sure as heck... there he was, on the OTHER side of the gate!!  Boy was he shocked to see me!  What a good little actor he is tricking me to think he can't get under the gate!  No wonder he isn't losing any weight (he is suppose to be on a diet)... and no wonder the cats are always looking for food!
