During the recent Thanksgiving holiday, I was home four days in a row. With shopping and visiting family, I was in and out of the house quite a bit. However, even when I arrived home at 2:30 pm, the cats went into their begging mode, as if it was dinner time! They kept at it for as long as it took for me to cave in and feed 'em. Then, of course, they were hungry before bedtime, and tried for more food then. I ended up dishing out venison and green pea so many times, that the kitchen sink filled up with used, empty bowls, and thats when The Hubby started to yowl too!
Being back to the usual work schedule has put an end to this dance. And did I mention that Chuck won't eat all of his meal, until I put sprinkles on it? "Sprinkles" is our word for nutritional yeast, which is powdery, flaky stuff, Parmesan cheese-like. I've been mixing it into the 'o' cat's food, and learned that it was a great way to encourage Chuck to eat when he was off his feed while sick. Now, he'll eat about 1/3 of his meal, then step away until I 'sprinkle' the bowl with a pinch of yeast. Angel makes a sweet 'meow' as I sprinkle her food too. Do these two (or is it really four?) cats have me wrapped around their paws or what!?!
