Cat Food

25 Feb

We’ve been working crazy hours this week.  We scream home as fast as we can so that we can try to give James some quality time, before getting back to work, then squeeze in some sleep.   The cats are bearing the burden of our inability to effectively work-life balance. 

We got a little low on cat food earlier in the week, and I couldn’t get it together enough to remember to buy them food.  Naturally, they ran out of food completely.  I gave them deli-sliced turkey thinking that they’d fall all over themselves with gratitude for getting such a nice treat.  They gave me very confused looks, pushed the meat around without eating it, then stomped huffily away.  Later in the evening I saw them hunting moths out of desperation.  They took breaks to cast murderous glares through the front window.

Naturally, Boy and Girl Cat (they’ve been renamed again) were ravenously hungry the next morning.   More turkey was not in order so I thought that something that resembled cat food more closely might go over better.  Something cat-bite sized and crunchy perhaps?  Well take note everyone, cats do not, I repeat, DO NOT like Cheerios.

    My kitties do the same thing. I’m thinking I’ll be their best friend with some fresh meat and they stare at me and plot my murder while I sleep. The tubby one? Oh, she’s got it out for me.

    Steenky- aren’t cats wonderful, so loving, so thankful for what they get?

    Jodi- most cats are wierd, but Oscar? wow. Tuna hasn’t been a big hit in our house yet, so no tuna. I did find a really old can of chicken, I should have tried that.

    That sounds pretty ungrateful to me.

    We have no pets, but we do feed a cat who thinks we are his owners. Sometimes I think I’ll stop feeding him so he’ll go away, but then he beats up the dog next door and I’ll rummage the pantry for something he might like. I have yet to find anything that the cat won’t eat. I guess being a “homeless” cat makes you more willing to eat what you can get. (Beggars can’t be choosy.)

      Wow- I had visitors this weekend and I didn’t even have to set up the spare bedroom.

      Mrs Mouthy- yes it does feel good, maybe someday my site will be as good as yours.

      Pammie- our cats are technically homeless. They were born wild, and you’d think that they’d take what they can get, but darn them if they aren’t getting picky. Beggars can be choosers

      Captain- yes I think they are very ungrateful.
