|Let me explain our eating situation.
Blondies dish is on one side of the refrigerator. The
water dish is right behind her against the wall. And, right above the
water dish is a shelf where our BFC keeps our food. My food dish is on
the other side of the refrigerator, right near the door to my old nursery.
Punkies dish is on top of the washing machine.
(Yes, theres a story behind Punkies dish.
It was before my time, but it seems the nice vet lady
said Blondie had a weight problem. Im trying real hard not to snickermy
BFCs cousin in Arizona summed up Blondies build perfectlyshes full
figured. Anyway, the nice vet lady had our BMC and BFC put Blondie on
a diet. She had special food that they had to get from the vet lady. The
problem, the way I hear it, was to keep Blondie from eating Punkies food.
So, our BMC and BFC realized that because of her weight, Blondies not
a jumper...I can attest to that...she only goes as high as the bed or
windowsill. Anyway, they started putting Punkies dish on top of the washing
machine and there it still remains. End of story.)
So...thats the dish placement. Currently,
the nice vet lady said we could all eat the same food. Its just plain,
ordinary light food. Usually, no, Ill say always, in the morning, Blondies
dish is empty. Blondie can usually be found laying against our BFCs legs
in bed. In this way, Blondies always alerted to the moment when our BFC
wakes up. When our BFC gets up, she always goes into the bathroom first
and Blondie goes with her.
Then our BFC goes to the kitchen and immediately puts a scoop of food
in Blondies dish. Sometimes, Blondie starts eating right away, but sometimes
she waits while our BFC fills Punkies dish and lastly my dish. Then,
Blondie will eat.
MY food dish (the actual center of
Latitude 41.90, Longitude -87.63.
I think Blondie just likes to make sure that
our BFC knows the routine, but secretly, I think Blondie just wants to
make sure that everyone gets some food in their dish. I think she thinks
Punkie and I wont have to eat out of her dish then. Punkie very seldom
eats out of Blondies dish, but Punkie does eat from my dish sometimes.
But thats okay cause I sometimes eat out of Punkies dish. But...now
you all have to promise you wont tell Blondie (though, I think shes
but I eat out of Blondies dish a lot. Its
just that her dish is right there when you come down the hall into the
kitchen. You know, when youre starving, sometimes you just cant even
make it to the other side of the refrigerator.
Should I or
the last one to take my morning nap. After she eats in the morning, Blondie
immediately retires to the front of the space heater in the dining roomshe
usually doesnt budge until lunch time. (Guess what??? Blondie snores!
She claims she doesnt.)
Punkie, on the other paw, hangs out on the
pillows in one of the front windows. She likes to watch the birds and
squirrels in the tree in front of our building. Then, she usually settles
down for her nap.
Me, I dont know what it is,
but I cant sleep right away. Maybe I just have too much energy. My BFC
says Im afraid Im going to miss something. Maybe shes right. Who knows???
When I do finally get pooped, I like sleeping
behind the space heater...its toasty. At night, I like sleeping with
my BMC. Hes got a nice hairy arm that makes a good pillow and hes pretty
toasty, too. Sometimes, I like to go under the bed and ambush anyone who
walks by. During the day, I do like sleeping in my BFCs lap when shes
working on the computer or on the sofa next to the desk so I can make
sure shes really working!
