It's Mum - What She Didn't Do

Since mum is the purson who takes the pictures, she isn't in them! But last week she came home and put this on the front of cold box. It does look like her. She got it when her company had a picnic. They had a guy who would do pictures of people. It is her! It really looks like her!
Plus she came home with stuff, one a prize for winning at bingo! The other a blankie for just showing up.
As I said on Monday mum is on my short list for ignoring or forgetting me. Last Saturday after she went out to eat with Miss Lynn she came home, did a few things and went to bed. She forgot to feed me and clean my box. So William was partially correct, she forgot to feed me.

So very early Sunday morning I started jumping on the bed, getting on her feets, knocked a fake plant on the floor. Just generally made myself noticeable, nothing got her out of bed early. Once she did get up and walked into the kitchen she immediately noticed my VERY empty bowl and put crunchies in in immediately. She 'pologized but that didn't make it right. My little tummy was rumbling.

Then she went down to wash all her clothes and finally cleared the box out too. Thanks, it really needed that, plus a refill on the litter.
Don't let it happen again.

*gasp!* Your bowl was....EMPTY? Oh, the travesty. When will these humans learn that we own them, not vice versa?

Oh boy! I didn't realize it was that You need to get lots of extra treats and skritches for this. And maybe your own bouquet of flowers.

Your mom won AGAIN! She is one lucky lady. We remember when she won that nice kitty daybed for you.
Our mom has been getting forgetful about checking for bowl refills lately too.

That is a very nice picture of you Mom! But to forget to feed you! Unacceptable! I think she needs some training re-enforcement!

EMPTY BOWL!!! She's lucky you let her off so easily. The picture of her sure is fun though :-)

If our bowls ever get empty in the night, we make sure the Beans wake up cuz we keep walking up and down all over them until mum gets out of bed and fills the crunchies up.She tries to remember to check them before she goes to bed.

Poor Derby - your mom forgot to feed you - that is just unforgivable (at least until she remembers). Glad she finally remembered.

It doesn't matter how cute your mum is, that's no excuse for letting your food bowl get empty.

Derby, do you need therapy? I've heard some kitties need therapy after seeing their crunchies bowl empty..it can be quite traumatic! I've even heard that somecats can't stand the sight of the BOTTOM of their bowl and will faint! But, it's nobody that you know, of course..just speakin' in general terms, of course!

Our humans do that too at times..we proceed to whap at their face and wake them up from their sleep..

Cats said...

SnowForest human: thank you for your comforting words after the loss of our dear Forest ~ we truly appreciate them and would like to send you our best regards..

Wow Derby, your Mum sure wasn't thinking straight if she forgot to feed you! We bet that she never, ever does this again! We love your Mom's caricature, those are always a lot of fun!

This is terrible, Derby. I would be very cross if that happened to me. I hope your mum learned her lesson and doesn't do it again!

What a cute sketchy of your mom. And how cool she got gifts from the party. But empty food bowl? Shame shame.
