And the Cupboard Was Bare

Old Mama Cat Lady went to her cupboard
to fetch her poor kitties some squishies
And when she got there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor kitties had none!

She went to the bakers
to buy us some breads
but when she came back
we stood on our heads

She went to the market
To buy us some fish
but when she got back
we had hidden our dish

She went to the seaport
To get us a whale
But when she came back
We were reading her mail

She went to the distributor
To get us some brews
When she came back
We were watching the news


Okay...you get the message. Today Mom went in our cupboard to get us breakfast and there were only two big cans left and a few small cans of Fancy Feast. We usually have an extra box that we keep big cans in and that was empty too. Things have been crazy busy and Mom didn't get to the grocery store last week. Tonight she has a meeting and then has to go for Grammy's groceries. On her way back, she promises to replenish our stock.

Does this ever happen at your house? Or is my mommy being derelict in her duties to us? Hmmmm She better shape up! MOL!

We always have dry food, but there were a few mornings when me and Tiny had to split a can and hope we could go the rest of the day until Mommy comes home from work and goes to the store to get us more. We pretend we've been starving just go make Mommy guilty. Mommy buys us tons of food a week and thinks it's going to last longer than it does. We love canned food!

We do have our dry food. Mom buys us lots too, with 9 of us, we go through about 5 or 6 cans a day and sometimes some extra packets like whiskas or little cans of Fancy Feast. she just better get to that store tonight....I keep telling her that it is open 24 hours a day, so there is no excuse!

I hope your mom got to the store for your food. We just got a new supply of foods ourselves!

Our Mom buys cat food by the case a couple of times a month, so we have not run out yet. We live in an earthquake zone, so Mom always keeps extra food and water on hand just in case of an emergency. She shudders to think what would happen if we ran out of cat food ~ now that would be a real cat-tastrophe!

Mom just got back from the store. We are well stocked now. She even gave us treats tonight. Tully, great pun! Did you ever have an earthquake? How scary, at least they can warn us for snowstorms and hurricanes. You don't have that with an earthquake.

She went to the deli
to buy us some lichen.
And when she came back
we were painting the kitchen.

Yes, most definitely we have had food crises here, too, though more often for the ferals. The Mama has even fed them OUR food! And that Socks, who is being allowed in some of the time now, comes right over and eats it out of OUR BOWLS, if you can believe that!!!

Pawrents went to the store
To buy Whisker Licken'
When they got back
We were eating their Chicken!!!


We love to eat here. We are big eaters, and have dry food down, but I can't eat that myself. So our canned food is fed, a tablespoon of Fancy feast approx, 3-4 times a day.

There are now 7 of us here....6 and one foster.

I'm surprised Error 4 didn't get me for making lichen rhyme with with kitchen - hehehe...that's the British pronunciation so I'm told! ;)

She went to Subway
to buy us a sandwich
And when she got back
We were all doing hand stitch.

Which is a proper occupation for any well brought up young lady cat! And it doesn't hurt for boys to know how to do a little sewing, too. Tee hee...
