Chatting Cats: Flippin’ Tables…Ummmm Plates
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Ya’ know how we’re always meowin’ ‘bout how kitties have these basic needs. Ya’ know, the things that drive us. And, we’re very blest to have a mommy that unnerstands that and thinks humans shouldn’t try to change us. And yet, every day mommy gets furustrated with me at meal time over one of these drives.
Raena, me can’t believe you meowed that. Mommy doesn’t get furustrated with ya’ ‘bout the doin’, it’s the result of the doin’ she gets furustrated ‘bout.
Hmmmmpht It’s me she’s talkin’ to, I’s think I’s oughtta know what she’s furustrated with. Let me just tell ya’ ‘bout it and see what ya’ll have to say. Ya’ know, us kitty cats, like our big cousins, are finely tuned purr-edators. Yep, we’ve got mad skills.
Raena…you’ve been watchin’ too much teevee. Meow right or don’t meow at all.
Whatever sissy. Anyways, the feline form was built to hunt and kill. Unfurtunately, there are some animals that think we’re prey. Hmmmpht They’ve never met mine’s claws or fangs.
You deserved the whacky paw of justice here, but
it’s just not who we are.
Raena, we’re Ragdolls, we don’t actually do much real huntin’. We don’t even give the old whacky paw of justice when it might be needed. It might be in our DNA to hunt, but me doesn’t think we’d do too much actual killin’.
There ya’ go sissy. X’actly!!! That’s why it’s so ‘purrtant fur me to cover mine’s meal in t’ween bites. I’s fur sure don’t wanna end up as somethin’ else’s meal. I’s don’t want somethin’ bigger and meaner comin’ along and smellin’ mine’s noms and thinkin’ I’s would make a good snack.
Raena, the only thing bigger and well, she ain’t meaner, me doesn’t think anythin’ could be meaner than you…
Sissy!!! That’s not very nice. I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean to me.
Sorry Raena. Anyways, like me was meowin’, the only thing bigger than you in this house is mommy, and she ain’t gonna sniff your noms and try to eat you. She’s just kitten ‘round when she says she luvs us so much she could just eat us up. She doesn’t mean she really wants to eat us.
Well course not sissy. I’s know that. I’s meowin’ ‘bout all those things you claim to be purrtectin’ us from durin’ the storms. What ifin they was to smell mine’s noms and think I’s be tasty.
Trust me Raena, there ain’t nuffin in this house that thinks you might be tasty. And, there’s no way mommy would let anythin’ or anypawdy ever hurt you, much less eat you. So all that scratchin’ and turnin’ over of your food plate isn’t necessary. All it does is make a mess and waste food. That’s the pawrt mommy gets furustrated ‘bout. She spends good money, money we don’t have in abundance to make sure we have the very bestest noms to eat, just to see you flip the plate at every meal. You’re like one of those silly housewives on that reality teevee you like to watch so much.
Nah sissy, they’re always mad, I’s just doin’ what comes naturally.
Really? Then why doesn’t me need to cover me’s noms? Could it be that me’s older and wiser and maybe you could learn a thing or two from watchin’ me?
Sissy, get outta mine’s noms!!!
Hmmmmpht Like watchin’ you eat mine’s noms ifin I’s don’t cover it up?
(Dezi shakes her head) There just ain’t no reasonin’ with you, is there? Well, guess mommy’ll just have to keep turnin’ your plate back over and puttin’ the food back in it. Let’s go finish brekky, mommy’s got your food back in the plate now.
Okay sissy. I’s’ll be right there. I’s just wanted to remind everypawdy there’s still time to enter our pawsum give away. Check it out here.
Do any of you try to cover your food?
Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!
