We've had new neighbors across the street for a little while now and they have three outdoor cats. They're a good looking trio, too! We've been taking turns watching them from the windows as they strut around and sprawl out on sidewalks. They even lie in the middle of the street sometimes, though they seem to know they should move when they see or hear a car coming. Good thing we don't get alot of traffic. Sometimes when mom is out front gardening or talking with a neighbor, they go up to her for some attention and she gives it to them, of course. We've noticed that their owners leave food outside for them and they have regular food parties with other strange cats, but we haven't been invited yet.
I had my annual physical the other day and the vet said I've gained a half pound since last year and that I need to go on a diet because of my young age. I already eat low-cal food and now they want to manage my portions! Let me tell you, I screamed all the way to the vet's office, during my exam, and all the way home! There was another cat in the waiting room who screamed like me so we had an opera thing going.
Well, I'd sure like to know if my new neighbors have to eat low-cal food, so I think it's time to pull out the recipe book and bake them a catnip pie and introduce myself. Something tells me I'll be screaming more after I find out what they're eating!
