Healthy Pet Mews
Pet Food Store Owner Starves Cat!
MAU MAU HERE (you were expecting someone else?)
I got a fish bone to pick here with my family. My parents had to go on a day trip the other day. Not overnight but gone from early morning till late at night. They left the dumb puppy and the old dog and me with ….. THE KIDS!!!!! Yes, the two teenagers.
Well, it was not too bad since the girl wanted to pet me and I did spend a lot of time laying in her lap. Nice, warm, cushy (no, I am NOT saying she is fat…). The boy sneezes a lot and I always answer with three meows (God Bless You). But he was downstairs playing with some handheld device with buttons that made cartoons do things on the tv. Seems to like to do this a lot. Mom says he plays “way too much”. But he always picks me up and rubs my belly (UGH- I do NOT like that… I am NOT a dog, or has he forgotten that???)
Well, anyway, it came to be dinnertime and I waited……. and waited….. and waited. I meowed, rubbed against both of their legs, even purred. Nothing. I waited some more…took a catnap, looked pitiful. Nothing. The boy kept on with that stupid handheld device, and the girl kept on taking pictures of herself with her phone. In my opinion, more pictures of me and less of you, Sister.
Needless to say…. HERE IS THE HORROR OF IT ALL…Yes, can you believe it – they FORGOT TO FEED ME! I tried to call DCFS (Division of Cat Family Services) to hotline them but the cats answering the phone had left for the night to go have dinner. I AM STARVING at this point. Wasting away to nothing. No amount of meowing, purring, being cute could get their attention. I just went and laid down and looked at them. Really! (I am still traumatized… oh no, that is just my stomach rumbling)
Mom and Dad finally came home and fed us. The TEENAGERS got in BIG TROUBLE. HaHa… serves them right. Bet they never forget to feed me again. I still have that 800# to the hotline.. now only if the cats would answer the phone! So don’t forget to get the cat’s food if you are out or your cat might call that 800#!
