No food....

You think you have your Mom trained, and she forgets what she's supposed to do.

We watched the food bin get really low all week. Did she get any food on her way home from work? No. Saturday morning, she feeds us, barely. Not enough food left to give a cat a meal. Saturday during the day, she runs around doing all kinds of "er runds", and even brings home human food, which she won't let us have. Saturday night comes around and she says "Are you hungry?" These are trigger words that let us know it's dinner time. All three of us come running and Mom goes into the pantry.

And comes out empty-handed.

She finally remembers that we need food. Now, she did leave immediately to get us food (Mom: thankfully, there is a Petco only 2 miles away). However, you don't tease cats like that! That was mean! Maybe we need to sell her like Kukka and Brach are doing with their Mom. How much are Moms worth anyway?

Lizzie & Firenze

Knightly: Notice she didn't run out of my food.

Lizzie: But she still didn't feed you until after she got home with our food.

Mom: I confess, I forgot. I had to wait until I got paid on Friday anyway. There is plenty of food now.

Firenze: Mum, we'll forgive you this time, but don't let it happen again!

Don't forget to purray for Crystal who had a to make an emergency trip to the vet. She has kidney failure and they put an IV in her and a catheter (yuck!).

Holy crap! Humans can be so selfish and inconsiderate some times! My mom has done that very same thing. Never is she out of food, though.

We'll let you know if we find somewhere to send her. We are still working out the logistics, though. Brach is convinced that we still somehow need her...that an imperfect mother is better than no mother at all.

I'm not convinced...

We say, emergencies like this are what pawn shops are for! Just don't hock the computer, Mom.

This seems to be a very widespread problem with moms. We blogged about ours at "Get With it Mom" on 12/19/05

It's almost impossible to get any good help anymore!

Besides Katie who is only two, I think I'm running a home for aging felines--one takes thyroid, one is diabetic and another had all her teeth pulled last Tuesday!! But my oldest--almost 17--is doing fine. I'll purray for the kitty who went to the emergency vet.

Reni... the kitty lover.

No way mum will ever run out of food for me. That is one thing she is prepared on. There is an extra bag in the garage, very large size, inside a metal can so no other critters get at it.

Well we hope she made it up to you with some really good stuff! They are so self centered.

Oh no, our mommy does that too. she always has crunchies, but sometimes she doesn't give us stinky goodness because she forgot to get some.

Hey y'all, your mama should be ashamed of herself and give you extra treats and stuff to make up for almost starving you. Also, if there is no cat food, she should give you bean food - like real tuna or shrimpies or chicken.

OH NO!!! Running out of food...for someone who loves his food as much as I do, it's the worst nightmare! My mum would never do that to me...she's very good at remembering to stock up. However I am not quite so sure about my dad, I once heard him saying "surely that cat could live for 3 days on his fat alone". But I think he was joking...I hope he was joking! PS I have added you to my blog links.

Roscoe:Do these humans have ANY idea how stressful it is for a cat to watch his bowl get low???? Opus freaked out the other day when the bowl was LOW (not even empty).

Opus: I didn't freak out! I was just alerting the human of the condition in hopes that it wouldn't run out. It is hard in Italy because ALL (and I mean ALL) the stores close by 7pm on Saturday and NOTHING (I mean NOTHING) is open again until Monday at 8am! No Walmart to run to in the middle of the night if your run out of food over the weekend. What is wrong with these people in this country any?

That's right! You kitties lay down the law, make sure that doesn't happen again!

We'll keep Crystal and her people in our thoughts.

I know the heart pounding of that. My bag has a strange disconcerting rattle.

Glad you're restocked. That deserves a 2 am joy dance don't you think?

I hope your mom has been giving you plenty to eat while you recover from the excitement of the nap-a-thon! I've just had a terrible near-starvation experience myself, just been blogging about it!
