Anyway, that isn’t the point. You see she was making waffles this morning and she went to the giant binder of her recipes, because she never can remember anything these days, and I wanted to help her find the waffle recipe. But the binder is huge and she did not want me to sit on the pages or get hurt by the gynormous clip in the center. But, I did not want to move. Oh, Mom keeps her recipes in plastic sheet protectors because that way she can hang them in front of her on the cabinet while she is cooking and also so that when she spills stuff it doesn’t ruin the paper. (Of course, I never help her spill stuff. Actually, she doesn’t let me on the counter when she is seriously cooking stuff.)
Shall I tell you the secret to Mom’s awesome waffles? No, not cat hair, lemon juice. Ah oh, am I going to get in trouble for spilling the beans?
Dear Noel: My humans keep trying to limit me to 2 meals a day, but I want more. What’s a feline to do? – Your devoted hungry fan – Grumps
Dear Grumps: You could always do what I do, stand on the kitchen table or counter and whine and whine and whine until they can’t take it anymore and they give you a least a few extra kibbles. Last week, I did that at 3 in the morning and it worked like a charm. Best of luck – Noel, the Queen of the Zoo
Mr. Nine is sorely missed at the Zoo. There is not a day that goes by that Mini isn’t looking for her buddy. For a rather small guy (Nine was 9 lbs (of course he was)), he had a very large presence. He usually disappeared when anyone he didn’t know was in the house, but otherwise, he was out and about all the time (even at 3 AM): playing on the cat tree, sleeping in the boat (SS Stella), menacing Noel. He loved to lay behind V on the couch and snuggle.
We won the lottery for 11 years with that guy!
I will be adding him to the ANGELS page which you can find in the top menu.
Noel: Nine, I told you that she was busy and she wasn’t going to give you any treats.
Why don’t you listen to me? I know her every move. I have been here 15 years.
Nine: Listen, old lady, I know that you have been around the zoo fur a million years, but if I stay on the counter and look cute and starving, she will break down and give us something. You just watch!
Noel: Is it working, Nine?
I cannot imagine a life without cats!
Just another CATDogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
