Mum likes to tell us stories of the cats she has known and loved in the past. I'm pretty sure they aren't true. These paragons never woke her at night, came when called, sat daintily on a lap when invited etc. Nah! These are the cats of her imagination.
One thing she says is that they came to her at meal-times so their bowls were always in one place. Unless we're really especially hungry Josie and I like our food brought to us. We wait at our chosen place - hall, kitchen, sitting room, wherever we feel like that day.
Mum mutters that she can't think how she came to be our waitress but talented human trainers like us do make it look effortless.
Anyway this does mean that our bowls are rarely in a neat corner of the kitchen. Very rarely - the floor is cold in there.
So yesterday mum was walking through, plate of food in hand, when her big foot landed not on the carpet she expected but on one of our bowls and it slid beneath her. She didn't come crashing down which would have been really funny but in her efforts not to fall her hand flew around and potatoes hurtled to the ground. Josie was quick to move - she's not so keen on potatoes but there might be a little bit of butter to lick and she's very keen on that.
Mum said, "oh no!" and declared that we will eat tidily in the future as she scooped up the casualties. Lucky for her we don't believe her!

Don't humans know they are put on this earth to serve us and to cater to our every whim. Sounds like your Mum is more advanced in her training than my is but I haven't been with my mum for that long.

Oh how I envy you, Toby. If only I could train our Mom to serve us our food. Can't she see that I'm the resident Purrincess here and should be served paw and paw? But no, my bowl is always at the same place :( I do LOVE food more than anything. So I'm quick to run to my bowl, and any other bowl, as soon as it gets put on the ground. I need to make more of an effort to train Mom.
