The other morning my dad tried to feed me my usual food, but it smelled off, so I didn't eat any. After a while I got really hungry and had to pester my mom during breakfast. She got me more food, but it smelled just as off, so I didn't eat that either.
In the process of getting me more food from the fridge, she said something to my dad about the food not being cold. She opened up the freezer and said, "The food's not frozen anymore!" I guess this was a bad thing, because all kinds of commotion ensued after that.
My dad went out, and my mom sniffed my food. "Ugh," she said, and dumped it down the drain. She opened a can of cat food, which I haven't had in a long time. I had forgotten cat food comes in cans, because my mom and dad make fresh food for me in the kitchen. The food from the can didn't smell off but it smelled strange. It didn't smell bad; in fact, it smelled pretty good, but it was strange, very unlike my usual home-made food. I was so hungry I gulped down most of it anyway.
My dad came back with several bags of ice, and he and my mom moved some things out of the refrigerator and freezer and into a cooler, along with the bags of ice. There were long, involved discussions in the kitchen regarding what to do about the food until a new fridge could be delivered.
The strange food sat heavily in my stomach, so I slunk off to find a place to sleep. I slept almost all day because the food made my tummy feel odd. I was not happy at the prospect of having to eat this new strange food from now on, because of how queasy it made me feel. In fact, it was a little depressing.
But the next day a new fridge was delivered, and as soon as they put their food back into it, my mom and dad went out to the store to make a fresh batch of food for me. I'm grateful for the strange canned food because I didn't have to go hungry for a day when the fridge was broken, but I am really, really glad to be fed my usual food again! I hope this new refrigerator lasts a long, long time so my mom and dad can make endless batches of food for me that will stay nice and fresh and I can savor every last little morsel of it.

You certainly deserved a new fridge and how cool that your folks make your meals for you!
