Here's my beloved little stinker - Polly - giving me the *hint* that the kitty food dish needs to be topped off [again ... constantly ... omg!]
You guys know how people food is often packaged with a 'best used by' date?
Well, the kitty dish at my house operates via a similar method.
Yup. Apparently any cat food placed within its confines becomes stale/inedible/subject-to-feline-disdain once it has aged in the bowl for longer than 3-5 minutes.
Plus I'm a sucker for cute/furry.
Look at that adorable round grey *soul patch* on her chin!
When we rescued her as an abandoned stray - 6 years ago - she was so painfully thin it hurt. Needless to say she's now part of the family, and my life is richer for having her in it.
BTW - it's somewhat humbling to discover just how smart our pets may sometimes be. We've taught Polly to play hide & seek, to understand how some things work [like lights off/on], a whole host of words & expressions that she seems to grasp the basic idea behind.
Funnily enough, one night I was giving myself a pedicure with Polly up beside me on the bed. She kept watching and seemed fairly intrigued by what I was doing. So [with the lid on, of course] - I showed her the bottle of nail polish, my toes where I was painting them, the loofah, etc. After taking in the whole thing, she stuck out one of her legs and began grooming. LOL
Coincidence? Probably. But whether it was my own kids, a friend, or even somebody's pet ... I've always enjoyed 'reaching' to someone's particular level, relating to them, and hopefully passing a smile/or a bit of learning along the way.
My kids say I'm a natural teacher, or artist, or writer. That I should be doing something *important* with my life.
Where in the h*ll am I supposed to find the time to do something more *important* than keeping the cat food topped off?
At least Polly thinks I'm doing just fine.
Or does she???????
