Hi Every Cat,
Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions on ridding our lives of the evil blue and green balls. Especially we liked the idea of putting mom's food in there and of throwing up on the evil balls.
Mom told me last night that I was being overly dramatic about our food plight and I needed to explain that she was Not Really the Big Meanie that I portrayed her to be in the last blog.
Yes, we still have the evil blue ball and the evil green ball but the truth is mom feeds us our soft Fancy Feast food just like always and our Crunchy Wellness food is put in our black porcelain bowls at night time before she goes to sleep.
It's just during the day time while mom is away hunting that she now picks up our black porcelain crunchy food bowls and tells us that we need to get daytime food from our evil blue and green balls.
One other clarification. The food spitting evil balls really have three different sizes of hole in them and can be adjusted (by anyone with opposable thumbs) to any of the three sizes. Mom has ours adjusted to the biggest hole that lets out about ten or twenty crunchies at one whack (if it's a pretty hard whack).
So we really aren't being mistreated. Mom just doesn't want us to overeat, like someone, let's call him Tommy, tends to do.
Mom's going to be gone on a work "retreat" the rest of this week from Wednesday early thirty until Friday evening but a nice person and friend is coming to take care of us and Mom promises we will have our black porcelain bowls filled all the time while she is gone and has instructions to give us extra treats whenever we ask for them.
Thanks again for your comments,
Shilgiah and Tommy
