Messin with Em Monday

I couldn't help but notice that my parents had recently bought three cases of my favorite food. You know it was on sale and Her Cheapness was beside herself in the store when she noticed it. I'm sure calculations were flying fast and loose between them when they calculated a .30 cent per can savings.

At first I was pretty excited to see them all lined up too. No worries I'd run out of gravy any time soon, that's for sure. That's when I started to realize it also meant there would be no variety coming my way either. Beef and Chicken with gravy is delish, but what about beef or chicken alone, or duck? Day after day without any variety?

I think not. So I refused my regular fare and cried out at the injustice. Mom forced Dad to return and try some new flavors. Victory is mine! I can't help but snicker a little when I look at those forsaken trays of my regular fare. Sure eventually I'll eat them too, but I think my point has been made friends.

Life is unpredictable, and you should be too.

  3. I like pulling the switcheroo on my human - I'll like one flavor and hate another... and then I'll decide I don't like that flavor either and prefer something else altogether! It keeps her on her toes!

  7. Hahahaha! We do the same thing, Fin, which frustrates our mom to no end. Of course that's the idea! Now she just feeds what we don't want to the neighbour's cat...which might be why he's taken up residence on our step and won't go into his house next door.

  13. My mom has to by me the wet food I love best, FF chicken hearts and livers. BUT, while I spurn everything else..occasionally I spurn that too and that's when she brings out the FF chicken or Friskies chicken dinner occasionally. Mommy always thinks it;s fun to see all the other cat mom's and dad's in the cat food aisle pondering which to get.

  14. Whenever Mom think she has worked out my absolute favorite food, I show her that it isn't any more. I also vacillate between whether I like pate style more than gravy style, or refuse to eat pate style. Can't let them think they have us worked out Fin.

  15. Fin - we've learned to watch the food cupboard too - we hate mum to get too complacent!! We always try to get her on the wrong foot and we usually do.
    Lucy is going to the v-e-t again this afternoon - why when we go is there one cat, one rabbit and 973 dogs all barking!!

  17. Fin, you are SO lucky! We can't afford to be picky. Or some other Cat eats our share! HMPH.

  18. So that is where we got the idea of refusing food because we wanted a different flavor. Thanks so much Fin. Our assistant gets really confused when we refuse to eat the food we normally like a lot. Take care.

  21. Your little tale today sounds like what we "have to put up with from 'The Boys'".

    Some days, it seems like all I do is open cans of cat food trying to figure out who wants what food.

    I figure if I can get at least half (2) of them eating one flavor for one meal at the same time, I've done good!

    You go on with your bad self, Fin!

  24. Finny, this is SS. I am not allowing Momo to read this because I have also bought 3 boxes of food for her. There is no exchange on specials.

  25. You are masterful in your manipulations of your parents, Fin. Bravo!!!
