The Big Piney Woods Cats

Sunday, May 06, 2007


This morning it was disgustingly late (4:35 AM) and the Furless Ones had been napping for hours. It was way past feeding time. (Momma has to put my food up in the night, so Mittens doesn't sneak downstairs and eat any.) Momma had her hand hanging off the side of the bed, so I licked it and she just put it under the covers, then I licked Daddy's eyebrow. I went downstairs and did my famous "get up" yowl! For five minutes I did this, finally I went back upstairs, thinking they were surely dead! Momma came around at 5:30 and fed us, by this time I was a complete rack of bones!! I was so emancipated my face was hollow and I felt weak and shaky. See how hollow my cheeks are.....

    Patches, those are the chubbiest hollow cheeks I haf efer seen. But I sympathize... feeling hungry is no joking matter at all. Beans need to be a lot more disciplined wif delivering our food punctually.

    Poor dear sweet Patches... you have been through such an ordeal. I also know what it's like to nearly starve while waiting (and waiting) for my humans to give me my good food.

    Your Momma means well, though. Try to be patient with her and Daddy.

    Oh we know how you feel, twice a day we wail - and in unison - because we're starving to death. You just can't get the staff these days!

    Sheesh, you certainly get your beans up very early. Mum would never get out of bed that early!

    My mom's laughin' her head off, but poor Patches, I'm so sorry you had to get all emancipated and whatnot! Beans should know to get up when we kiss their hands or their faces so we don't have to get all ornery and start yellin' at 'em!

    Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

    That's why I insist on dinner instead of breakfast--at least I know I don't have to try to wake my mom up!

    Oh poor Patches. Merlin knows just how you feel. He gets all skinny and hollow too waitin on his stinky goodness. We don't know where we are going yet, but the pacific northwest is on Mom's list of maybes 'cause she likes it there alot. It's goin to be where daddy 'bean gets a job though~poiland tribe
