You may want to get an animal welfare charity on speed dial before you read of our shameful treatment.
Mum was bustling about yesterday and she scooped up our water bowl and gave the water to the plants as she does every morning but she got distracted and forgot the very important Part Two of that process. Where was our fresh water? Where was any water?
When she came home and saw a gap where our water bowl should be her face fell.
"How did I forget? Poor cats. Here all day with no water. How could I have done that?"
How indeed?! She put some down right away but the damage was done. I was just explaining the torment of our thirst and how only a handful of Dreamies or some fresh chicken would remove the horror from my mind as mum went in her room to get changed. Her eyes fell on the glasses by her bed.
"You drank that of course. Thank goodness."
"Well, yes, there was that, but we were still tormented...."
She looked at me.
"Still I bet you're glad you haven't got around to getting a cup with a straw like some of my Catster friends suggested."
She admitted she was. To be fair to her she's never done that before and I don't think she will again - and she gave us some ham and then I found out I was a Diary Pick again which is something quite splendid so I am minded to forgive her. But if she ever does do it again there'll be trouble and hopefully it will make her forget the straw idea.

That should make her forget about the straw, MOL! And ham, well ham makes up for most things.
Forgot? How could she forget? I bet she didn't forget her morning tea. Have you noticed that humans get more forgetful as they age? It's a natural process for them.
Toby, you are so dramatic!
