Kibble monsters, part deaux

So I was going to be out of town for five days. So I put five days of food into the automated food dispenser for the kibble monsters. Paused. Thought a few seconds. Put five days more food into the food dispenser. Paused. Thought a few seconds. Put two days more food into the food dispenser.

The greedy feline kibble monsters ate it all up.

I swear, the black kitty must have gained four pounds while I was gone. And while their fur certainly is soft and shiny now (not that it wasn't beforehand!), they're back on their diet again. Well, if I can ever move, between the kitty curled on my lap and the kitty curled on my feet, both purring. Hmm, guess they missed me :).

  1. naw, they ran out of food.. & the food machine fixer (you) came back ;-)

    consider yourself lucky!

  2. Well, Bobby, my cats use *me* as their cat tree, so I don't know if I could survive having that many cats!

  3. So, what you're saying is that you put TWELVE days of food in the dispenser and you were only gone FIVE days? The cats ate all that food in the time you were gone? They must be part dog!

  4. Yeah, I think the black kitty (Tux) is part dog. When people comee to visit, he climbs all over them to get petted. But no, they didn't eat 12 days of food in the 5 days I was gone. They only ate 10 days of food. It took them another day to eat the other 2 days of food. Neither one of them needed it, they're both a bit on the hefty side.

    Hmm, I just heard a big noise from the laundry room and the black kitty ran over and hid under my chair, tail puffed up. I just checked it out, and he was attacked by the Bucket Monster. Apparently he got into the laundry room (I'd left the door open because I'm filling up the washer one sock at a time :), and jumped onto the shelf over the washer, thereby knocking over the bucket resting thereupon. Hmm, now he's stalking sideways across the door to the hallway (the laundry room is at the other end of the hallway), tail all puffed up, ready to take on the Bucket Monster but not quite sure he wants to get closer (heh!)...

    Can't say that these are boring kitties, anyhow!

  5. I have to get a catsitter when I leave town because my tuxedo cat (whom I cleverly named TC) would eat until he exploded.
