Cleaning Up Dinner

Ayla: We all get equal portions of dinner. Of course, we dont all eat the same amount, at least not at once. I eat real fast. I allus lick my bowl clean quick an then walk away. Iza eats more cause she is bigger, but she has learned to wait ta see what is left. LC eats really slow and sometimes it drives Iza crazy waitin ta see what is left.

In fact, ya may remember that Iza hadda eat her foods closed up inna bathroom fer some Big Moons when she first came here so she wouldnt eat our foods too. But she is over that now. She just waits patiently.

Amazingly, sometimes Iza is full from her own bowl an even leaves some (like when she has jus eaten a mousie I catched). Well yesserday, there was some food left over after we all walked away!

I came back to finish it. I was HUNGRY!

Now, I should mention that we all have our preferred eating spots. In the above picture, LC eats at the top corner, I eat in the lower corner, and Iza eats in the middle. I dont know why, it just werked out that way when Iza arrived.

Actally, Skeeter used eat in the top corner and LC in the middle. LC moved over ta Skeeter's spot, and Iza took the middle spot. I like eatin near the door.

But wouldnt ya know, Iza so much as hears me eatin an she has ta come back ta make sure she isnt missin somethin.

So she licked LC's bowl clean while I licked Her bowl clean, and when LC came back later there wasn't even a SMELL left in anny of the bowls. We were STILL HUNGRY!

It all werked out OK. TBT gave us a "advance" on breakfast an gave us all some more foods until we stopped eatin...

Well I am glad that everyone got enough to eat. I have to SHARE a bowl--actually I won't eat out of my own bowl any more.

TBT is awesome to give you an advance on breakfast!!

We all have to be separated 2 kitties to a room when we eat. Our Ferris and Maizy would eat everyones foods if they could.

Yeah, the cooler weather has me wanting to eat more too.

LC, I am certain you are an expert on kittie cabooses, if you know what I mean!

That was furry nice of The Big Thing to give you an advance on your breakfast ...

You asked where to get the "Dadcat" t-shirt. Tell TBT to surf the innernets to http://www.crazyshirts.com and then search in the "search box" for DADCAT. It comes in navy blue an' will be sent right away when he orders it. Grandad is wearin' his today an' he looks furry handsome an' "accurate" in his shirt. Grandma has a "Momcat" shirt with her jugglin' five kitties!

See, that's one of the ways you know you've got some great Staff! They feed your need. Oh, and they love it when you sleep with'em in their bed.
And they let you out to chase critters and don't get all excited when you catch and eat one.
You know..stuff like that.

It's always nice when one cat leaves a little bit in the dish so another can come back and have a little snack...

That's a real eating ritual, lol !
My cats are only all in the kitchen in the mornings. Two only eat dry food, the others wet food and dry food. We have no eating hours, Mr. Gattino takes care of that he can't stand empty bowls he always fears that his darlings are starving ! Fortunately the cats are more reasonable and only eat when they are hungry !

I am glad to hear that other cats have different eating rates and amount. Harley eats twice as much food as me, and he still finishes way before I am done eating!
