Attention fellow kitties! I am afraid I there might be some bad MEWS on the horizon!
I can’t begin to count the hoops that Mamma Cat must have jumped through to try to unravel the ultimate feline secret that we have sworn to protect since beginning of time.It’s a secret that Bastet, the goddess of cats still guards with her life. In fact, all kitties around the world have taken a solemn vow to prevent the two-legged furless ones from discovering it.
So you can only imagine my shock and horror that that Mamma Cat might be close to unlocking this secret, and if she does, I am afraid that if she dares to share it with her species, our goose will be forever cooked.
I realize that y’all have at one time or another turned up your noses to any paltry food offerings your two-legged furless servants have set before you. They haven’t quite got it yet that it’s boring to be served up with the same hum-drum flavors they believe is to our liking.
Of course it was delectable the first few times they offered it and we eagerly ate it. But heck, it gets tiresome when they feed it to us over and over. Variety seems to be the spice of life for the two-legged furless ones. They change their menus constantly to make their meal-times more interesting! So why can’t they do the same thing for us? I don’t understand the reasons they think we are any different.
It’s no secret that I am a slow and picky eater. When Mamma Cat finds something to my liking, (which, I may add, is once in a blue moon), she does a “happy dance” and breathes a sigh of relief. But good grief, why does she assume that if I chow down on it for several days that it is the only food I would deign to eat?
One day she accidently discovered that I really enjoy Aki’s special diet. It was prescribed for him by the pretty lady doctor and Mamma Cat was to feed it to Aki until his tummy was all better. Aki thinks it’s the bees’ knees, but he will eat anything! So when I stuffed my nose into his food dish and gobbled up half of his lunch- she figured it would be perfect for me.
I am just like any cat who might enjoy eating something different once in a while. But after she served it to me repeatedly, I got “fed up” with it (no pun intended), I went on strike! Since cats must eat, Mamma Cat got desperate and opened three cans of different cat food; none of which had any appeal to my highly developed pallet.
But here is where it got interesting. I started getting concerned that Mamma Cat would learn our treasured secret. When she was feeding my brother Edgar Allen Poe I snuck into the room to check out what he was eating, I pushed him aside and finished off his meal. Mamma Cat was absolutely stunned!
Yes, we all know that stolen food is much more appealing! But if she puts two and two together and then tries to feed me this way- I think my brothers will resent me a lot! I sure wish she hadn’t witnessed me in the act of stealing his food, since this could lead to serious feeding squabbles. It’s a set up which doesn’t seem fair.
Fellow cats, I need your help! How do you think I should handle this situation? Please leave me a comment with some helpful suggestions.
