I learned something new recently. I noticed that every evening, Mouse would get up and go over to tell Mommy something. Mommy would then get out of her chair and start walking down the stairs, sometimes carrying Mouse. Every cat would follow, no matter where they were or what they were doing. All the cats would gather around Mommy's feet and run in and out of her legs and try to make her fall down the stairs. Then Mommy would go over to food bowls with five cats meowing and purring up a storm.
I would wait until the coast was clear of people and cats and then go to see what they were up to. Fancy Feast Appetizers! But there would be very little, if anything, left in the dishes.
Finally one day last week, I decided to join them when there was still food to be had. Now I am the first one there as soon as I hear the signal from Mouse. (He is HOH so he controls when we eat.) I sit by my dish and look very shy and pretty while Mommy puts the noms in the dishes. Or sometimes I show up and surprise her at the cabinet. I can't believe I was missing this ritual all this time!
Mommy loves to see all six of us eating our noms at the same time, and I love getting my share instead of scraps!
MOl..I am always first when I hear the cans rattle..remember the shy cat eats last..be very outgoing, like me!
Good job--you are getting very brave!
I just knew you had lots of bravery and courage in that pretty face!
Pretty soon you'll be running the household!
We're so happy to hear that you are getting braver and making sure you get your fair share!
Good job, Hazel! I'm glad you're not missing out on the good stuff anymore!
