The End Of A Kibble Era


When Angel and Chuck were kittens, The Hubby and I fed them kitten kibble.  At that time (almost 14 years ago!), the kibble came in really nifty, reusable canisters.  As time progressed, I simply kept refilling them.  When Angel and Chuck were switched to wet food only, these containers came under the purview of The 'O' Cats, and sat on top of the refrigerator where no inside cat could jump up and attempt a kibble snatch. 
The piece of tape on the handle was for the days when we used two kinds of kibble
Back and front

Aww gee whiz, my babies aren't babies anymore!

As the years went on, the bags of kibble dwindled in size, and these days, one bag of kibble for The 'O' Cats only fills two of the old containers.  So The Hubby threw out two of the four today, in the recycle bin for the trash guys to take away.  Who knew I'd be so sentimental about old plastic canisters?  Guess it's a last link to the sweet, baby kittens that we adopted, who are now considered seniors at 12-1/2 years.  So, a fond farewell to those old things; you did your job excellently!  Hope you are recycled into something that is as useful as you once were.  Bon Voyage!

  7. We can relate. Our mom just got rid of a little bunting she made out of a towel for Eddie and William's old sis Sophie to wrap her when she gave her fluids--and Sophie flew away in 2003. Some things are just hard to part with.

  9. I totally know what you mean. Sometimes it's the simple things can be meaningful.

  11. I fully understand your feelings! I hang on to a plastic round litter bucket from our first cat who has been gone 13 years. It is a great garbage can in Chuck's workshop!
